Introduction to Obedience & Agility plus Off Leash Play In The Fields

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This event will repeat on the first and third Saturday of each month.

The training classes will be your chance to teach your pup the basic commands to allow you to have a better relationship. Common difficulties that we all experience will be discussed. No more pulling, jumping, and suddenly becoming hearing impaired when his name is called! These, as well as all of your other training concerns, will be thoroughly addressed at our Obedience Training classes. For those doggies who already know some of the basic commands, you may take this time to reinforce them by engaging in some fun play through Agility Practice.

Following the Obedience Training and Agility Practice, all dogs are invited to stay and enjoy Off Leash Play time.  If you prefer, it is fine to spend all of your time at free play and not participate in the training portion of this event at all - your choice.  The fields are fully fenced and safe for dogs to run loose and play without constantly receiving correction. There is no time limit - you and your pets are welcome to stay and use the agility obstacles or play on the fields for as long as you like.

There will be freshly filled water buckets available for thirsty doggies.  In the warmer weather, there will also be plastic pools in the Off Leash Play area.  For those of you who make use of the tennis balls, you are asked to please return them to the ball bucket prior to your leaving the event.  Canvas chairs are available for your use and, again, please return them to the storage area before you leave.

The evening prior to this event, specific directions to the location will be sent to everyone who RSVPs "Yes" to attend.

A small donation will be accepted from those Dog THAF Members who choose to assist with the fees charged by Meetup to Organizers (not to mention the cost of agility obstacles and routine property maintenance). Donations are much appreciated but completely voluntary and everyone is welcome to attend whether or not you are willing to make a donation.

All dogs should be in healthy condition at each of our Meetups. If your canine is showing any sign of illness on the day that we are scheduled to Meetup, please do not have your doggie attend! This includes vomiting, diarrhea, or listlessness. Also do not attend if your canine is not up-to-date with routine veterinary care and vaccinations. If your dog shows ANY sign of illness or has been in contact with any ill canine within the previous week, please do not bring him/her to this event.

It is not a requirement for attendance, however, your canine should have been recently dewormed or have a veterinarian perform a fecal analysis to prove that he/she is free of parasites. If your dog should defecate in one of the fields at Tiff's, there is no need to clean up if it happens to be a distance from the action. Droppings in the yard or driveway should be picked up. Bring plastic bags to do this and - please! - help out the rest of us with this chore! There will be garbage bags hanging from the fence close to the gate in which you can deposit you full baggies.

Although this is also not a requirement for attendance, during the warmer months, owners should consider treating their dogs with Frontline or Advantix. These are available from your local veterinarian, through mail order, or at local stores. These must be applied one or two days following a bath and needs to be reapplied if the dog is bathed again. It only lasts for three weeks (not the one month that the manufacturer will advertise).

Participation in any activity with the Dog Training Hiking And Fun Meetup is at your own risk. To the fullest extent allowed by law, all participants waive any claims against, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Dog Training Hiking And Fun Meetup group, it's organizers, affiliates, employees, officers, directors and contractors from all claims of liability of every type (including court costs and legal fees) for injury or death to any person or dog or for damage to property arising out of or relating to your participation as a member. This agreement applies to you, your dog(s) and to any other party who may accompany you in these endeavors.

    Abby and Jen will be back with our new practiced skills of "I will not pull" :) Thanks Tif for providing a great environment for our pals and humans. And for the relaxed way of showing us dogs how to teach our humans to communicate with us! Ruff!

    Everyone in the Intro to Obedience did GREAT! All doggies (and their humans too!) learned fast and will come along with little effort.

    Anne,
    It would also be good to have the kennel cough (Bordetella) medication before mixing it up with other dogs.
