Spaniel Training


What a wonderful evenings training with much thanks to our Chairman Tom Sheppard for letting us use his land.  Plus thanks to Tom, Ray and Paddy for training.  The sun shone and there was a great crowd of spaniels – 21 in number. 

We split into puppies, intermediate and advance and fun was had by all.
