Water Work Page


We run water rescue training days throughout the year.  These are a great opportunity to see your dog at work in the water.  All ages and abilities of bears (and people) are welcome - even very young dogs can get in the water and start some basic exercises. Water work does involve working as a team in the water so we recommend a wetsuit!! But even if you don't want to participate  it is great to just come along and see what it is all about and what these amazing dogs can do!

We aim to keep the Dogs' water rescue instinct alive with a range of tasks that they are taught to complete. We also teach some basic obedience work as dogs need to learn to respond to their owners’ instructions. All dogs work at their own pace and the water days are designed so that everyone has fun! 

You can view the water Test Rules at the bottom of this page, and dates of upcoming water days are included in the calendar of events.
