Arena Requirements
In order to carry out a safe and effective display we require a minimum amount of space, but prefer to have
more if possible. Access is required for one car and the equipment trailer to a point within, or immediately
adjacent to, the arena. Our preference is for the trailer and perhaps the towing vehicle to remain within, and
across one end of, the arena for the duration of the display or until the end of arena activities. Our displays
are best viewed from both sides and across the end opposite to our trailer. Some of the equipment is rather
heavy and we prefer to minimise the distance it is carried. On site parking spaces will also be needed for up
to 12 team members’ vehicles, a position in the shade would be appreciated if at all possible.
                                                                        The minimum arena dimensions
                                                                        are 45 m X 25 m (150 ft X 80 ft)
                                                                        The trailer and towing vehicle are
                                                                        8.3 metres long, 1.7 m wide &
                                                                        2.36 m high.
                                                                        If there is a height barrier at the
                                                                        venue, the trailer needs sufficient
                                                                        clearance.
Our displays are of 30 minutes duration and we need around 10 minutes before our display to set up
the same to break down after. If doing two displays on any day we prefer to be able to stow our
equipment around the edges of the arena if possible.

The arena should have a reasonably smooth grass surface and have barriers around or be roped-off to
keep the audience clear of the dogs and handlers, who will be moving rather quickly at certain times
during the routine. We do not want any accidents to dogs, handlers or members of the public!

Commentary
We provide a lively and entertaining commentary with our displays and can supply our own portable PA
system if required. If your event has PA covering the venue it would be preferable for us to use that. If
there is a radio microphone (or a fixed mike at a suitable vantage point – our commentator needs to see
the whole arena) so much the better. We also request that, as much asis possible, any other noises, such
as loud music or sudden sharp noises, be constrained for the duration of the display(s).

Insurance & Safety
The team has public liability insurance, a copy of which along with our Risk Assessment will be available for
event organisers. Copies of these documents will always accompany the equipment trailer. The team will
have with them at events both First Aid and Hygiene Kits as well as Fire Extinguishers (Water type) and
additional water in containers for the prevention of fire spreading to grass from fire jumps. All of the team
handlers carry “poo bags” to clean up should there be any “accidents”.

Hi firstly I’d like to say how much I enjoyed your display in Lowestoft today.

Thank you all so much for a SPLENDID display at our fete, it was much enjoyed by all!!

Many thanks for your most entertaining and enjoyable performance at our fete.

I hope this date is still clear in your diary as you have been a very popular show in the main ring.

Please pass on our thanks to your team and the dogs it was a joy to watch.
Hope to see you again next year.

We so much enjoyed your display this year we would love to invite you again!
Our Fete next year will be on Saturday 3rd July, please can we book you?

We certainly had a lot of good reports from last year and everyone enjoyed the show.

After your very successful appearance at this year's rally we would like to invite your team back again next
year.

We had a great time watching the display you must all work very hard to get to this standard.

The public and all competitors so enjoy your displays and all are impressed at the standard of training to get
your dogs to complete all their events.

Doubtless one of our 'star turns' last year, and I know you will be again this year

You supplied us last year with a very entertaining and much liked show, we are in the process of organising
the date of our village fete for this year, and would like you to attend again.

We are all really looking forward to seeing the show.

My team was impressed by your shows and we'd love to be able to work with you again given the
opportunity.

Thought your show at Stowmarket Carnival yesterday was great.

We also watched the displays e.g., The Lowestoft Dog Agility – these were brilliant!

Thank you for putting on such a good display. It was really enjoyable. The comments from the public were
extremely positive.

Many thanks for a very successful contribution - everyone I spoke to loved "the dogs".

I and the Rally Committee would be delighted for you to join us again on both days of next year's rally

"We are looking forward to seeing you again at Norfolk in August. Well done over the weekend and what a
fantastic display you put on."

Congratulations on a great display today in Kessingland! We really enjoyed it, the dogs are adorable.

"Thank you for another great display ……………. always a crowd pleaser!"

Great show again this year - we'd expect no less!!!! Huge thanks to all of you.
