Been a while since I've posted anything but just to catch up, Ace earned his CDX at Lower Camden last May with a 2nd place finish! After being very sick all summer with Lyme Nephritis, we're happy to back in training.

Last Sunday at the K-9 Trial in Verona, he earned his first Graduate Open leg with a very nice 196 and a 1st place! He's almost ready to try for that UD!

K-9 Obedience Training Club will hold an Open House on Tuesday, May 14th from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.  Club trainers will put Club members' dogs through training exercises at all levels, to show what a joy it is to have a well-trained dog in the home, and what it would be like to enter a dog in obedience trials. 

Many breeds of dogs will be shown, including Golden Retrievers, Collies, Poodles, Great Pyrenees, Shelties, Labrador Retrievers, and Schauzers.  Come see them do heeling, retrieval, recalls, jumps, and the like!

Thanks to all the K9 members for presenting Luka with the "Dog of the Year" award for 2012. Being the first dog to earn a UDX title in the history of the club is quite an honor and we're proud and grateful to be recognized!

Our Fall 2011 classes have been completed to great success.  There were many STAR Puppy and Canine Good Citizen qualifiers.  Take a look at videos in the "Look at Us" section.  Several club members earned legs towards their Club Degrees.  I look forward to seeing everyone when our Winter classes begin on January 3.
