Jersey Assessment Day

by Jacky on May 20, 2015

Students braved the wet and cold weather to take part in the first assessment day to be held in Jersey.

This great photograph was sent to us by our Jersey instructor, Jo Laurens who is the only APDT registered dog trainer on the island.


The successful students taking part on the day were Alan Bouchard with Tala (Grade One Pass), Alan Le Maistre with Betty (Grade One Distinction) and Georgina Sawyer with Toba (Grade Two Distinction).

Congratulations to you all and good luck with your future training.
