are fine but by law your dog must also have a collar with ID The Control
of Dogs Order act 1992 states that ‘any dog in a public place
should wear the name and address of the owner either inscribed on the
collar or a name plate or disc attached to it.
A normal clip on lead on a flat collar is the best. Puppy lead or training
lead. FLEXI LEADS are not suitable for training. A long training line
for distance training is useful.
Head collars can be used for obedience and for control between exercises,
but are not safe when doing agility or using a long training line.
Please ensure that your equipment is fitted securely and will not slip
over your dog’s head.
NO CHECK CHAINS, PRONG or SHOCK COLLARS ALLOWED!
TRAINING TREATS & TOYS
bring your dog’s favourite toy, balls on ropes, and tug types
are the best for motivating them. No squeaky ones please.
Treats? Part of your dog’s daily food ration,
Cocktail sausage, hot dog sausage, meaty strips, and cheese, lick treats
are ideal. Treats must be prepared in pea sized pieces to be easily
eaten. You will need a plentiful supply of these, easily accessible
in a container, Treat bag, bum bag or pocket, not plastic bags! No crumbly
treats please as crumbs on the floor will distract other dogs. Treats
are on sale if you run out. Please note; If your dog is on a special
diet then be advised by YOUR VET.

You must use sensible and suitable footwear such as Trainers, Stout
Shoes or Boots with non slip soles. The grass can get very slippy when
wet. Loose fitting shoes like sandals, heels of any kind, or similar
light footwear are totally unsuitable and could put you or others at
risk of personal injury.

EXPECTED OF ALL HANDLERS & THEIR DOGS
keep your dog under close control when working on and off lead.
do not allow your dogs to bark all the time. We lost our last venue
because of excessive barking. It is normal for some to bark when excited
or worried. However it is extremely unpleasant for others and the instructors
need to be heard. Please focus on your dog and don't let it bark continually.
Keeping your dog distracted with obedience, tricks and toys will help
this. Moving away so your dog cannot see the other dogs and keeping
in the car between exercises will also help. We can also help you so
please ask for our advice. Please don't take it personally if we ask
you to keep your dog as quite as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.

required by your instructor to be off-lead. or the exercise predicts
off lead. If you don't feel comfortable letting your dog off then please

punishment collars (e.g. citronella), water spray bottles, rattle cans

If there is a risk that your dog may bite another if it enters their

FAMILIES & CHILDREN
Families are always very welcome and children make great trainers! All
children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult. If there is
more than one of you then make sure you take turns in training your
dog. Giving multiple commands is very confusing for them. Mums &
Dads can of course help their children. Please remind your little ones
not to approach other dogs without asking. We have some toys on site
to keep the young ones amused.
