Due to the upcoming championships which Finlay and Teddy have qualified for, I am having to move training on Sunday December 2nd to Saturday December 1st.  All classes will be at the same time. Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to seeing you then.IMG_2790


I am delighted to announce that Finlay (Hawksrigg Balgaire of Meonvalley) has also won a 2 Day Open qualifier earning his place at the Championships this year.  In addition he is now made up to FTCH (Field Trial Champion).   Really proud of both Finlay and Teddy and looking forward to the Championships.

I am delighted to say the Teddy has qualified for the IGL Championships.  He is having a wonderful year having won Crufts Best Field Trial Dog and now this. What a wonderful stamp of dog and so versatile with a loving nature.  So very proud of him.

Great Day at the Hampshire Country Sports Day

Smiles Dog Training had great fun running the Gundog Scurry for the Hampshire Country Sports Day in September. Always a popular show the scurry proving to be a strong attraction.

A big thank you to Dave and Jules for manning the Smiles Dog Training tent and being lovely as usual.

Another big thank you to all those who helped with the Scurry.  Jane, Wendy and Bubbles for being my right hand people and showing me the ropes. Also to Donna, Andrea, Nicky, Pamela, Alan, Kim, Ian, Debs, Denise and John for giving up your time, throwing and timing all the competitors.
