Young Handler’s Activity Weekend to Return to Scotland

The Scottish Kennel Club are delighted to announce they are once again joining forces with the Young Kennel Club to bring a young handlers training and activity weekend to Scotland.

Taking place during school summer holiday time the young people will have the opportunity to spend time with their four-legged friends, having fun, making new friends, learning new skills and training in different disciplines.

It promises to be an exciting, action packed weekend with opportunities to train in handling; obedience; agility; heelwork-to-music; flyball and rally, along with educational workshops covering topics in animal health, care and well being. The young people will also take part in a social programme which will incorporate team-work and confidence building exercises.

Speaking about the event SKC Juniors Co-ordinator Lisa Moir said: “Following the success of the event held in 2017, I am thrilled that we’ve been given the go-ahead for the second year. Events such as this are crucial in helping to keep young people interested and engaged in dog sports, as well as helping to shape them as responsible dog owners. I’m looking forward to working with the young people and their families to ensure the growth and success of this event for future generations.”

The event, open to members of the YKC and SKC Juniors, will take place from Friday 20th July – Sunday 22nd July at Errol Airfield in Perthshire, where onsite camping facilities will be available. Booking is not yet live, but will soon be available via the YKC website
