Our Trainers

 

KCGDS
Examiner
Our Trainers are all drawn from our membership and have either achieved or are working towards
their KC Good Citizen Gold Award. Trainers attend professionally run courses as funds permit and often at their own expense. Although Kennel Club Listed for the KCGCDS, we are not currently listed or affiliated with any official body for FUN agility training. All trainers attend the mandatory Animal Aiders Course and suitable Instructors Course.
Trainers listed in no particular order although KCGDS Examiners do appear first.
