Items required for ALL training classes

Locations of Our Classes

OUTDOOR CLASS LOCATION

DIRECTIONS TO OUR TRAINING FIELD

(From Worcester Ketch roundabout)

Continue on the A38 through Kempsey village. The speed limit changes from 30mph to 50mph. Shortly after on your right you will pass ‘Hartlands Plant Centre’, continue for about ½ a mile until you come to the Edwards Volvo / Mazda / Kia car dealers. Turn left opposite the car dealers (signposted Kerswell Green / Croome / Birch Green)  As you turn off the main road, you will see a bungalow on the corner. Immediately after the bungalow on your right there is a large wooden gate with the Worcester Dogs Training banner on it which is the entrance to our field.

PARKING

Please drive through the gate into the field and park in the allocated parking area which is taped off for you (unless directed otherwise by one of our staff.) Occasionally our field can become waterlogged in the event of heavy rain and we may need you to park on the road so please exercise extra caution getting your dogs out of the car in those situations.
