THE Hibiscus Kennel Club (HKC) held their AGM and welcomed Martina Cousins as the new member in charge recently.

Cousins took over from Linda Lyte who has decided to take a back seat this year.

Members thanked Lyte for the efficient way she kept the club afloat as a former chairperson, secretary and treasurer.

“The new committee took over a well oiled machine,” said members.

The club also welcomed Elsie McKillen, who has been a member of HKC for many years and has always been willing to assist wherever possible, said trainer Jenny Robertson. The new committee is formed by Robertson, Sharon Derman, Pat de Korte, Liz Fourie and Ninette Smith.

On Sunday the HKC held their show day for the month of April at Port Shepstone Borough Grounds. The morning started off on a wet field with patches of mud and drizzle but the show went on.

The field was small and only the local dog community participated, but there were some good rounds with happy faces and clever dogs.

“Everyone thinks they have the best dog and none of them are wrong,” said Robertson.

“We welcome new members this month and it is always a bonus to see ex members return with the next generation of dogs. We are so fortunate to be able to train our dogs at such a beautiful venue and are very grateful to the municipality for maintaining the field to the best of their ability,” she said.

Members are reminded that beginners agility and orientation class starts at 2pm, flyball beginners is at 2.30pm, obedience is at 3pm, advanced flyball at 3.30pm and advanced agility at 4pm every Saturday.

On weekdays open obedience is at 3.15pm and agility at 4pm on Tuesday, beginner agility is at 8am on Wednesday and agility at 4pm on Thursday.

For more information contact Jenny Robertson on (head of training) 083 250 4253 or Sharon Derman (chairperson) 073 601 4622.

“We wish to extend an invitation to the public to pay us a visit with their dogs on Saturday afternoons and see what having fun with your dogs is all about. There is no age restriction on dog or handler and no expectations. The only criteria is that your dog must be on a leash,” added Robertson. - Supplied
