A wonderful person who comes to train two classes every Sunday when there are no shows: The 8 o’clock class is for the trainers and the 9 o’clock class she takes the advanced handler and their dogs.
She is no member of a club, just does this for the love of dogs and their performances. When there are shows being held at the club, she still comes and supports her pupils.
Last Sunday 21 May was Pam’s 80th birthday and it was felt that this should be celebrated. After her 9 – 10 class she came onto the verandah and was surprised by her special arranged “birthday table” with special made cake for her and presents from her pupils and friends.
Foto’s of Pam cutting her cake and her pupils standing around singing happy birthday to her.

We will be holding a special Farewell Tea for Gilly Houghton who very sadly will be leaving Zimbabwe at the end of September to move to Barrydale in South Africa. Gilly has been involved with dogs since 1963 and initially her main breeds were German Shepherds and Pugs. Subsequently, she has had Yorkshire Terriers and Golden Retrievers. Gilly is a well known Breed Judge who has also judged in South Africa. She has also competed in obedience with German Shepherds, Yorkies and Golden Retrievers. Additionally, Gilly has also served on the Kennel Club of Harare Committee for many years. As a farewell, we are having a get-together tea on Sunday 25 September to be held after training so that we can all say our goodbyes to Gilly and to wish her all the best for the future! We shall miss her very much and thank her for her great contribution to the dog world over the years in Zimbabwe. Please kindly bring a small plate of snacks or cake as a bring and share.
Please note that there will be the normal obedience training classes at the Kennel Club of Harare at 9am.
