Crufts (again)

This year we have an agility team going to Crufts - large this year - 5th March.

A minibus will be organised - details when finalised

Winter training times

Agility winter times = Beginners Sunday 12.30 to 13.30 and competitors 13.45 to 15.00

Mission Statement


Our club goals are to provide quality training for dog and handler that is affordable and in a friendly environment.  The club ethics are to provide training in obedience and agility for all beginner and agility competitor handlers (all grades), the training is based on positive reinforcement, in a manner that is fun for all.  In return the club requires help from members and asks that all members be ‘active members’.

The club is run by a committee of volunteers and is greatly assisted by other contributors.  BCDTC is most successful when members actively support the club.  Being an active member can mean a variety of things, but typically the club requires help with agility training (taking part and help with equipment), also with our agility show (including setting up and clearing away) and with the maintenance of club equipment.


Summer Training times

Official club training has now finished for Saturdays (busy with shows).  We will now train Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
