The NEFRA working committee have recently held two of their ever popular training days.
The first was held on 31st July at Dearnford Lake near Whitchurch and was a Water Training Day, designed to improve our dogs work in the lake. Often made a little more challenging by wild swimmers enjoying their day out. Warmest thanks, as ever, go to our welcoming hosts Chas & Jane Bebbington and the staff at the lakeside cafe who put on a wonderful spread at lunchtime.
On the following weekend (6th August) saw another of our Training Days at Hesketh Bank, near Preston. This was our second day here this summer. Four groups were put through their paces by the class trainers, with special thanks to our guest trainer for the day Roz McIlroy and the hosts Ribble Bank Field Sports. On such a warm day the dogs were able to stay cool in the shade of trees.
These days are always very popular with the membership and are a perfect opportunity for new members to meet us and train in a relaxed atmosphere. Many thanks must go to all who attended. If you have access to land that might be suitable for group training, or possibly for assessment days or tests please do let our committee know.
