We cannot recommend this course too highly, please contact Martin Proctor at http://www.pro-dogs.co.uk/about.html. June saw the 3rd of our puppy classes graduate with 10 puppies and owners gaining their certificates. The month also saw some of our members attend their first competitive obedience competition entering both the Introductory and Pre-Beginner classes at the South Eastern Open Obedience Show held in Horsham. Then later in the month a member also attended the Dog Training Club Bracknell Open Obedience Show gaining a creditable 3rd in Pre-beginners.
Our second puppy group for the year also saw our 10 puppies all pass their puppy foundation. It was also nice to see so many of the class progress to the intermediate class. 10 members attended the first of 2 sessions on canine first aid, run by Martin Proctor of Prodogs. This was a fantastic event in which owners were able to learn about the ABCs of canine first aid response.

One of our members needed to use the emergency stop command to prevent her dog from landing on barbed wire.
The Canine first aid course put into practice. One of our members who attended the course, was able to put in to practice their new knowledge to help their dog who had swallowed some poisoning. Quick thinking and informing the vet before arriving ensured that the antidote was available quickly to treat the dog.
