News, fresh off the Farm
Meet Bazyl! Thanks to everyone who offered feedback through the Facebook poll.
We are pleased to announce that we have a new little boy from Poland. He is adjusting very quickly to his new family, new food and new time zone.
Pynk got her CKC Jumps and Tunnels Title over the May long weekend at the KW Kennel Club event in Kitchener.
She is old enough now, and certainly smart enough. P2 is recently retired from Agility, so Debby doesn't have to focus on three dogs competing at the same time.
The CARO trial on July 08 is next on the calendar. We are offering a multitude of Team Rounds, as there is a steady demand for them. Read More about the CARO schedule, as well as reports from past trials. 2018 dates are posted with Judge assignments.
The CKC trials for The Poodle Club of Canada have been set for the 2018 season. Agility in August, Obedience in September and November. Lots to do, you can learn more here.
It is officially warm enough to start the 2018 Agile-grip rubberizing season.
The first project was an existing teeter plank, that got a few minor repairs to the steel frame, new wood and new rubber. Quite affordable and extends the life of an existing teeter for a good many years to come.
Health & Lifestyle
Roxanne is here next on July 03 for the Canine Chiro Clinic. More info, including appointment booking. Kathy Zubick will also be here on the 3rd, and again on the 17th.
Just a note for those driving down this way. The OPP have decided to stop giving out warnings for driving infractions around here. They are tired of handing out warnings and not seeing any change in behaviour. Positive reinforcement might work in dog training but people not so much. So don't expect anything other than tough but fair. This covers Highway 24 from Scotland to Simcoe, Highway 3 from Simcoe to Delhi, The Brantford Road from Delhi to Scotland. So you can't get here without passing through the enhanced enforcement zone. Don't speed, don't pass in an unsafe manner, don't drive distracted. Fair warning.
Michaela returns with Advanced Heeling classes. You can contact Debby on Facebook if you want to learn more about how it can help you, and how to book an appointment.
The May CARO trial is done, and the results are ready. It was full, and an 11 hour day of runs. Don't hold your breath for pictures. This is one of two - congrats to Atom & Karen for a well-earned 200. More results and reporting.
Some poodles are black,
some poodles are blue,
the Summer Solstice arrives on time,
though to some overdue.
Pynky & The Brain
Are you pondering what I'm pondering Pynky?
I think so Brain, but if you always do what you've always done and always got what you always wanted, why is there always someone who wants to change things.
