We all understand the importance of obedience training for a happy, well-adjusted dog. But have you considered obedience trialling as a sport you can share with your Golden?

GRCSA member Penny MacLaren is a successful trialler; she and Inca are now competing in the challenging Utility Class, but getting started may not be as hard as you think. Join us at this Fun Day in the Park, when Penny will tell us all about obedience trialling and share some training tips to help get you going in this rewarding pastime.

Afterwards, we'll share a barbecue lunch – we'll provide the sausages and condiments, sweets and treats; bring along whatever else you might need, including camp chairs, picnic rugs, water bowls etc.

Please note, tethering stakes cannot be used at this site. Dogs must be on lead during the workshop but there will be plenty of time for off-lead play afterwards.
In case of poor weather, plans may have to be changed. If in doubt, check
our FaceBook page or send a text to 0403159990 on the morning.
