The Eurobodalla Canine Club has enjoyed another successful year with several handlers and their dogs being triumphant in the competition ring in Conformation, Obedience and Rally O Trials, with seven dogs and handlers receiving nine titles at their particular level. The training facilities at the Moruya Showground have proved to be beneficial, as a safer environment for handlers and their dogs. This is reflected in the large number of handlers and their dogs attending obedience classes on a weekly basis. Our classes are conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where dogs learn to socialise in a calm way. It’s a terrific way to get out and about, make new friends both two and four legged, learn new ‘tricks’ with our dogs and enjoy the wonderful outdoors environment.
Our Club is privileged to have a dedicated group of experienced Instructors giving up their time freely to assist with the development of better dog training skills and socialisation of their canines in a relaxed and friendly environment.
All dogs and handlers are most welcome to join our Club. Dogs must be at least 4 months of age and be fully vaccinated, with all relevant paperwork to be sighted when joining. New puppy, rescue, senior citizen, pedigreed or mixed parentage, it’s never too late to turn your canine buddy into that dream pet with the assistance of our Instructors.
All classes re-commence at 6.30pm on the 1st February 2017. Interested in joining our Club, details can be obtained from our webpage www.eurocanineclub.webs.com, our FaceBook page, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Magda on 44711440 or Hilary on 0409 492556. No calls after 9pm.
At the Awards Night, Karen Gould was presented with a Life Membership award. Congratulations on receiving this prestigious award.
“The Club thanks all its members and kind sponsors for their continued support throughout the year”.
