KENNEL COUGH 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 clubs. www.bipdt.org.uk

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.

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.
