Bournemouth dog training club is barking mad at hall snub

A DOG training group has been left fuming after being turfed out of its home with just a few days notice.

The team behind Fun 4 Dogs, which has been running for around four years at Tuckton Social Club in Tuckton Road, Bournemouth, said they have been told that they will not be able to use the new hall nearby because the committee running it fears the oak floor will be damaged.

The old hall is due to be demolished shortly. It has left Christine Walton and Nicky Smith, who run the group, desperately trying to find new premises to continue with their courses.

The chairman of Tuckton Social Club, John May, said it was a decision that had not been taken lightly.

Christine, however, said: “Before Christmas we had a letter to say we were moving over and we thought there was no problem whatsoever.

“I had a phone call on New Year’s Eve in the morning to say they didn’t want us to have the hall at all. I said we would guarantee that we would not damage the floor and if it is we will pay for it because I am 100 per cent certain due to the matting we use that it will not happen.

“I think we’re being victimised because it’s dogs. It’s been hard to sort somewhere else out – we have three more sessions to go on this course. I’ve tried everywhere and a lot of the halls and church halls are full.”

The group is appealing to anyone that can help them.

Nicky added: “They haven’t spoken to us face-to-face. We pay three months in advance, so they should have given us three months’ notice.”

John May, chairman of Tuckton Social Club, said the decision came after a meeting with the new hall’s builders last week.

“One of the questions we asked was does the floor scratch, because we have two dog groups; we were told it would.

“This decision hasn’t been taken lightly. We all love dogs, but we have an expensive oak floor put down for dancing and activities.

“They haven’t paid up front for the hire of the hall, so we don’t have to give them notice, although we would have liked to have done. We will try to keep them in the old hall for a few more days if we can. We will do anything we can to help them.”

If anyone has a lock-up, barn, workshop, outhouse, hall or industrial unit the group can use for one night and one afternoon a week, they should contact Christine on 07719 605705.

At last!
Someone realises that dogs dont belong indoors.
They are animals and oak floorboards and animals just dont mix.
The only other sensible bit in the whole sorry saga is that the people are looking for a barn, thats where animals belong.
I wish them luck, they deserve it.

The floor is'nt going to last long in a public building if it can be damaged by a few dog's claws!. A floor in a pubic building should be hardwearing enough to withstand all kinds of footwear, including high heels, wheelchairs and walking aids, table and chair legs, and of course, guide dogs, if not, an unsuitabe material has been used.

There you go.
A few home truths and the daggers come out.
Why pray should I be in a barn?
Because if you know anything about timber you would realise that claws, (please retract yours), are not the issue here. The problem is that a heap of uncontrolled mutts (that is why they go to trainingg school) have accidents and STAIN oak floors.
That is why animals(that includes dogs) should be left outside.
I am sure that you are not a dog so why would you infer that I wear my wifes shoes. Unless you own a female dog (what are they called?).

They've already said they cover the floor anyway. Dog lot say they pay in advance. Hall owners say they don't. Well, someone is lying!

You'll probably find the hall owners have found someone willing to pay more than the dog lot, so have come up with a handy excuse to get shot of them. Perhaps the place is run a a bunch of mad cat ladies?

Also, they say they had two dog groups in the old hall. So what sort of idiot gets the floor put in the new one without making sure it's hard wearing, or at least finding out what it's like slightly earlier than a few days before the move? Sounds like malice or incompetence to me.

If the new floor was to be covered with matting during dog training (as stated in the article) than I can't see how it would be damaged.

And the group has either paid in advance, or it hasn't?.. so someone's telling porkies.....

As someone who suffers with a severe and deadly allergy to dog hair, I'd rather have baby smell or people smell, than dog smell as that would mean hair would be about and that is never good for me. I'm sure there are many other's who suffer with this allergy who could potentially use the hall and put them at risk to without them realising.

Got nothing against dogs or dog owners (as long as they are responsible), and it's a shame about the loss of the hall to them, but it's the hall's choice regardless of the reason's.

I do hope they find somewhere else soon though :)

You dont get it.
I am on holiday in Australia at the moment, they have dogs over here too.
The difference is, is that people control their dogs here, not the other way around.
The only problem that I have had was when I was fishing on an almost deserted beach and a dog came up and urinated on my shoes (I wasn't wearing them).
When I pointed out what the dog had done the owner(in an English accent), said "Which dog?".
There was not another thing on the beach for 300 metres.
She was obviously one of your mob!

What a load of BS, sounds to me like the hall owners didn't want to give them any notice so they could take hire money off them right up to the last minute. They must have had an idea when they started building it back in September what flooring they were going to have, and if the training group use matting on the floor what difference does it make? In fact they will do less damage than anyone who doesn't cover the floor, you only need one over excited member of the chess club to scrape his chair and that's it ruined!

I hope they use the correct polish on the floor and no dancers slip and then sue for thousand of pounds.
It happened to another local club many years ago and that was before the blame culture came in.

I hope they will ban ladies wearing stilettos as they cause more damage to wooden floors than any dog can.
