Competitive Training Day, Arundel East

All are welcome to enter this helpful day for anyone to try a light-hearted competition in an easy and relaxed atmosphere. Ideal for those who have not competed much, or who have a young dog. Only those who have attended two or more of the training evenings can win an award.

Any members (or prospective new members) keen to start training but unsure as to whether they’re either ready for Level 1, or unsure of what’s involved, are encouraged to come along with their dog and watch the training sessions, meet the Training Co-ordinator and Trainers and have an informal chat about how to progress.  A controlled introduction for young dogs who can sit on lead and watch a session.
