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:   Friday, October 3rd, at 7:00 PM

 LOCATION:  Corinne Kuklovsky's house.  Click here for directions

PROGRAM  Informal talk on Degenerative Myelopathy (DM).  Discussions about the new show location in December.

Socialization and Obedience Activities

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014, was the last official session of these activities -- it is getting too hot for the dogs. 
Keep checking the website, starting around Mid September, to see when these activities will actually resume.

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

Tracking Activities (including trailing and area search). 
Activities are suspended until the Fall due to the hot weather.  Visit the site regularly for an update on exactly when tracking activities will resume.


We will meet at 6:30 AM behind the McDonalds located on the SW corner of Frank Lloyd Wrigt and the 101. We will go out to the Airpark to track. Be sure to bring your State Land Permit. If you don't have a permit, you will need to purchase one before coming out to track.
 

German Shepherds have superb tracking abilities - train your dog to use it!

Join other members for early morning training sessions.
