Regrettably, a decision has been made to cancel this Sunday's membership meeting due to the weather forecast of extremely heavy rain and high winds. We felt it was in everyone's best interest to stay home, stay dry, and stay safe.
Our meeting will be rescheduled on Sunday, October 21st at the same location (Kinley Training Center in Leroy, Ohio).
Not only will we provide a "Farm Dog" presentation, we also "hope" to offer you the opportunity to actually test for an AKC Farm Dog title. (More details to follow).
Stay above water everyone. Look forward to seeing you in October.
Sunday, September 9th , 2-5PM
at the Kinley Training Center in Leroy, Ohio . Our program for this meeting will be “AKC Farm Dog Certification”.
Our own Carolyn Kinley, an AKC Farm Dog certification judge, will provide an overview and demonstration of the Farm Dog Certification test.
About the CertificationTest
The test is a non-competitive pass/fail evaluation designed to assess the overall conduct of a dog. The dog must demonstrate self-control when exposed to livestock and other unique sights, sounds and scents. The dog should exhibit confidence and a willingness to comply with instructions when confronted with a variety of situations within farm type surroundings. For more information about the test exercises, visit the Farm Dog Certified Test page in the Events section here.
Who can participate?
The FDC test is open to all dogs at least 9 months of age that are individually registered with the AKC, recorded in the FSS program, listed with a PAL number, or enrolled in the AKC Canine Partners Program.
The FDC test provides an opportunity for dogs to apply their basic training in a unique environment. In addition to promoting responsible dog ownership, the basic manners needed for the FDC test will prepare them for many other AKC activities.
The Kinley Training Center is located at: 8250 Proctor Rd. Painesville, OH 44077
