The above picture was from a CGN test last October in North Bay
On June 12th, Sunday...there will be a Canadian Kennel Club CANINE GOOD NEIGHBOUR test in North Bay.
Location is Global Pet Foods, 406 Lakeshore Drive, North Bay. It will be outdoors, in the parking lot just across from the store. The cost is $25. and there are wonderful goodie baskets for each entrant. Passing dogs receive a CKC title and a certificate suitable for framing.
This is such a great program initiated a few years ago by CKC and I really support it as it is FOR ALL DOGS, not only registered purebred dogs.
Let's face it, the majority of pets are mixed breeds or not registered single breeds and are the mainstay of most dog training classes.
A friendly, well mannered dog with some basic obedience skills, should be recognized and supported in all our communities along with the responsible owner who brings the dog to this level.
I hope to have our wonderful OPP K9 officer for a demonstration once again, if he is available. Always a hit!
George, at Global, has posters (should anyone have a place to put one) and registration forms, and the CKC brochure outlining the 12 exercises required. Space is limited in this event, so early registration is a must.
The public is encouraged to come and watch and learn at this event as well. It is fun, it is not competitive, and all will have a good time!
