VENUE: Misterton Christian Centre, Cornley Road, Misterton, DN10 4AZ. GOOGLE MAP (known as Yorkshire Christian Camp on Google) DOWNLOAD Directions PDF

PARKING: Parking is in the training field. If leaving your dogs in the car between training, please ensure they are contained safely within a crate or tethered to enable adequate ventilation by leaving doors and windows open.

EXERCISING & TOILETING YOUR DOG: Please keep your dogs under close control. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR DOG TO PEE ON THE EQUIPMENT! Encourage toileting away from the training areas. Please bring poo bags and clean up after your dog and dispose of in the bin provided or take home. There is a lovely walk down Debdhill Bridleway opposite the entrance to the field. Your dog is allowed on lead to visit the toilet block and along the top of the large field towards the entrance gate. There is a no dog policy in place on the camping/football field.

Please remember to pick up. SIT Dog Training promotes responsible dog ownership.

WHAT TRAINING GEAR DO I NEED FOR MY DOG?
Harnesses 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. (We have leads for sale) 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 COLLARS ALLOWED!

TRAINING TREATS & TOYS Please 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.

Sue also welcomes Clicker training. Clickers are on sale in our shop.

WHAT TRAINING GEAR DO I WEAR? Make sure you wear suitable comfy clothing for outdoors. Layers are best. 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.
We will train in most weathers. If you can get there we will train. We have shelter and your cars will be close by if the weather turns bad. We will make every effort to contact you if there are any changes to training. Check your emails, texts, facebook and our website pages for any cancellations. If in doubt contact Sue.

AGILITY EQUIPMENT: NOT TO BE USED UNSUPERVISED! ADUSTMENTS TO THE EQUIPMENT SHOULD ONLY BE MADE WITH FULL CONSENT OF THE INSTRUCTOR. Children are always welcome, but please make sure they do not climb on the equipment. PUPPIES UP TO 1 YEAR ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE LARGE AGILITY EQUIPMENT. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW DOGS TO PEE ON THE EQUIPMENT.

CANCELLATIONS: Training maybe cancelled due to illness, weather conditions, holidays or competitions & When the centre holds it's youth camps. You will receive good warning in advance wherever possible.
Please check on SIT Dog Training website or facebook for cancellations, also make sure you have supplied your email address and mobile number and keep them updated. Sue will email & text you. If in doubt, please contact Sue on the morning of training to make sure.

CONDUCT EXPECTED OF ALL HANDLERS & THEIR DOGS:
Please keep your dog under close control when working on and off lead.

Please 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 dog training 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 personnally if we ask you to keep your dog as quite as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.

All dogs must be kept on-lead at all times, except when required by your instructor to be off-lead. or the excercise predicts off lead.If you don't feel comfortable letting your dog off then please say.

Harsh handling of dogs, smacking, kicking, check/choke chains, and the various punishment collars (e.g. citronella), water spray bottles, rattle cans are not permitted.

Please allow sufficient space between dogs in class so as not to provoke any unwanted aggression.
Do not allow your dog to stare into other dogs eyes.
If there is a risk that your dog may bite another if it enters their space, then you may be asked to muzzle your dog with a Baskerville type muzzle in between exercises.

Extremely aggressive dogs will not be allowed at group sessions.

Do not treat other people’s dogs without their permission.
Ask before handling and approaching other people’s dogs.

Some dogs do not cope well in group situations. If it is decided that the group is not for your dog then you will be offered private lessons.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN DOGS BEHAVIOUR. SHOULD YOU ALLOW YOU’RE DOG TO INVADE ANOTHER DOGS SPACE HE/SHE MAY GET BITTEN AS THE DOG ON THE LEAD MAY FEEL THREATENED AND SIT DOG TRAINING WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE.

VACCINATION & HEALTH: Please make sure that your dog is on a regular vaccination program and micro chipped. You may be asked to show proof of this. We also accept Titer testing.
If your dog is unwell or has kennel cough/runny nose, please inform Sue and stay away from training until clear. If you feel unwell then also consider staying away as partaking in strenuous exercise is not advisable when your body is coping with infection.
NO BITCHES IN SEASON ALLOWED to attend classes. They must be clear for at least 5 days before returning.

REFRESHMENTS: We have hot & cold drinks available, just a small donation is required. You are welcome to bring pack ups if you are staying all day. Cake donations are always welcome.

TOILETS: Yes

SMOKING: No smoking other than within your vehicle or off the site. Please extinguish within your vehicle as the dry grass creates a fire risk.

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.

PAYMENT: Weekly Group sessions by cash PAYGO. To be paid at the beginning of the session when signing in.
Please see Payment Details above.
