Obedience 27th July – well from one extreme to another this week with the weather. At least it won’t be scorching hot – but it could be very very wet tomorrow. So please keep checking posts later today for confirmation about tomorrows classes – we may have to cancel if thunderstorms and heavy rain hit! Also don’t forget the Clubs Members show is next Saturday (3rd August) – where all members are very welcome, including family to come along and have some fun with their four legged friends. Will post more later – but if anyone has any tombola or raffle donations, please bring to the club thanks

Obedience – 20th July – UPDATE Please note, for this week the main training hut will be out of bounds for training due to a visitor on site all day. Therefore, ALL training will take place outdoors on the main field area. I am keeping a very close eye on the weather as it keeps forecasting showers over the next few days. I’m hoping they stay away for a few hours on Saturday morning, but please keep checking posts on here and on the Blog link of our Website for any last minute updates or cancellations. If the weather is bad, we may have to put training back by 1 week – but let’s hope not!  We have new puppy and adult classes due to start – and everyone needs to enrol into their new groups, so we will set up several tables spread over the first part of the field area to sort and arrange your groups. Trainers will advise you where to go etc – but we do ask everyone to give each other space – especially for the newcomers thank you.

Summer Members show

Posted in Uncategorized on July 17, 2019 by gillc13

Reminder – SOATC Fun Summer show on 3rd August for all members, starting at 10.30am, We are looking for any kind donations for the raffle prizes and tombola prizes if you have any – all proceeds go to our local charities. I have put a box in the hut on the counter if you bring anything up in the next couple of weeks – please let your trainer know. However, if you bring food of any kind, it would be best in the fridge or m/wave – to keep those pesky mice from coming inside and helping themselves thank you 🙂

Obedience 29th June…..due to the high temperatures forecast for tomorrow, particularly from late morning the following classes will be cancelled. The 11.30 puppy advanced class and the Gold groups at 11.30. Sorry!! The 9.30 pups, however, will be on as well as the new 10.30 pup class … we can use the hut if need be. As for the 10.30 Adult foundation, foundation advanced and Brz/silver groups at 10.30 …we are planning to do some work but will be a shorter session and use shaded areas as needed. Please feel free to use cool coats etc and we will have plenty of water bowls and baths out:) If anyone has a spare pop up dog pool we can borrow tomorrow….:) . If anything changes I’ll post in the morning. Please give the new pups the space they need on arrival thank you .
