For several years now, the GCGSDC has participated in the Phonex Veteran's Day Parade and we are continuing this year. We are Entry #10 on this staging map (towards the bottom on Montebellow rd). Parking is going to be off of 3rd street, south of Bethany home and you will need a PARKING PASS. Check-In location is at the Noth Phoenix Baptist Church, be sure you tell them you are with the Grand Canyon GSD.
REMEMBER, if you are WALKING in the parade, it is best to get DROPPED OFF at the church and then have your colleague meet you at the end of the parade. Otherwise, you have to walk down the parade route and then back up to the church to get to your vehicle (a total of 5 miles).Please be sure to bring water and snacks, we will have some, but it is always best to be prepared. Reminder the AID and VEHICLE BREAKDOWN stations will be at the corners on Camelback and Central and 7th Street and Camelback. LASTLY, remember there is NO THROWING of anything ESPECIALLY NO CANDY AT ALL. If you have materials to hand out, you’ll need to have people hand them out alongside the spectators and not running back and forth between your entry. Parade pacing is critically important, as well as us having a safe parade. We thank you for joining us, and we look forward to seeing you on November 11th!
Here is additional Parade info or if you have question please contact our organizer.
We had an outstanding Seminar where the dogs and handlers alike had a blast and where treated to a day of knowledge and excitement while working with their GSD's. We owe a special Thank You to Beth for introducing us to this wonderful sport.
Beth is an outstanding trainer with 25 years’ experience working and training animals. She started her obsession at a very young age in the horse arena where she trained and competed in hunter jumper, dressage and also competed in rodeo. Her training turned to dogs about 15 years ago and is still in love with them and all the many activities that you can do with them. Beth currently has 6 dogs that have and still are successfully competing. Currently, she and her dog have the privilege of claiming the #7 ranking on the world stage for extreme vertical in dock diving.
Beth continues to remain active as both a trainer and high-level competitor who is involved in multiple dog sport disciplines including dock diving, agility, scent and protection work. The GCGSDC is truly grateful for the opportunity to spend a morning learning from such a competent and successful trainer.
Thank you to all the members that joined and participated, this was a great event that the club was able to sponsor for its membership as you are so important and valued.
