Session III is underway. In response to news of a brand new CANINE VIRUS/FLU that began in FL & GA 6 weeks ago, ADTC Members are in touch with contacts all over the southeastern states, doing our best to keep abreast of potential spreading. There have been no outbreaks locally and we have not heard of any outbreaks anywhere close to us. However, we are being very cautious in order to protect the dogs currenty training at our facility. We posted informational signs at our facility and messages expressing our concern about the spread of this dangerous disease. If caught early, it can be treated successfully, but dogs have been lost to this virus w/ owners thinking the intestinal upset is caused by something their pet ate. If your dog displays any unusual symptoms, please do not wait, have them checked by their Vet asap. In response to this very real threat, a group of our Members have done a preventative cleaning of our facility, using products that should kill any germs. We have cleaned the entire building, including floor, crates, chairs and any other surface that might contain any germs. We are still holding classes, but please use your own good judgement as to whether your dog should attend during this possible crisis. Please check back here on our website, where we will do our best to report any incidences of this disease. Upcoming Events (that may or may not be canceled) : Nosework Seminars 6/17/17, Session IV begins 7/31/17, & Show 'n' Go planned for August. Interested? Please visit the link for each activity and contact us with any questions.

Awards at ADTC!

ADTC hosts three annual awards, of which we are very proud!   All our nominees are winners, in our opinion, with the “winner” being the one with the most votes.

Our oldest Award is the Tina Moran Award.   Tina Moran was a member of ADTC many years ago.  She wore many hats and served the club with great enthusasim and success!   Each of us at ADTC endeavor to live up to the principles under which Tina lived.

The Nancy Parrott Award was created several years back to honor Nancy Parrott for her great love of and spirit in ADTC.   Nancy is a lady who has held every office, including Pooper Scooper Extradinaire, with our group (in other words, she eats, breaths and dreams ADTC!)  This most coveted awards is aimed at the member who has the most outstanding service in any dog activity; a good example is volunteerism in Rescue.

The third Award at ADTC is the “Boo” Temple Spirit Award. “Boo” was a remarkable dog who owned, loved and was loved by the Temple Family.   He dealt with life with great courage and humor, and was a inspiration to all who knew him!  Special dogs who own and love an ADTC Member are eligible to be nominated for this precious award.
