    Introduction to competitive obedience training day

    This day is aimed at those that have never competed in obedience before. Learn about all the exercises for the special pre-beginners class.
    The aim is for you to end up with a good idea of what the class involves, where they are being held, how to enter, what to do on the day, what the (average) judge is looking for, ideas for training, to have enjoyed yourselves, for your dogs to have enjoyed themselves, and that next year you have a go at least one show :D

    Karen Smith (owner of Chaos and Havoc) will be teaching you.

    Saturday 23rd April. 10am - 4pm

    Charles Morris hall
    Tyttenhanger
    St Albans
    Hertfordshire
    AL4 0RN
    Charles Morris Hall, Tyttenhanger Green

    £12 per person. Tea and coffee will be provided but bring your own lunch.
    You can work as many dogs as you want.

    Any club that runs competitive obedience classes (Pre-Beginners to Ch Class C) would offer guidance for the Special Pre-Beginners Class.

    Have a look at the Obedience UK Forum. They list all clubs and private groups in the UK.

    One of my pupils won the final at Crufts 4 or 5 years ago with a three-legged collie.
