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.

2/11/17 Indoor All Obedience S’N’G great success

Celebrating 46 Years of Service to the Community (1971-2017)

Azalea Dog Training Club presents

Obedience & Rally Show ‘N’ Go’s on Saturday, February 11, 2017

at our Climate Controlled Training Facility

Questions?  Please contact our Show ‘N’ Go Chairperson:  Bonnie Berg Eckhoff at 910-799-7201 or bjbergdogs@ec.rr.com

ENTRY FEES: all runs will cost $5 each

In response to Students and other Exhibitors’ asking when we will be holding an indoor SnG, in our Climate Controlled Training Facility on Saturday, 3/11/2017!  Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us for a great training opportunity! We have experienced folks calling the various levels of Obedience and Rally and in addition to that, we generally have exhibitors who are beautiful examples of what we all strive for in the ring ourselves!  On a personal note, I find learning from successful handlers is a wonderful tool!

As ya’ll know, we do our best to have our indoor Show ‘N’ Go mimic a real Trial (tho, please note our ring is not regulation sized), so please bring your chair(s) and crate(s) and plan on working your dog(s) and having fun with old friends and new!!

 Doors open at 8:30 am!!  Run Thru’s open to all Obedience trained dogs!  However, we request that you only do Run Thru’s at the levels at which you are currently working.  In a Run Thru, there no time for a ‘caller’ to teach an exercise!

As always, we pay close attention to input from you, our friends, our exhibitors and we continue with the following format for our Show ‘N’ Go presentation:

#1  Exhibitors’ runs will be timed.  Time limits will be as follows: Utility 8 minutes, Open 7 minutes, Novice, (not including stationeries).  In Rally all three levels will be timed at 4 minutes.  So whether you wish to do a true Run Thru or simply want to practice on some element of the level on which you are working, the floor is yours for the stated times!

#2 The fragrance of ‘human’ food makes concentrating on the tasks in the ring really hard for some of the Canine Halves of our participating Teams, so please “no food in the building”!  We’re hoping that by our setting Utility (starting no earlier than 11 am) and Novice (starting no earlier than 1:30 pm), that this will enable everyone to take a lunch break and not have to sit and wait hungry and tired, all day!!

REGISTRATION for Rally Obedience will be conducted from 8:30 am until 9 am. The Excellent Walk Thru begins at 8:50 am!  Advanced and Novice courses will follow.  Latecomers’ entries will be accepted if the level in which they need to practice is not finished!  We will not be able to accommodate latecomers by resetting the ring level for either Rally or Traditional Obedience.

REGISTRATION for Traditional Obedience will be held all morning, and into the afternoon, as needed, with Utility beginning no earlier than 11 am.  Open courses will follow Utility, with Novice following Open. Beginner Novice and Novice will begin no earlier than 1:30 pm
