Trialling class 1pm-2pm

The Trialling Class is open only to those dogs wishing to trial in the future, or dogs with previous trialling experience.


Dogs who have obtained a pass in the obedience ring are automatically admitted to this class. No lures are used in the trialling class and there are difficult requirements to gain entry, including stable sit and down stays, stand for examination and enthusiastic heeling.


Instructors of this class have trialling success and hence know the correct standards required, whilst supporting and advising potential trialists.
