We have secured use of an outside training field at Grove Farm Equestrian Centre, Milton Hill OX13 6AD. The training will take place entirely outside (whatever the weather). The venue can not permit additional attendees to observe, so the courses can only be attended by the handler and dog.
Abingdon Dog Training Club will be running The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Courses again from Sunday 11th April. Certificates and Rosettes will be awarded to everyone completing the course.
Attendees will be invited from our current waiting list. We are unlikely to be able to offer new applicants places before July 2021, due to the length of the current waiting list.
The courses run for 8 consecutive weeks on Sunday afternoons (excluding bank holidays). Maximum of 5 puppies can attend. One handler per puppy.
Normally Abingdon Dog Training Club is a not for profit membership club, but these courses do not include club membership due to the unknown timescale of returning to our normal classroom environment due to Covid-19.
Social distancing and current rules must be observed during your time at Grove Farm.
