The WSSCSW would like to bring our members' attention to the event below.

We plan to host our own assessment tests and training days later in the year, please watch this space for dates and information.

In the meanwhile we can recommend this as a great opportunity for those interested in Field Working to bring on their puppies or to get more experience for their novice dogs and handlers.
