Obedience 19th Sept

Posted in Uncategorized on September 18, 2020 by gillc13
Obedience Classes 19th Sept. Looks like it’s going to be a nice dry sunny day, although please dress warm as the breeze can be quite strong and cool up on Foxhills Field. I’m kindly reminding people about the COVID guidelines issued regarding parking and keeping social distance. The early and late groups are fine, but there will be a crossover for the mid-morning classes, so please give each other space and your trainer will direct you to where you need to be. New members, please don’t forget your forms, vaccination cards etc if you haven’t already sent them over. Thanking you all in advance. See you tomorrow hopefully for some fun 

Update on Obedience Classes. Just to confirm that all classes will still be on as scheduled this weekend to all those only that have confirmed their place following the information I sent. All classes are now full and will rotate on alternate weekends as dates and times issued. Following on from the Governments announcement, we ask that everyone adheres to the social distancing and keep to the group that they have been allocated to. When you arrive at Foxhills Field car park, please park where allocated and your trainer will have set up a station to book into. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to PM/email me. Thank you – and please keep safe 😊

Obedience, new course updates. Apologies as I have very limited internet access where I am at the mo, struggling to get on line. So I will pm everyone individually as and when I can over next few days. However, in brief we can confirm that we will be offering classes on an alternate week basis. I.e. 1st groups will start on 12th sept, 2nd groups on 19th sept. Therefore a 6 week course will actually take 12 weeks to complete with everyone having 1 week on, 1 week off. This is the only way we can fit all classes in, both existing and those new ones that have definitely confirmed a place with me, due to current restrictions and guidelines. We will be training at our normal training field at Foxhills, plus Messingham Village Hall for some classes from 24th October. Most classes are on Saturday mornings, with the odd sunday morning where we can’t book Messingham. I will pm everyone their dates, times, venue and Covid guidelines individually. Thanks.

Obedience – new course updates

Posted in Uncategorized on August 14, 2020 by gillc13
Hi – Obedience – this is for all the ‘new’ members only that have been on a waiting list wanting to join in the next new Puppy or Foundation classes. We are planning new courses starting on either the 12th or 19th September. As it’s been a while since we’ve been able to take in new starters, I would just like to know numbers for those that are still interested in attending classes in person. If you do still want a place, can you please PM me asap so that I can organise new dates, venue, times and numbers in relation to current guidelines. We are already speaking to or have messaged those in the current classes, so this is just for those waiting to start. I will then go through the full list and contact all with possible class dates. Hope that is OK. If you can please bear with me if I don’t respond for a few days – there is a lot to get through! Many Thanks for your patience so far. Gill

UPDATE – Obedience classes have the Green light for Go! Yay! Restricted obedience classes will start to resume from Saturday 4th July, offering alternate weeks for groups with restricted numbers at a new temporary address. For those that have responded to my earlier post regarding a place, I will PM/email you over the next couple of days to confirm the dates, times and address of your particular class. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate all as yet – this may change over the next few weeks, but I will contact everyone to advise. I will also send each person the full COVID-19 information sheet and direction details. More to follow….. Thank you for your patience.

Obedience classes – UPDATE

Posted in Uncategorized on June 22, 2020 by gillc13

Obedience Members – we may have some exciting news this week. As you already know, classes have been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. As restrictions have started to ease, we are looking at ways to re-introduce classes in person. Safety is paramount and we have to ensure we work within Government guidelines about social distancing, but also the Kennel Clubs stance on allowing only 1 class of 6 maximum people at any one time in a training class. Furthermore, training can only take place on Private land, not Public which is also an issue where we train on Foxhills Field. However, the Committee can confirm that we are hoping to secure a lovely temporary private outdoor area near Scotter to resume some classes on a Saturday morning at the beginning of July (TBC). This is great news, however there will be a lot of restrictions. Due to the numbers we had already in our classes and those booked on to join in April and May, it will more than likely mean we have to alternate classes on a 2 weekly cycle to allow most of our members some time in a class. Also, it would mean only one person of the household can attend with their dog – max 5 in the class plus the trainer. Therefore, whilst we make final preparations, I need to obtain a confirmed list of those that would like to attend classes on the new area near Scotter during July and probably August. Those that are at high risk are advised not to attend, and obviously anyone with symptoms or have been around someone infected will NOT be allowed to attend. We will be doing a full risk assessment before classes resume. Furthermore, due to number restrictions, I will continue to upload videos and info sheets on the Puppy/Foundation Facebook page for ongoing training for those that don’t want or cannot attend in person.
Only for those wishing to attend, can you please email me on gill.charles13@btinternet.com this week – or comment on our Facebook page, your full name, dogs name, what class you were in or due to be in and the current age of your dog, so that we can compile a comprehensive list and arrange classes to suit. I do have the register and waiting list so that I can check people off there. This may take a few days to sort, so please don’t worry if you haven’t heard back from me direct – we will post again shortly with more details, and all members will be given full information regarding safety, social distancing, PPE, etc.
Please bear with us whilst we sort out all the details – your patience is appreciated! 😊

Re-opening of classes. We are due to have an on-line committee meeting on 10th June to discuss the way forward as restrictions ease. As our training area is on council property there are many things to consider and do before we can proceed to open up, and to err on the side of caution for health and safety reasons, it will probably be the end of June/beginning of July before we open up properly again – but still with a lot of restrictions. Please keep an eye on future posts for more information. In the meantime, we will continue to upload videos and information sheets on the Facebook page link to new pups and new adults that were due to start with us, or would like to start in the next couple of weeks. Thank you for your patience and Keep Safe
