Obedience 14th July 2018

Posted in Uncategorized on July 13, 2018 by gillc13

Obedience – 14th July – Cancelled:(. Well after a few cooler days this week, it looks like temperatures are set to rocket again over this weekend with plenty of sunshine and not much breeze. Therefore, we have decided not to train again ttomorrow in those kind of conditions, however the forecast is looking a bit cooler next week – we may even get rain – typical! So, we plan to have all new week 1 starts for both new pups and new adults next Saturday (21st) as well as the continuing groups that will effectively be week 4. I will post all the new dates this week and if anyone has any queries, just let us know and a trainer will get back to you. I apologise for the unplanned ‘summer break’ we have had (never before 3 weeks on a trot), but must consider the health and welfare of all the dogs – and their owners in those kind of conditions on a relatively open field. We are also looking for a suitable indoor venue (possibly Riddings Hall again) – for summer and winter when required, so if anyone knows of a large sized hall?? Please keep your dogs safe, cool and happy and look forward to getting back to normal next week 🙂

Obedience cancelled

Obedience 7th July – cancelled 😦 Sorry, but due to the ongoing heatwave we feel it would be irresponsible to expect dogs and their owners to come train in these hot/humid conditions on the field. Whilst we understand the willingness to train and socialise, we have to think of the dogs health and welfare, as well as their owners, and whilst we can offer some shade and the hut, the temperatures are still expected to be high for travelling and standing around in. I know my brain (or body) doesn’t function very well in this heat, so wouldn’t expect dogs or their owners to enjoy themselves as they should. We want all the dogs to be happy, comfortable and safe whilst training with us. We hope you all understand and plan to keep yourselves and your dogs as cool as possible. Please feel free to post some great ideas to keep dogs cool, entertained and happy! 🙂 I will post again shortly with all the new dates and am sure this heatwave can’t continue forever, but are also looking at other options. Thankyou.

Obedience 30th June – cancelled

Obedience – 30th June. Due to the continuing heatwave and tomorrows forecast being wall to wall sunshine we feel it is unfair and irresponsible for owners and dogs to stand on an open field with limited shade as the heat rises. Even the hut will be very stuffy. Therefore, all classes will be cancelled for tomorrow so that you can all find shade, paddling pools or icecreams instead 🙂 Hope you can keep practising and will see you next week paws crossed! (I can’t believe we are cancelling because it’s too hot! 😉 )
