HBB – Training

Training Evenings 2023

This spring and summer you can train and test your dog on the prestigious and purpose build Rickneys Dog Training Ground in Bengeo, hosted by the Herts, Beds and Buck branch.

Several classes run in parallel, with handlers and dogs grouped into appropriate levels for Spaniel and Retriever. We welcome new handlers. Dogs require at least basic obedience: walk to heal, sit and stay and must be at least 6 months to attend.

Costs are £10 per session. No booking required, just show up. Enjoy some tea, coffee, cake and a chat after the class!

Contact Louise at louisebailey24@icloud.com with any questions.


The dates are also listed on the Events page where links to common calendar applications can be found.
