  • Dog Activity Weekend - On hold until further notice due to Covid Safety
      Dog Activity Weekend - 2 full days (timings TBC)

      Dogs and owners have a fun time, learning new things and making new dog and human friends. Anyone coming by themselves will be made most welcome and everyone will be put into a small group (max 6 dogs per group) to make sure that everyone feels welcomed and at home. There are many activities and everyone will be given a taste of each one.

      Activities (exact activities TBC but 2019 activities were as follows and our next weekend will be similar) -
      • Agility
      • Rally
      • Freestyle / Tricks
      • Scent work
      • Parkour
      • Mantrailing
      • Gun Dog • Flyball
      Would you like to join us? All we ask is that you and your dog are dog and people friendly. If your dog is not entirely happy around dogs or people please let us know so that we are able to advise you as to whether this is the right weekend for them. (Dogs with aggression problems will not cope and should not attend.)

      NOTE - On the Saturday evening we’ll be going for a walk and getting a takeaway and you’re really welcome to join us if you’d like to.

  • Mantrailing
    • Rayleigh, Essex - Mantrailing - On hold until further notice due to Covid Safety
      Rayleigh, Essex - Mantrailing Follow-On Course
      Instructor - Moira Oakford

      Our next training day with Moira will be planned once the Covid situation becomes a little more known (!) - if you're interested let us know and we'll let you know as soon as a date has been set (with only 5 handler places these days fill up very quickly.)

      Although Mantrailing is used to search for people in Europe and America it has been relatively unknown in the UK, although that all seems about to be changing! Come and find out about this new, exciting (and useful!) sport from a Mantrailing expert. Teach your dog to follow a specific scent through both rural and urban areas to search for missing people.

      Theory work will be indoors (dogs are welcome to wait safely in your car or wait indoors in a crate) and practical work will be outdoors, so please wear suitable clothing. Please bring an item of old clothing with your scent on it (eg. an old T-shirt.) Make sure you have worn it very recently (and not washed it!) and are happy for it to be put on the ground outside.

      Price - £65 per handler place / £30 per spectator place / EARLY BIRD - Because we are running this day almost at cost price we are unable to offer any discounts - sorry! - (max. 5 handler places)
