PRE - SHOW info ~
Sunday , July 14th 2019 will see us at probably our biggest event of the year , our Companion Dog Show. This is what the bulk of the money we give to charity at the end of the year comes from. Things are pretty much in hand with a week to go. We have all our judges and stewards, we have the licence , rosettes and trophies are ready for collection and Sue is busy working on the necessary paperwork that makes the Show run smoothly.
If any body still wants to sponsor a class for prizes or trophies( suggested min. £5) then there are still a number unsponsored. Dave is always looking for tombola/raffle prizes or anything else you think he might be able to sell. Any cakes , home made or shop bought can be brought along to the Show to be sold with teas and coffees . The biggest help needed always is for setting up first thing Sue will open the gates at 0900 and clearing up and packing away at the end. If you have nothing else to do , come along to the Show enter a few classes , buy a burger or hot dog , have a go on the tombola and you have contributed to the success of the Show.
For those of you who haven't been before , you can bring your dog along at any age but they must be 6 months to enter. We have 5 pedigree classes , 13 novelty classes and 4 obedience classes , plus a fastest recall between 1400 and 1500.
Thank you from Hurst Show and Country Fayre :
We hope you have recovered from a long hot weekend! You definitely had
the best day to join us!
We wanted to write and thank you for one again providing us with a
great agility display and for letting the visitors have a go too, you
are one of the staples of the show! It was lovely to see the crowd you
had! Please pass on our thanks to all of those that come to join you
to do the display.
Despite the crazy temperatures on Saturday we think we will have had
another great year in terns of visitors and (fingers crossed) money
raised for local good causes. Without all our attractions we would not
have the visitors that we do... .. so thank you again!
The show will be the last weekend of June again so the 27th and 28th
June 2020... please pop the date in your diary! :-)

We are looking for stooge dogs again for the Instructors exam , this Sunday March 18th. We need the people who have been before as they know what they are doing. We are preferably looking for Beg/Novice dogs with retrieve. If dogs could be there for 0930 that will be great. Exams will go on until 1330 when a buffet lunch will be provided. Thank you
please contact Sue or Dave for further details

Weather Disruption ~ training update 01/03/2018
Unfortunately we have decided , due to the snow this morning and a lot more promised later , to cancel tonight's training and progress tests.
The plan is to move every thing by one week. Pre Beginner and Beginner Progress will now be on 8th March and Novice on 15th March. Puppy class will proceed as normal on these dates.
Sorry for the disruption but it is out of our control.
