ALTHOUGH the rugby has been a huge contender the last couple of weeks, Hibiscus Kennel Club has enrolled new members each week. It is heartening to see members who have fallen away returning to continue training or to train an addition to the family.
A reminder that fees remain at R200 per year for adults and R60 per year for pupils with an additional R50 once-off enrollment fee. This money is used to maintain the building, pay for amenities ad purchase new equipment, which is costly. This month alone we have purchased new weaving poles and a breakaway tyre.

Our best recommendations come from members who have trained at the club and from members of K9 Puppy Academy who themselves have joined the club.

This weekend members travelled to Ashley to participate in championship shows where some of us did very well and others came home empty-handed. At the end of the day our dogs are all winners as they always do their best to please us and ask for so little in return.

Tracy Norton and Georgie participated in the Obedience Classes and were awarded 89% in the Beginner Obedience category. This is a young dog still so watch her.

Ninette Smith had another successful weekend and was so excited to hear that Ozz was now a non-contact champion after being awarded a QC.

Sparkle and Glitz Ninette`s two Border Collies each obtained a first place with QC and little Swish a first place with QC and a third.

Sue McCay is very proud of Gita who is doing so well at carting. This weekend was no exception as she added a first and second to her tally with one QC, not to be outdone with Jose with two firsts one with a QC.

If you wish to share in the wonderful experience of dog training join us on Saturday afternoon at the Port Shepstone Borough Grounds at 2.30pm. - Supplied.
