Laurel Dog Show

Applewoods was well represented at Laurel's Third Annual Dog Show this morning. We had a table set up with information on our next Canine Good Citizen test on October 15th and our upcoming group classes. We also had a drawing for a copy of Margot's book, Mud Heaven. Rugby was the unofficial table mascot, and wagged his tail at all our visitors, with the occasional kiss.

Several of our students entered the competition and brought home some ribbons! Retha and Shadow, the toy poodle, entered in Best Puppy and took the the blue ribbon. He is one cute puppy!

Next was Jan and Ben, who entered in Most Obedient. A drop-on-recall and retrieve on the flat got him first place in that class!

 Roxanne went last with Sugar in the final class of the day, Best Trick. They had a whole skit that included directed retrieving of food bowls, fetching and placing on a cushion, and carrying the bowls away. Not only did they take Best Trick, but they went onto win Best In Show too!

Applewoods also did a demonstration at the event. More pictures and videos to come! We met lots of new people, and cute dogs too! Thanks to the City of Laurel's Department of Parks and Rec for a great dog-filled afternoon.
