WA Canine Section Annual Training Weekend- Donnybrook

Members of the Canine Section came together for a 3 day weekend of training in the south west of WA. This gave us all the opportunity to do some intensive training in a new environment whilst giving both handlers and dogs time for bonding and refining our search skills. 

We had a variety of training exercises including clearing and tracking through extensive paddocks, woodland and bushland. We also enjoyed searching in and around a large body of water. 

A very special thank you to Spearwood Valley Cottages for their excellent hospitality and to all who made this weekend possible. Thanks also to Bayswater Unit for lending us a 4WD and to our District Officer, Chris.
