The Canine Club held their annual general meeting for 2017 last week, where they presented Hilary Coulton with Life Membership in recognition of her continuous contribution made to the wellbeing of the club.
Since joining our club 10 years ago, Hilary has been an active committee member, instructor and demonstration team member.
She currently holds the position of Club President and regularly attends council meetings to help improve the dog training facilities at the Moruya Showgrounds.
In between, Hilary successfully participates in Conformation Shows, and Obedience and Rally O trials with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, gaining numerous titles and awards along the way.
In the trial ring, Magda Smyth and Nalu gained their third pass at Utility level obedience with a score of 188/200, first place and his Title.
Sue Matthews and Teddy added another pass at Utility level with a second place scoring 185 /200.
In Rally O trials, Helen Rand and Holly achieved their first pass at Advanced level, Pat Pearson and Roxy their first pass at Novice level and Lyn Watcham with Molly and Issy passes at Rally Masters levels.
In the Conformation ring, Karen Gould and Harmon achieved two Best of Breeds at the Bungendore shows. Congratulations to everyone on your wonderful results.
Term 5 obedience classes commence on Wednesday, October 4, starting at 6.30pm at the Moruya Showgrounds.
Our classes are conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where dogs learn to socialise with other dogs in a calm way.
Now that the weather is a lot warmer, it’s a terrific way to get out and about, learn new tricks with our dogs and enjoy the wonderful outdoors.
All handlers and their dogs are most welcome to join our Club.
Dogs must be fully vaccinated and the relevant paperwork is required when joining.
Enquiries can be made by calling Magda Smyth on 4471 1440.

The first object of the Club is to promote and encourage the training and trialing of all community dogs.
It seeks mainly to involve people with all types of dog breeds to actively participate in training and trialing activities as a means to a greater understanding of their natural instincts and breed characteristics.
We encourage everyone to promote good sportsmanship and good fellowship.
