SHOW BORDER COLLIE HERDING TEST

Midlands BCC WILL be running the herding test on October 5th - the day before our open show - allowing people to make a weekend of it. However for the test to go ahead we we will ideally need 4 dogs. Hopefully we are heading in the right direction to get that number. The venue is near Lutterworth.

We are fully aware and totally understand that some people are keen to 'have a go' at the test before paying the KC £125 so with this in mind we will also hopefully be running a training session in the morning for those who would like to do this - helping them decide if they feel ready to apply to the KC for the next test. The cost of this will be £25 per dog.

Spectators will be more than welcome.

Further details including times and details of catering will be available nearer the time.

If you are interested in the 'have a go' element of the day please contact the club secretary for further details. All entries for this will need to be made in advance.
