Terrier Obedience Class

 

This class is for Terriers only, and will address their unique habits and traits.  You will learn how to "speak Terrier," and why harsh corrections do not work.  You will also learn how/why positive reinforcement is a magical transformation tool with these strong-minded little ones.  The course is taught by Lori Miller, who has many years of experience with Terriers.

 

 

 


Small Dog Happy Hour

This class is for small dogs only (under 35 pounds and over six months old), so that they will not be intimidated by their bigger doggie friends.  We will do a little training and a little socialization.  The course is taught by Joyce Petrow.

TEACUP AGILITY TRIAL

(Final Posting 4-5-2009)

Our first-ever Teacup agility trial was held March 20 22, and was a big success.  Over 25 handlers participated, and there were almost 120 runs throughout the weekend.  We started on Friday night with a seminar by our Judge, Donni Breadon, who educated us on the Teacup rules and types of courses.  We then had two runs.

On Saturday and Sunday, we had four runs each day, consisting of both Standard courses and Games.  Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun, and many competitors asked us when we would be doing this again!  The event was featured in an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette South edition, along with a photo.  Some pictures from the trial are included below, courtesy of Joanne Kerfonta.  A number of KCTC handlers and dogs participated and most did very well, earning placement ribbons, qualification ribbons, and (in some cases) new titles!

 

Thanks to everyone who pitched in to help clean and tidy-up the club, move the mats, direct the parking, arrange for food, raffles, and the porta-potty, help with registration and scoring, help in the ring as scribes, stewards and leash-runners, etc.  They are too numerous to mention by name!  We tentatively plan to have another Teacup trial at KCTC this fall.
