EVERYONE is reminded that 25 - 27 September is a long show weekend at the Hibiscus Kennel Club. Dogs will be competing in Contact and Non-Contact Agility as well as Jumping at the Port Shepstone Borough Field on all three days under the licences of Margate Kennel Club, Hibiscus Kennel Club and Natal Sporting Hounds Association. Sixty four dogs are expected to participate, multiple dogs at times to one handler. The competition should be strong as this is where the dogs wanting championship status will be pitting their strength against others in their class.

We are fortunate to have both out-of-town judges as well as our local judges who are always so willing to assist.

The public is welcome to show their support and encouragement. Entrance is free and food will be available for purchase.

Club members who attend shows have been travelling up and down the coast and Jenny Robertson­ and her family attended the Eston Agricultural Show and spent the night there in a tent with other dog enthusiasts. The two furry ones were amazed that mom and dad were sleeping on the floor and spent the night playing “four in the bed and the little one said”. Needless to say it rained, but fun was had by all. There were at least 16 Border Collies and seven Poodles, among others, all running free in the campsite and all agreed to agree.

Attendance on Saturday has been sluggish, but those that attend regularly always make it worth the trainers while as everyone leaves happy and relaxed knowing that their dogs have had a lovely afternoon.

We welcome Bonnie, owned by Jenny and Ian Render, who has joined Hibiscus Kennel Club after attending K9 Puppy Academy and also to Shimmer, newly owned by Ninette Smith. These two will become “stable” mates and will probably compete against each other in two years time.
