Headley Ringcraft Club

About our Club


The Club was established 25 years ago with the key aim to make dog showing fun and successful - collectively for owners and their dogs.



Club Activities

Weekly Ringcraft Classes

Held inside or outside weather permitting - informative and fun mixed ability classes - from novice to experienced show handlers.

We are able to offer a variety of instructors, meaning that each week is different for you and your dog. This is important when training any dog for the show ring. We aim to replicate what to expect in the show ring through a variety of different exercises for you and your dog - ensuring classes are interesting and fun in a relaxed environment.
