Kennel CLub Working Trials taining

Dear KCH Members

Gordon Grierson has kindly agreed to start Working Trials training on Saturday mornings at 9am.  The training will be at the GSD Club apart from the last Saturday of the month, when Gordon will train  Agility at the Kennel Club of Harare.

Please could anyone interested in doing the Working Trials contact Geraldine (contact details below) so that we can establish numbers??

HOWEVER, Gordon says that as he has committed himself to training every Saturday, he expects handlers to be as committed as he is.  He is looking for a solid group of people who are prepared to train EVERY Saturday and not just when it suits them.  Obviously, from time to time, one wouldn’t be able to attend training (good reason needed!) and then he must be informed.

The first training session will be this Saturday, 22 June, at the GSD club.

We look forward to hearing from you!
Geraldine

Working Breeds Club Championship Dog Jumping show.

The show was held at Kennel Club of Harare on the 8th of June. The day was sunny with a cloudless blue sky which is the norm here in Zimbabwe. Temperatures varying between early in the morning 16 to over 22 degree during the day. Ideal for all dogs.

The judges came from S Africa and we provided them with their ring stewards as well as people writing up the scores on the score boards, time keepers for the Dog Jumping etc. Masses of prizes were displayed on a table and prize giving was done after all Dog Jumping classes had finished. The same for the Obedience classes.
