ANOTHER busy month at Hibiscus Kennel Club with many new members enrolling their dogs as they realise they need to socialise with other dogs.

Fortunately, there is more in the package than socialising and for that reason we invited Liesel Twyman from Gauteng to teach us the basic rules and moves of flyball. Those members with “ball crazy” dogs are now working hard to build a team ready to participate in the Kennel Union of Southern Africa (Kusa) nationals at Shongweni at the end of May.

The great thing about this discipline is that the humans do very little running and only require a loud voice to cheer their dog along so any “not so fit” who would like to join the club as they have active ball crazy dogs we are waiting for you on Saturdays at 2pm.

The annual general meeting was held on March 18, and we are happy to welcome two new members. Pat de Korte who has many years experience in training her own dogs and assisting owners of “problem” dogs and Jen Render who has retired from the SADF with a wealth of knowledge in marketing.

Every member of the committee brings their own expertise to make a solid informed and dedicated team.

At the AGM, the chairperson Sharon Derman, thanked the committee, trainers and members for making Hibiscus Kennel Club the happy relaxed club it has become.

Jenny Robertson, the training co-ordinator, highlighted the training as well as the achievements of individual members of the club who have excelled in their fields, being it agility carting obedience or IPO. She could not resist highlighting the abundance of wildlife that live at or visit the Port Shepstone Borough Field.

As if on cue, a stork wandered past and settled on a car parked under the trees.

It was decided to increase the yearly subscription fee from R200 to R250 per year. This has been the first increase in 13 years so it was due and still very affordable.

For further information contact Sharon 073 601 4622 or Jenny 083 250 4253.

Embracing sustainability in tobacco agriculture

In Sub-Saharan Africa, farming represents a subsistence lifestyle for millions of people. In recent years though, the development of farming into an economic activity has made a real change in how the land is used in providing for the population.
