It is with regret that Cippenham (Slough) DTC have decided that we will no longer be holding an Obedience Show. We have informed the Kennel Club and relinquished our Ticket. For the last few years the club has struggled to cover the costs of the show. Venues in the South East are difficult to find and very expensive. Then there is the constant struggle to find judges, stewards etc etc. All in all it is time for us to call it a day.

The Kennel Club Board has now approved the amendments proposed as a result of this review.
Throughout the review, the working party was committed to ensuring the discipline’s future as an activity for all dogs and handlers, which is reflected in the changes.
