Golden Valley Dog Training Club
Safety Reminder from the Committee
Please will Members keep their dogs on leads -
There have been several near incidents caused by loose dogs running free between their vehicles, the track and the Club field.
Also it is not fair on someone training in the Club field to have a loose dog interfering with their run.
In addition there have again been complaints about barking dogs, so please don't tie your dog up and let it bark non stop through the entire lesson ..... Members must consider the neighbours and remember how the noise travels.
Disposal of dog poo at the Club grounds
Please read the notice from the Committee regarding changes to the method of disposal of dog poo at the Club. Click on the sign to the right to see the notice.
Paying your Money! If you are paying anything to the Club other than the ‘Pay On The Day’ training fees, please would you put it in an envelope and clearly mark what it is for and who it is from. Pay On The Day fees should be given to your instructor before the class begins.

Annual General Meeting
At Kingstone Village Hall, Saturday 16th January, 2016, 7.30 pm
Make a note in your diary for this important event! It is much later than usual as more time is required to prepare the end of year accounts, particularly as our Summer Show was so close to the end of our financial year. However, we have permission from the Kennel Club to hold it then and there will be a full agenda of items for your attention, not least the popular presentation of awards for achievements within the Club (if you had an award last year, start thinking about parting with your treasure and returning it to the Club house in the next few weeks!).
There will be a letter and nomination forms coming out to everyone in November -

Our annual Christmas dog walk in the Forest of Dean. Starting at the car park 100yds or so from the Speech House (postcode of the house is GL16 7EL). The walk starts at 11am and lasts an hour or so, after which some of us meet at the Speech House for lunch (not compulsory!).
