Updated RDO Events & Information Sept. 21

The South Central Missouri Kennel Club will be hosting a Responsible Dog Ownership day and Agility Fun Match on September 21st at the ball field at Mammoth Spring State Park in Mammoth Springs, AR.  The day will start at 1:00 p.m. with Jumpers with Weaves competition.  Classes will be novice, open, and excellent.  Dogs are required to go over a series of jumps, thru weave poles and a tunnel.
Throughout the day dogs of various breeds will be there.  You can meet their owners and learn about the breed.  This is a good opportunity to find out more information about a breed you may be interested in owning.  At 5:00 p.m. a parade of breeds will be held.
Dogs and handlers will be demonstrating K9 Protection, Field/Hunt, Search & Rescue/Tracking, and Carting.  At 5:15 p.m. a relay agility demonstration will start.  This event involves teams of dogs in head-to-head competition going thru a series of weave poles and a tunnel.  At 5:30 p.m. AKC Canine Good Citizen testing will take place.
Admission to the event is free.  The entry fee for the Fun Match is $5.00 per run (up to 4 runs per dog) if mailed by Sept. 10th and $7.00 per run after that date.  Canine Good Citizen testing is available for $10.00.  Information and entry forms are available at  under upcoming events.

Labor Day Training at Galloway Park

We will be having our training get together on Monday night (Labor Day) at Galloway Park starting at 6:30. We will be there until around 8. I'm not sure what time it gets dark. So if you can't make it right at 6:30, we'll be there for a while. I'll be bringing the agility equipment so folks can practice for the Fun Match. We will also be offering Canine Good Citizen testing at the Fun Match, so we can practice for that also.

Remember to bring mosquito repellent. I'm not sure if the park has been treated again but mosquitos there can be bad. I don't know of any place that isn't bad this year.Hope to see you there.

Directions to the park: At the traffic light where business 63 meets Hwy 63 meet on the north end of West Plains, you will see the Ford and Toyota Dealerships. There is a road, Girdley, that goes between these businesses. Take this road. You will go under the railroad tracks. At the top of the hill there will be a stop sign. Make a left at the stop sign onto County Road 1770. The park is about 1/2 mile down this road on the left. We will meet in the field in front of the pavillion.
