Canine Good Citizen Training

On Sunday, we held our regular club meeting at a local park and practiced for the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. The weather was nice, the dogs did great, and the dogs even got to meet some kids who were playing at the park and skateboarding which was an authentic learning experience for them. :)

Lilly sits pretty like always

Nala practices her stay while Deja comes when called

After practice, a brief modeling session followed. That's right, the dogs are also in training to become America's next top dog model. Their work is endless! ;) To see the dog model photos click here.

First Annual Yard Sale

On Saturday April 18th the club held its first Annual Yard Sale. Members donated items from kitchen ware, to rototillers, car racks to beany babies. We held it inside the training center at Waggin' Tails Ranch. The day was beautiful and "yardies" came out in droves. We managed to sell all the large ticket items, and most of the smaller stuff too. A Huge Success! We'll use part of the money to fund other group activities and the rest will got toward helping the Ellensburg Animal Shelter care for their critters.
Looking forward to next year's event!!
