We are pleased to announce that we are running several new workshops in 2019

  • 10 week Puppy socialisation course

  • 10 week Basic Obedience course

  • Monthly Hoopers workshops

  • Monthly scent/Nose work workshop

First: Two new Hoopers workshops in January and February 2019:

Hoopers is one of the fastest growing UK Dog sports. Dogs run through hoops and tunnels and around barrels. These two workshops are for any dog, new to Hoopers or already doing Hoopers. The dogs can be large, medium or small and any age (minimum of 6 months and fully vaccinated, there is no upper age limit). Dogs who are retired from agility can do Hoopers. It is a low impact sport and can improve your distance handling which means it is great for all handlers and their abilities.

Dogs do not need to have done Hoopers before and if you wanted, you and your dog can do both workshops?

Graham Tappin from GemGray Dog Training Club is one of a handful of Canine Hoopers UK Accredited Trainers. He will be training us on these two workshops.

Dates: Sunday 27th January 2019 and Sunday 24th February 2019

Time: 2:15 pm to 4:15pm for both dates

Venue for both workshops: Westfield Stables, Fenway, Steeple Aston, Oxon. OX25 4SS

Price: 20 per dog per workshop

Places need to be booked for either of these courses:  Contact Jennie ockcairns@yahoo.com for further information

A Scent/Nose work workshop on Saturday 12th January 2019


Scent work is a natural occupation for your dog. It uses its nose to learn about the world around it from who or what has just walked along the path, sniffing out drugs, to telling their owner they have a low or high blood glucose as in people who have Diabetes. In these workshops we will teach the dogs to find a specific  scent (in this case first sausages and then Cloves) and for the dog to indicate to the owner that it has found the scent hidden in boxes and luggage. Dogs will learn 'Odour Recognition' and be able to find the hidden scent.  Owners will learn how to read their dog's body language indicating the dog has found the scent. New dogs welcome.

The courses are for any dog, big or small, old or young (minimum age is 4 months and fully vaccinated). There is a maximum of 10 dogs for each of these workshops. 

Date: Saturday 12th January 2019  

Time 14:00 to 16:00 

Venue: Arncott village hall, Arncott 

Price: 20 per dog  

Places need to be booked for this course

Is your dog a 'Pain' to walk? Does it come back when called? Does it ignore you when off lead? 

If the answer to any of these questions is YES then the new 10 week Basic Obedience course will be just what you need!

Venue: Arncott village hall, Upper Arncott, Bicester
