RAND PARK DOG TRAINING CLUB, INC. WINTER 2020 NEWSLETTER
FROM: The DOT
It’s time to register for the Spring Session. Included in this issue is the registration form for existing canine students. New dogs, regardless of whether they belong to a current member, need to register thru Michelle Jaworski firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, we need all the assistance we can get from our members. I’m asking that first hour students and instructors come 15 or 20 minutes early and help put up the gates and the last hour students and instructors help take down some of the gates. Utility only needs one ring gated, the side closest to the state. If the first hour members/students can also pull out 4 mats – 2 short brown mats on the wall side, and 2 longer green mats for the stage side. Your help will be appreciated and will allow the dogs to jump safely. Also, you can use the ring until classes start at 6:15 for practice time!
Any comments, suggestions, etc can be sent to me at email@example.com. Also, Karen Schaubel (Assistant DOT) is at training on Tuesday nights – you can also talk to her if I’m not there.
Stay warm, and see you all on Tuesday nights!
Congratulations Skeeter! You're never too young to win!
When I was entered in a trial at the Sheboygan DTC this fall, the club advised they were having a day-of entry for the Farm Dog Certificate (similar to the CGC for farm dogs). Well, I decided to enter my puppy, Skeeter, who was 9 1/2 months old. She got her title!!! When she got to the flock of chickens, she just stood there and looked at them as if to say "what height do they jump?"

Rand Park will have a booth at this show. We are looking for volunteers to help staff the booth. If anyone with an appropriate dog(s) as described below can volunteer and bring their dog(s) that is wonderful (but not required). Hours are below. We get only 2 parking passes and 6 show passes. After that we need to pay for all parking and show passes. So if we can get folks willing to do a 4 hour shift or for a day that would be better than shorter shifts. Info is below and flyer is attached.
PLEASE HELP US PROMOTE: Lastly, we ask that you are making your best efforts to help promote the show. You will find a promotional coupon attached and at https://petchicago.com/info.asp. Please spread the word on event calendars, websites, e-mail blasts and social networking sites. Print them off and give them to friends

A woman called our airline customer-service desk asking if she could take her dog on board.
“Sure,” I said, “as long as you provide your own kennel.” I further explained that the kennel needed to be large enough for the dog to stand up, sit down, turn around, and roll over.
The customer was flummoxed: “I’ll never be able to teach him all of that by tomorrow!”
