29th Feb

Obedience 29th March Update for current classes Due to the weather forecast again this weekend (yet another storm coming in!), we are having to modify the current classes (and delay the start of the new courses until 7th March as my previous post).

Current Puppy 09.30 week 6 – will be on as normal, but probably in the hut

Current Foundation 10.30 week 6 – will be on as normal, but probably in the hut

Current Puppy Advanced 11.30 week 6 – will be on as normal, but probably in the hut **

Foundation Advanced (Marie’s group) will be on – BUT, we will have to move that time to 12.30 start so that we can make use of the hut if needed. Can you please confirm if you can all make that time?

Bronze/Silver and Gold groups – are more than likely to be cancelled yet again unfortunately. We will see how strong the winds are tomorrow to see if it is feasible to do any outdoor training. We cannot offer Sunday as an option this week either – sorry. If we have to cancel yours, you will get a reduction on the fees for the next 6 week block if that’s OK.

Sorry for this disruption yet again – Februarys weather has played more havoc than normal, but at least we are better off than some parts of the country 😦 🙁

Obedience Sunday update

Posted in Uncategorized on February 22, 2020 by gillc13

Obedience – looks like the Sunday option is also off due to weather forecast – heavy rain 😦 So that also means we have to put back the start of new course date to 7th March…. sorry New members! I will post again about the new dates/details for current course and contact new members next week. Let’s hope the weather starts to improve……

Update 22nd Feb

Posted in Uncategorized on February 21, 2020 by gillc13

UPDATE – All Saturday classes are cancelled due to weather forecast. I will advise on the possibility of some Sunday classes tomorrow – sorry! 😦 Obedience – weather update. It seems to be getting worse every time I look at it – Sunday as well!! We may cancel all classes this week as we could really do with doing some outside work. That would mean the new courses due to start on 29th Feb would be put back by 1 week 😦 I will post later on today with final decision. 3 storms over 3 weekends – crazy! 😦

Obedience 22nd Feb

Posted in Uncategorized on February 20, 2020 by gillc13

Obedience 22nd Feb – we are keeping a close eye on the forecast for this week, It’s supposed to be dry, but windy yet again. So it will depend on the wind strength, as all classes would have to be outside on the field, due to the hut being in use by our doggy chiropractor. I will keep you all posted tomorrow – but if it looks too strong, I may suggest that we take a couple of classes on Sunday morning instead. These would be the Puppy 9.30 group, my beginnners Foundation 10.30 group and possibly the Foundation Adv and Brz/Silver. Just checking on trainer availability. Would this be suitable to anyone in those classes so that we don’t lose another week? We would start half hour later than normal though so you could have a lie in:)  Hopefully we can do Saturday, but just looking at Plan B! Can you let us know if Sunday would be good for all if we had to? Thanks

Obedience 15th Update

To confirm we will only have the Puppy class at 09.30am, my Foundation Class at 10.30am and the Puppy Advanced class at 11.30am tomorrow. All other groups will be cancelled unfortunately due to the forecast of gusty winds with rain ☹ For the puppy and Foundation class, please bring along your grooming brush as we will have plenty to keep us occupied inside😊 Faye will confirm the Puppy Advanced group details. For those attending please check posts again in the morning in case anything changes. Thank you.

Obedience 15th Feb – Weather looking bad again for tomorrow, so will most likely cancel all outdoor classes (Foundation Adv, Bronze/Silver & Gold) – and will advise on the other 3 (Puppy, Foundation & Puppy Advanced). Hut is available for some training, but keeping an eye out on wind strength. Will post later with updates. Our spaniels ears haven’t stopped flapping all week!! 😉
