Social distancing must be observed. This will be a very full and social day. You will be responsible for your own
refreshments, food, water and towels for your dog.. Please bring all relevant training aids, hand sanitiser, gloves and
masks if pertinent.

Water Training Day – Cancelled
Working

Unfortunately the planned water training day has been cancelled due to ongoing advice from the Kennel Club and government.  We will be in touch directly with anyone who has paid, or expressed an interest.

Despite the current restrictions and difficulties we are all facing, the HPRGA Committee is continuing to work on our behalf of our members to develop a range of events and activities for the future when it is safe and we are able to do so.

If we can be of any assistance in the meantime, then please do contact us.

Keep well and stay safe.
