OVBCC Disc Workshop & Demo

Saturday morning, July 27, 9 am to 11 am
Canine Sport Centre, 3859 Carling Avenue
Ring 2

Heather Gallagher, a well known disc instructor and competitor, will be offering a disc workshop to OVBCC members on July 27. Heather will give a demo with her highly skilled dogs, but the workshop will be geared to beginners, participation and fun. Disc is an enjoyable interactive sport for you and your dog so do come and give it a try.

The cost is $10 per dog and there will be a maximum of 10 dogs. Heather will spend approximately 1 hour of the workshop working one-on-one with each handler and dog. There will be time available after the workshop to practice what you have learned on your own. Handlers should bring their own frisbees or discs, or can purchase one from Heather for $5.00 at the workshop.

This workshop is open only to OVBCC members and their border collies. One dog per handler can be registered, but if we don't get 10 dogs, we will open the event up to a second dog per handler.

Payments by e-transfer to OVBCC.Treasurer@gmail.com are encouraged. If another payment method is preferred, please contact Sheila.

Please send an email to the same address to register your dog, indicate if you want to add a second dog to the waiting list, and include the answer to your e-transfer security question. Registration will be first-come, first-served. The workshop will proceed rain or shine.

If you have any questions about the day's activities, please call Libby Staveley at 613-733-6678.

OVBCC Dock Diving Event

Saturday August 10th from noon to 3pm
Avalon Ranch Dog Sports Training Facility

OVBCC is having a fun dock diving event at Avalon Ranch Dog Sports Training Facility at 1934 Lochwinnoch Road Renfrew, which is about 20 minutes north-west of Arnprior.

This is a chance for the club members to enjoy a fun get-together while trying a new dog sport or having a chance to practice. You will also have an opportunity to give Lure Coursing a try if weather permits.

The cost is only $10 per dog, and we are aiming for 10 dogs. Training will be offered in the first hour for dogs who have not done any dock diving previously, or who might need a refresher. The next 2 hours are open to all the dogs, including those who took the training.

Please bring one or more floating toys that can be easily thrown. If your dog is a reluctant swimmer, a life jacket may be helpful. And handlers of beginner dogs may want to dress to be ready to go in the pool to help encourage your dog.

This event is only open to OVBCC members and their border collies. If there is room, we will open it up to non-border collie housemates as we get closer to the event.

Payments by e-transfer to OVBCC.Treasurer@gmail.com are encouraged. If another payment method is preferred, please email Sheila.

Please send an email to the same address to register your dog, and include the answer to your e-transfer security question. Registration will be first-come, first-served. The event will proceed rain or shine.

If you have any questions about the day's activities, please contact John Willis.
