General Club Meetings

These usually take place on the fourth Friday of each month (July and August excepted) and sometimes on the 3rd Friday of a month in order to avoid conflicts with major holidays and/or major local shows. 

In an effort to make meetings more interesting and non-intrusive regarding the dinner hour, the board decided to have meetings take place a people's home with a "pot luck" dinner activity.  Directions will be sent out each month with the host's address.  Also it will be possible to access maps to the current host, on this website.  However, you will be requested to "log in" in order to access that information.

Our Next regular meeting:

Friday, Nov. 27 -- 7:00 PM

Location:  The Ebertin House.  Please bring a dish for the pot luck.  Check with Naomi to assure that we won't get too many duplications.  You can contact Naomi via email by clicking here: Naomi Ebertin :

Socialization and Obedience training

Starting time is 6:45 PM for some socialization activities.
Everyone is invited so bring the whole family. 
This is a great place to meet the club members and their dogs.  
If you haven't done so see information regarding snake proofing your dog.  This can save its life!
Tell us about your Obedience interests here.
Events take place on Tuesday nights. See pictures from a recent class.
