We are pleased to announce that Ontario DockDogs will be holding a two day competition at this year’s Ottawa Pet Expo taking placed November 10-11, 2012. This is an indoor event. There will also be a “Try DockDogs” for a nominal fee taking placing Saturday afternoon for those who would like to try DockDogs with their dog. The “Try DockDogs” will be raising money for BAARK and the Ottawa Humane Society.
Preliminary information on this event is available here – we will post more information (hotel accomodations etc.) when we have it. Look for registration information in August!
Thank you to everyone that made the trip to Chatham to take place in our first 2012 Ontario DockDogs club event! We had a great weekend with some of the best weather in the province (hot and sunny!) and a great group of people and dogs joining us for the weekend from Ontario, Michigan, Ohio and New York.
2012 brings a fairly new executive board that is running Ontario DockDogs so we are so pleased that our first event as a new board went so well and are looking forward to the rest of our events!
Please note that registration for “Let’s try DockDogs” fun jump at 11am is available on site only – $5 per handler/dog team with all proceeds going to BAARK. Any jumps during the fun jump will not count towards qualifying for the finals. This is geared towards those who want to try dockdogs for the first time but anyone is welcome to participate.
If you are heading to K9 Country Inn this weekend and you have never been there before we highly recommend that you take a look at these directions to avoid getting lost. We do not recommend the use of a GPS as there is another 11th line in the immediate area.
Hope everyone has a great and safe long weekend. Have fun and jump big!
