Essential Information

Dogs must be fully inoculated, regularly wormed and in good health.

Handlers should be  in good health, or have advised the trainer of any health issues which may affect training, so that resonable adjustments can be made.

Handlers will care for their  own safety by wearing the appropriate clothing and footwear for the running surfaces and weather.

Handlers  ensure any dog defecation or urination is cleaned as necessary and disinfected straight away using the disinfectant provided.

Everyone is expected to help put out and put away equipment, every session. If you are unable to carry equipment, for whatever reason, please inform Mechelle before you start your course.
