WE WILL HAVE SOME VERY NICE PRIZES!

We would like to encourage our “pet” Cardis to “try their paws” at subnovice obedience.  All of the  exercises are on lead. If your dog has had a basic obedience class and knows basic commands you will have no trouble. The exercises are as follows:

  1. Stand for an examination by the judge( Handler tells the dog to stay and then walks to the end of the six foot lead. Judge touches the dog. Handler returns to the dog.)
  2. Heel on leash( Dog moves by the handler’s side and sits when the handler stops.)
  3. Figure 8 on leash ( The dog will perform a figure eight around two people standing eight feet apart.)
  4. Recall ( Handler tells the dog to stay, walks to the end of the leash and then calls him/her. Dog sits in front and then is told to go to the heel position.)

The next two exercises are performed as a group.

  1. Sit and stay for I minute ( Dog sits and is told to stay. Handler walks to the end of the leash and faces the dog. At the end of 1 minute the handler returns to the dog.)
  2. Down and stay for 3 minutes( Dog lies down and is told to stay. Handler walks to the end of the leash and faces the dog. At the end of 3 minutes the handler returns to the dog.)

The Novice Level is a bit more difficult and would be great practice for those considering showing their dogs in an AKC Obedience event.

  1. Heel On Lead and Figure 8
  2. Stand for examination ( off lead)
  3. Heel free ( off lead)
  4. Recall ( off lead)
  5. Long sit ( off lead)
  6. Long down ( off lead)

THIS IS A MATCH! THE GOAL IS TO HAVE FUN WHILE SHOWING YOUR DOG!

An Introduction to BARN HUNT

On Saturday, September 10th the CCWCC is hosting a Barn Hunt day at the Superpup facilities in Severn, Maryland for a day of fun, food & frolic for Cardigans and their owners and, for an “Introduction to Barn Hunt”.

Jan Huff, the proprietor, has offered to show our club what this exciting new sport is all about and will offer run-throughs of $10.00 per dog for members, and $15.00 for non-members.

Starting at 10:00am. Those interested in running their dogs will sign in on arrival and be given a number and run in order, if you have several dogs, you will alternate with other members.

There are rules & regulations as in any sport and they can be found at the official website: www.barnhunt.com.

This site contains a great deal of information and is well worth visiting. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the sport and determine if your dog has an interest in hunting for “critters.”

We have the venue from 10:00am till 4:00pm and will have the use of a grill; so we will offering hamburgers, hot-dogs and the usual sides, Albie Stepowaney has agreed to be our Chef!

This has the potential of being a really fun, exciting day. The dogs will have a blast searching for the prey, and it will afford a real picnic atmosphere.

Let’s make it a success!!

The address is: 8396 New Cut Road, Severn, MD. 21144.

It is recommended that you bring a chair.
