Our Venue


Our main training venue is at Grafham Water in the village of Perry only three miles from the A1 and five miles from the A14, in Cambridgeshire.  We are surrounded by 2,400 acres of beautiful countryside around Grafham Water Park. 

 

With the very kind support of Grafham Water Sailing Club we have a stunning lakeside outdoor training location with masses of adjacent parking and use of the club facilities where there is a bar and on-site catering at weekends and on Wednesday evenings.  The arena is fully fenced and enclosed.

 

We are near:

Important: you will need to clear up after your dog so please keep some bags in your pocket, bins are provided on-site.  The training area is mown grass and fully enclosed.  When outside of this area please do not allow dogs to urinate on any equipment, boat trailers etc.  Note: dogs are not allowed in the club house and must be under control at all times when on the sailing club grounds.

 

Please use a normal collar and lead of a suitable length, flexi extendable leads are not suitable for classes.

 

Bring a rested, hungry dog to classes and plenty of your dogs favourite treats and/or a toy (tuggy not squeaky for preference).  High value foods that are easily chewed and swallowed are ideal e.g. chicken, cocktail sausage pieces, cheese cut up to about the size of your little finger nail.  Avoid biscuit style treats for training as they can choke an excited active dog.  Depending on when you feed you may wish to reduce the dogs meal if this is within a few hours of the class start time but don't restrict a puppies normal diet.

 

Please walk your dog just before the class and give them a chance to relieve themselves outside of the training ring.
