North East Dog Lovers Invited To Young Kennel Club Spring Weekend

Young dog lovers in the North East are being given a unique opportunity to boost their canine training skills and attend a fun dog training weekend organised by the Young Kennel Club (YKC) in Wearside.

Young people aged 6-24 and their dogs are invited to the YKC Spring Weekend being held at The Dog House in Cold Hesledon near Seaham on 26th-27thApril to try out a range of dog activities and they can come along for just one day or for the full weekend.

Each day of the Spring Weekend (from 9.30am - 4.00pm) will include training sessions in handling, agility, obedience or flyball under the direction of an experienced trainer. There will also be fun team activities that will give young attendees the chance to make new friends who share the same interests.

At last year's inaugural event  more than 100 young dog lovers came together at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire for the first ever YKC Spring Weekend event.

Gerald King, Chairman of the Young Kennel Club said: "Our YKC training weekends are very popular, as they are a fantastic way for young people, whether or not they are a member of the YKC, to try out new dog activities and perfect their skills.

"The second YKC Spring Weekend follows the fantastic success of last year's event. The feedback we had from both the children and parents was very positive and we look forward to the weekend in Seaham."

The YKC is open to all young people aged from 6-24 years who enjoy any dog related activities. Admission for the weekend is £20 per day, per dog with admission free for accompanying adults and spectators. To find out more about the Young Kennel Club and the event visit
