November Conference and Awards of Instructor Certificates

The first annual conference for Agility1st members took place on Sunday 17th November with over 20 people in attendance.

The day started with an excellent practical session run by our guest Angela White who is a well known dog trainer, speaker and behavioural expert. She is also a board member with the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors scheme.

The afternoon sessions included practical assessments for our instructors Karen White, Sue Bartley, Karen Colls and David Morrisson (more on this in another news item).

Our pilot scheme members were all presented with their Instructor Certificates at the close of the day. Recipients of awards of Instructor certificates were; Yvonne Croxford, Dee Dakin, Karen Laker, Fifo Martin, Ruth MacGill and Trevor Shelswell.

Special thanks goes Nottingham Trent University for hosting the day and Dr Jackie Boyd for helping with this and to Dee Dakin who organised the day for us and for keeping Mark and Steve out of trouble!
