***  UPDATE *** Obedience 15th May – Classes On!   Some showers are forecast at some point this morning but we are going to keep classes on as planned  unless it gets worse over the morning, so please check posts or forecast before you set off.  This does include the extra class that I am taking at 12.30  (again, unless the heavens open!)    Keep doing the sun dance! 😊

Obedience 15th May

Obedience – 15th May.   I’m keeping an eye on the forecast for tomorrow as once again, the weekend weather is looking pretty poor☹  Showers seem to be forecast all day, and the same for Sunday, so will check again tonight – and may even wait till first thing tomorrow morning?   It seems to be showing showers and sunshine, so you never know…..  But we may have to cancel all scheduled classes (including the extra one I was going to do)  and possibly re-schedule for Weds evening like we did for the other groups?

Obedience Saturday 10th April – finally after months away, we’re back training! Yay! All people notified for their classes and the first groups are due to start tomorrow – so BIG welcome to you all. Please make sure you read the COVID guidelines we have issued directly to you, advising where the location of the training field is and where to park upon arrival. Your trainer will then book you in and we can hopefully have some safe, socially distanced fun! Wrap warm, looks dry and sunny, but a bit on the cool side 😉 P.S. Don’t forget to bring the dog! (Oh and lots of treats, toy and vaccination card if needed) See you there…..

Obedience April

Posted in Uncategorized on April 2, 2021 by gillc13

Obedience classes for April.  Over the last couple of days I have messaged or emailed all those members who had replied back to my earlier post about April classes resuming outdoors at Foxhills.  Class dates and times and the current COVID guidelines have been issued to all those who had confirmed that they still require a place.  If you haven’t already done so, can you please reply to my message–and if you no longer need a spot, it means we can open it up to someone on the waiting list.   If anyone feels I have missed them out, please contact me by message on here or email asap. 

Let’s hope the sun is shining and the wind stays away on the 10th & 17th 😊   Look forward to seeing you then.

Obedience Update March 2021.

Following on from the Governments recent announcement regarding the four-step roadmap out of lockdown, we are pleased to say we are planning to return to outdoor class training only from Saturday 10th April, TBC – providing no further restrictions are put in place.
It’s been a long Winter, which we hope you have all been keeping safe and well and we are looking forward to seeing you and your four legged pals once again! Please note, the classes we are planning to re-open are to those existing members only from the previous classes, plus the new members who had originally confirmed a place for January start in the new FB Puppy and Foundation Group. I will be posting in all our training groups over the next few days to get names and numbers so that we can see what, how and when we can offer classes once more. In the meantime, those groups will keep running.
For any new enquiries, please leave a message and we will get back to you asap to see if you want a place on the waiting list or if someone drops out of existing groups.
We thank you for your patience and will be posting again shortly.

Obedience – updates

Posted in Uncategorized on December 23, 2020 by gillc13
Hi All – as you probably guessed, we don’t yet know what’s going to happen in January due to the further ever changing recent announcements. I think the restrictions will still be very high which might make indoor training impossible and only limited outdoor training – if at all! January and February are not usually the kindest of months for weather either! 😉 Therefore, I will post any further updates regarding the scheduled new courses and our ongoing training, if you are interested, in the New Year. Please post any questions on our FB page or email – and we will try and get back to you over the Xmas period. In the meantime, we hope you all have a very safe, and as festive a Christmas as you can. Give your dogs a hug and treat from us! (at least we don’t have to wear a mask to do that! 😉 ) Take care, Gill and the team at SOATC.
