Sunday’s Jack Russel Club training day was all for fun and experience, says Chrissie and Gianni Nolan-Grando.

The couple, and club volunteers, welcomed dogs of all sizes for a series of events, such as lure chasing, tunnel training and rodent-working on Sunday in the Parksville Community Park. Next month, they return to hold a competition. For details, visit www.vijrtc.com.
