These workshops are for those handlers already competing in Obedience or with young dogs that are being brought on ready for the ring. Handler places not suitable for anyone just starting out, but you are more than welcome to come as a spectator and pickup some excellent tips - there will be lots of people to chat about obedience and help you with any questions.

Jan has been involved in competitive obedience for many years. She has had 5 Ticket dogs: OB CH CHAROUSKA KRISMOSS – Rookie. Rookie won 6 tickets and came 3rd at Crufts. River – OB. CH CROFTMIST RIVER of KRISMOSS – C.ex O.W, and now Enver, LONGWAVES ECLIPSE over KRISMOSS C.ex O.W.

River has had a glowing career, winning 14 Tickets and appearing at Crufts every year since his debut in 2012 . River qualified to work Ticket in just 9 days. He is now in retirement following an excellent career but he still comes to say hello sometimes – especially to our monthly sessions (see below).

Enver started out the 2018 season in class B and finishing by matching Rivers achievement of qualifying to work Ticket in just 4 shows. 

All Janet’s dogs are enthusiastic and stylish and are known for their happy attitude and willingness to work whilst also retaining their individually strong characters.
