Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I would like to thank everyone that came out for our first Vizsla Socialization & Obedience day of the season. We had close to 30 Vizslas and their owners today!!
A special thank you goes out to all the people that brought the delicious treats to munch on, as well as our friends who volunteered to help set up.
Thanks to Marge & John Mehagian for allowing us to use their wonderful yard, Gary & Pam Richards for setting up and training, Marla Molvin for bringing our merchandise and working with the puppies, Missy Gregory for working with the older dogs, Jenny Campanano for welcoming everyone and helping people get signed in and know where to go, and to Jude Nau for being there to help with some heavy lifting.

Homework:  Just a short 5-10 minute practice session every day is all it takes to get you and your dog ready for our next class. Things that you can practice are: Heal, slow, fast, normal, about turn, halt, "leave it", stay, wait, come, sit and down. Remember to have an upbeat, fun demeanor with your dog and give them lots of love, praise and treats. Have FUN with your dogs.

 Great Turn Out!

We had almost 30 Vizslas and their owners turn out for socialization and training today. It was so fun to see all the dogs and meet the owners. It is so important to keep our "Versatile Vizsla's" minds and bodies active.

 

 

 

 

All Ages, All Abilities
Members are encouraged to bring their Vizslas to our socialization, obedience, hunt and fun days. We will help you train your dog no matter what age they are. Even older dogs love to come for a refresher. We were all beginners once.
