Held on Sunday 04 September the club Fun Day was a great success. A big thank you goes out to Super Dog Indie, Trip Hazard and of course Lucy Heath for their patience while teaching our hounds.
Lucy demonstrated Heel Work to Music with both Indie and Trip Hazard and then it was down to our hounds to try. They all did extremely well on their first attempt.
Will we see Otterhounds competing in Heel Work to Music soon?
