General Club Meetings

These usually take place once each month (July and August excepted) selected in order to avoid conflicts with major holidays and/or major local shows. 

In an effort to make meetings more interesting and non-intrusive regarding the dinner hour, the board decided to have meetings take place a people's home with a "pot luck" dinner activity.  Directions will be sent out each month with the host's address.  Also it will be possible to access maps to the current host, on this website. 

Our Next regular meeting:  Sunday, January 25 -- 12:00 Noon

 LOCATION:  The Ebertins' house

PROGRAM Annual awards banquet and fund raising auction.  Bring a wrapped present (minimum value $15) for the auction.  If you can't make it to the meeting then have someone bring your present to be auctioned.

Socialization and Obedience Activities

Everyone is invited so bring the whole family. 
This is a great place to meet people and their dogs.  
If you haven't done so see information regarding snake proofing your dog.  This can save its life!
Tell us about your Obedience interests here.
Events take place on Tuesday nights. See pictures from a recent class.

Tracking Activities (including trailing and area search). 

We will meet at 7:00 AM in front of Einsteins located in the NW area of the Desert Ridge Mall. The mall is on Tatum N of the 101.  If you are coming off of the 101, head N on Tatum and turn in at In-N-Out Burger and head E.  We will be going out to the desert to track so be sure to bring your recreational Sate Land Permit with you.  If your permit has expired, or you need to purchase a new one go to the AZ State Land web site.


For those of you coming out for your first time bring your dogs favorite toy and/or snack with you.  Also, bring water for your dog.
