Working Assessments

Depending on the response from members the Society is planning to organise Working Assessments for our dogs.  These assessments will give you a grade for the working ability of your dog without the need to take part in competition.  It will also give you a guide to the areas you and your dog need to work on to improve your handling and your dog's working performance.

Dates and venues will depend on the responses from members.  Please register your interest with Debbie Zurick.
