As usual at this time of year
the dreaded Kennel Cough is around again. Cases reported
around Felpham Beach (towards Middleton) area and King
George V playing Field. This was reported earlier in the
week on Facebook so it is probably elsewhere. Please be
vigilant and if your dog shows signs of a cough please DO
NOT bring it to club, but contact your Vet by phone and ask
them for instructions, Do not just take your Dog to the Vet
without prior contact and do not let it socialise with other
Dogs, K.C. is highly contageous.
We would like to congratulate
Alison Formaggia on becoming a member of the British
Institute of Professional Trainers.
Formed In 1974, the Institutes’ brief is to improve
the conditions of the professional working dog and the field
of pet dog training. The Institute also aims to
to raise the standard of instruction in local dog-training
At long last, there appears to
be some progress on treating this dreadful disease. The
Royal Veterinary College have announced that they have
discovered similarities between CRGV and a rare but serious
disease in Humans. A plasma exchange treatment for Dogs has
been developed, which effectively filters the affected dogs
blood and removes toxic substances including that which
causes CRVG. Whilst it is early days and only a third of
those dogs treated survivied, it is an improvement on
virtually no dogs surviving. Needles to say the cause of it
is still a mystery.
WHY WE ARE THE CHEAPEST DOG TRAINING
We get numerous telephone calls
from people wishing to train their dogs with us and when
told the fees they are astonished and we usually get "That's
cheap!" . We have run Bognor Regis & District Dog
Training Club for over fifty years on a non-profit making
basis. We need to cover the cost of running the club
which includes the ever increasing cost of hiring the hall
for two evenings a week
We are definitely NOT inferior
to the other more expensive Dog training clubs in the area.
All of our ten Trainers are fully qualified with the
majority having been Trainers for many years and all are
unpaid Volunteers. We cater not only for the "pet"
market, but also for people who wish to enter their dogs for
competition or for the show ring. Our three yearly
terms are between twelve and fourteen weeks (depending on
where Easter falls each Spring). For this our fees
remain at £22.50 per term for each dog. In addition, we
charge £3.00 a year club subscription for each club member.
END OF TERM: Congratulations to
everyone that passed their End of Term Assessment
