News update for dog training!!

  • Great news, we are able to restart the agility and Hoopers classes!! 

We are back to Wednesday evenings from 7 pm for agility and 8:15pm for Hoopers. Do get in touch with Jennie if you want to join either Agility or Hoopers classes.


We are very pleased to have Angela Lucas from Hooperholics to come and take a Hoopers workshop on Sunday 30th August at Westfield Stables, Fenway, Steeple Aston, Oxon,  from 10:30am. This workshop is open to new beginners and those already doing Hoopers. The cost is 35 per dog. If you would like to join us please contact Jennie or Angela as soon as possible as numbers will be limited. Covid virus precautions will be observed along with social distancing.


The news from Arncott village hall is that it is to remain closed probably until September. With this in mind I have decided that I will embrace the internet and I will be starting 3 new 3 week online obedience courses using Zoom so you are able to either start training your new Puppy or continuing with your training. In these classes I will be following the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme so that you will be on your way for a happy obedience dog. There are several advantages to online training:

  •   in that you do not have to get in the car and drive to the venue so saving on your time and petrol. 
  • If your dog doesn't like other dogs, there won't be any for it to worry about and there will no other dogs to distract your dog during training and finally 
  • if you have just got a new puppy you can start training before it is allowed to meet up with other dogs. 
  • As I do not have any overhead costs I am able to offer these course at a reduced price.

The way Zoom works is that once you have signed up to this course and provided you have either use of a computer, smart phone or tablet that has video and a microphone, I will send you an invitation with a link and password to attend the meeting. It is very much like our usual training sessions in that you and I can see, speak, and hear each other, so I can demonstrate to you and then watch you all practicing with your dog and I am able to help when there is a need. This is a group course and there will be a maximum of 8 handlers and their dogs for all of these 3 week courses all costing 15 per dog. Payment will be due before the course starts.

  • The first of these Zoom courses will be for dogs less than 6 months of age = puppies. We will train to the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme, Puppy Foundation Scheme. Dates are: Friday 31st July, Friday 7th August and Friday 14th August all starting at 7 pm and will last for 40 minutes. The price for all 3 weeks is 15, payable before the course starts. You do need to pre-book this course.
  • The second Zoom course is the Basic Obedience course for dogs older than 6 month. This again will train to the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme, the Bronze Award. This will be a 40 minute session starting on Thursday 6th August the second one on Thursday 13th August and the last one on Thursday 20th August. All starting at 7pm. The price is again 15 per dog, payable before the course is due to start.
  • The third Zoom course is for those handlers and dogs who have already done some basic obedience. This will be a 40 minute session starting on Thursday 6th August the second one on Thursday 13th August and the last one on Thursday 20th August. All starting at 7pm. The price is again 15 per dog, payable before the course is due to start. The price is again 15 per dog, payable before the course is due to start. This class will train for the kennel Club Good Citizen Silver and Gold Award.
