News, fresh off the Farm
Construction complete! Inspections passed, permits are done and closed. The canopy provides some welcome shade outside the door for crating and just plain sittin'. Of course nothing is ever really done around here. So if you see some new exterior lighting and maybe some other changes, don't be surprised.
Until such time as things get back to whatever the "new normal" becomes, we will continue to post updates here weekly. Stay Safe.
The Brantford & District Kennel & Obedience Club will be holding two Rally Obedience Sanction Matches here at The Poodle Farm on Sunday July 12. Entry will be limited, and full COVID special precautions including the wearing of face coverings will be in place. There are two Matches, same day. Good chance to get out and shake off some rust.
The Poodle Club of Canada CKC Agility Trial scheduled for August 8/9 is a GO! The Official Premium and entry form has been released, and is open for entry.
The Poodle Club of Canada CKC Scent Detection trials for August 23 are full, further entries are going on the wait list in the priority order in which they are received.
Things are starting to re-open more. Debby, Michaela, Mel and Whitney are all back with individual lessons. We have a procedure for cleaning any equipment that is touched, and there is space in the schedule to limit the amount of overlap and interaction between lessons and students.
A full set of rubberized contact equipment, weaves, jumps and tunnels. We have plenty of tunnel bags and are running evaluations on our new breakaway tire jump. Our facility has approval from UKI to be used for your UKI At Home Trials. If you would like to use our facility, pleasse use the contact form and Debby will be happy to help you.
Health & Lifestyle
Surface cleaning and sanitation are obviously important right now. Many cleaners advertise the effectiveness against 99.9% of germs and bacteria, some even make claims to a residual protective action for up to 24 hours after application. Just be sure to read the fine print. Some kill 99.9% of the population of specific germs and bacteria on a surface, and are not necessarily effective against 99.9% of all possible germs. And they don't offer any residual protection against viruses. And the COVID-19 is a virus. Education, soap and water are still the best weapons.
According to the schedule, Roxane is here on 07 July. The full schedule for 2020 is updated and available for your viewing. More info.
Our first CARO Trial since the restrictions were lifted is done. It was a hot day, but short due to the limited entry as we learned together how to run an event under the current circumstance. For highlights from this and past CARO events and the coming dates Check out our CARO calendar.
The Brantford & District Kennel and Obedience Club have applied for events at The Poodle Farm, in addition to dates for the Poodle Club of Canada. Our CKC Events page will be updated once the CKC works its way through the current period of service delays. For event details when approved, Check out our CKC calendar.
Poodle Poetry & Pynky
Some poodles are blue,
some poodles are black,
we're ready and happy,
to welcome you back.
Pynky & The Brain
Are you pondering what I'm pondering Pynky?
I think so Brain, but calling the kettle fuschia will likely confuse the POTUS.
