Dog Orienteering

Due to the popularity of the last child & dog orienteering event we now have a 2nd date for the diary. This is a great activity to help improve the bond and relationship between your child and your dog, as well as both having fun outdoors.

There are 2 events taking place.

Event 1: Individual dog orienteering (1 child and one dog). 2 categories to choose from, either level 1 or 2. Level 1 would suit a 5-9 year old and cost £7 and the level 2 would suit 9-15 year olds and cost £8.

Parents and children register with their dog and the timer starts, they then have 5/7 agility style stations to complete. They run through the finish line and we record the timer. Each child receives a medal and the 1st, 2nd, 3rd winner from each team wins a rosette.

Start times:

Level 1- 12.00pm

Level 2- 1.00pm

All children under 7 must run accompanied by an adult. Booking is essential for this activity and registration will close 1 week before the event.

To book your child/children please email;
