Crates in class:
Crates are mandatory in all classes at all levels "No Crate, No Train" policy."
When participating in a class that has a crate requirement, we would like to outline the 3 actions for class participants:
1. Actively working (Handler is actively working their dog under the guidance/direction of the instructor)
2. Actively engaged (handler is working with the dog on lead away from the actively working dogs, under direction from their instructor).
3. Crated - Dog is crated for some downtime, handlers can gather their thoughts, chat, contemplate/reflect or walk the course, organise their treats/toys minus the distraction of the dog.
Used effectively crates can be a value add to all training programs
If the temperature is 32+deg at 4.30 pm training maybe cancelled or postpone starting time slightly. A notification will be posted on Clubs FB Page. The temperature will be taken from the Bureau of Meteorology website, using the Ballam Park observations (or the Moorabbin Airport observations if the Ballam Park information is not available).
