Treat time

They know they have to sit to get a treat and not try taking another dog's treat. One naughty dog isn't sitting. He's one of mine!

Pandemic update

We have taken this pandemic seriously and stayed within government guidelines. at all times. Social distancing is not a problem with people and dogs in around half an acre and hand sanitiser has been provided. We lost time during lock downs but have been able to continue at all other times.

Whilst restrictions are easing I suggest we proceed sensibly. Social distancing was never a problem to us because we are outside in an open space. Far safer than going into a shop, riding on a bus or going to a pub. I reckon Moorlands is the safest place in Worcester!

 

It may look like a Summer day but it was Ist December! Tilly and Bruce are making great progress and enjoying the sunshine

Simple Jump Design

I have often been asked about making jumps to use in the garden. The design shown in the picture is simple but effective. I don't think I need to write instructions but a shopping and cutting list might be useful.

From Wickes:

2 lengths of 34mm x 34mm x 2.4m. From these cut 6 uprights 80cms

2 lengths of 18mm x 94mm x 2.4mm. From each cut 3 at 45cms and 3 at 35cms

1 x 3m length of 32mm waste pipe. Cut this to make 3 x 1 metre poles.

From Ebay:

100 3.5mm x 30mm stainless screws 

waterproof wood glue (Small)

20 plastic joint connector blocks

jump cups (I sometimes have these in stock)

Those plastic connector blocks give a good 3 point contact but also keep the wood off the ground when parked on the patio. Built well and treated or painted these will last for years. Though a more complex design the ones we use in training are now 11 years old!
