The 2019-2020 term was one of many new opportunities for PDFC.
AKC Fit Dog was introduced to our Members with organized Dog Walks in various corners of our area. We had participation from our Members and guests from the Community. It is a great way to share our pets, the great outdoors, and our beautiful Pacific North West.
We held our first Performance Weekend in September with Scentwork, Obedience, Rally, Farm Dog Certification, CGC and Trick Dog Evaluations. The involvement from our Members and Friends was outstanding! Many new jobs and tasks to tackle.
Scent Work – Classes and seminars to introduce Scent Work took off like lightening! It has been exciting to see the interest and the continued activities growing from this newer AKC Sport. The Scent Work activities also had the bonus of enticing new members into PDFC!!!
We have been learning how to keep in touch with each other and use ZOOM for our meetings and the new “Normal” is developing.
A committee has come up with activities our members want to share or learn about and we have volunteers to coordinate the programs – exciting times are ahead for PDFC!
