MOVING ON: Clarence Dog Sports is taking its dog agility and show training to the Alumy Creek Reserve after seven years at the Grafton Greyhound Track.

AFTER a seven-year association, the Clarence Dog Sports group and the Grafton Greyhound Club are about to part ways.

The dog training group has just signed a 10-year lease with Alumy Creek School Reserve, on the Lawrence Rd on the outskirts of Grafton.

Regular trainer with the group Mandy Sansom said the increased number of events at the greyhound track encouraged her group to look for a new place to operate.

"The Alumy Creek Reserve is a beautiful place to train the dogs," she said. "There is plenty of shade and open space."

Ms Sansom said the group would need to do some work at the site.

"Our lease with the Alumy Creek Reserve Trust has now been signed for 10 years, so we plan to put some work in and set up a shed for our gear, do some dog-proof fencing along the boundaries," she said.

"We are on the lookout for a shed that is keeping with the heritage values of Alumy Creek Reserve."

The group concentrates on agility training and show training. It attracts dog owners and trainers from Lismore and Coffs Harbour to its meetings.

Ms Sansom said the group would be able to grow and run larger shows and agility trials at the new venue.
