LITTLE NIPPERS

This awesome arena act allows spectators to see Ridgeside group’s fantastic dogs do what comes naturally to them! In the arena they will race both over obstacles and at full speed chasing the electric lure. They offer a fast, action-packed demonstration with an informative and humorous commentary by Phill.

 

The public will have the chance to “have a go” with their own dogs – whatever their breed!
