AS the Hibiscus Kennel Club approaches the end of another year, trainers and the committee are preparing for the end-of-year function on Saturday 5 December, which is always a great deal of fun with this year being no exception.

Reflecting on 2015, we are all in agreement that it has been a year of growth for both the dogs and the club. Membership has grown steadily and it is rewarding for the K9 Puppy Academy trainers to see the puppies joining Hibiscus Kennel Club after their initial six-week training.

As always members who train their dogs in Agility have been attending shows at Scottburgh and although they do not always go home winners, they enjoy the day with their dogs. We are hosting our last show at the club on Sunday 6 December and invite the public to pay us a visit.

Entry is free and there is always entertainment provided by the dogs and their owners.

The handler prepares to run the course in the fastest time following a definite route plan, but does not consult the dog before setting off so anything can happen in 30 seconds.

Results for the Natal Coast Kennel Club were Billy Engelbrecht and Gunner first with Qualification in non-contact and Sheldene Smit first in Qualification in contact.

Congratulations to Sandra Brunner and Kalash, who travel extensively to attend seminars and competitions in IPO, for their 2nd place in IPO2, one point behind the winner­. They were placed third overall and received an award for Best Handler. Brunner and Kalash can be seen strutting their stuff on the borough field most Saturday afternoons.

Sunday 22 November was showtime again at Scottburgh. This time it was the Natal GSD Club and once again Engelbrecht and her Jack Russell excelled with a first in both contact and dog jumping.

Very well done Anne Shaw with Romulus and Bondi with a third in dog jumping and a second in non-contact, respectively.

Ninette Smith and her amazing little poodle Swish brought home two firsts with qualifications while Glitz obtained a first and a third and her sister Sparkle a first. Well done Sheldene Smit and Chloe with their first and third positions.
