Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

Anderson River Park (Moose Grove)

10 a.m. –  3 p.m.

Fun-filled day of doggie activities and education for dogs and the people who love them!

Come out & meet various breeds and mixed breeds showing off their stuff!

On Saturday, October 3rd, 2009 the Northern California Dog Training Club a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Corporation is holding an event called “PAWSIBILITIES UNLEASHED” in conjunction with the American Kennel Club’s two annual events – Responsible Dog Ownership Day (held throughout the month of September) & Meet the Breeds (held in October). Last year, more than 600 dog clubs and other organizations hosted events nationwide reaching millions of dog lovers and potential pet owners through extensive media coverage.
The following is the Mission Statement of the Northern California Dog Training Club: “Our Mission is to empower dog owners to have a positive experience and relationship with their dog/s by offering professional dog training and activities, and by encouraging members to uphold the Club’s values of respect, tolerance, fairness and courtesy for all people.”
According to most statistical research the #1 reason dogs are euthanized is due to behavioral problems. The Northern California Dog Training Club recognizes the value of training and education people in basic dog training, manners and in understanding the unique characteristics of each breed.
This year’s event is bringing together the numerous dog clubs, dog sports, dog trainers and various pet vendors together to educate the community on Responsible Dog Ownership. By doing this event we hope to REDUCE the shelter/rescue population, encourage RESCUING dogs that are in shelters/rescues, offer TRAINING and REHABILITATION opportunities, and REJOICE in the various dog sporting activities that are available for all breeds, mixed breeds, large and small dogs.
At “PAWSIBILITIES UNLEASHED” we will be having various demonstrations and activities for dog lovers of all kinds including but not limited to: Agility, Flyball Racing, Obedience, Tracking demos, AKC/CGC testing, Canine Freestyle (Doggie Dancing), Schutzhund, Rally Obedience, Therapy Dogs, Guide Dogs and more.
We would like anyone to participate in several ways:

  1. Show up and Enjoy the Fun!
  2. Do a Demo (please contact me ASAP)
  3. Promote & Advertise this Event to Everyone in our Area!
  4. Have a booth (booth fee is $20) at this event offering: an ID Microchip clinic, Health clinic, Health screen testing or First Aid Seminar for dogs
  5. Sponsor this event with a donation of $100 – $500 to cover the costs of park reservation, insurance and publicity expenses.

All proceeds are tax-deductible and I have enclosed a copy of our Non-Profit status. Thank you again for the positive influence we can ALL make on the lives of many dogs in our community. If you have any further questions or need any additional information please feel free to contact me.
