Our judges were: Sweepstakes: Mr. Jim Shreffler; Saturday Regular Classes: Mr. Jean Tremblay; 4 to under 6-month Beginner Puppy Competition & Sunday Regular Classes: Mrs. Janice Gallagher.

Sharon Utych would like to thank the Club for the lovely terrarium that was delivered after her knee replacement surgery. It was very much appreciated and brightened my day! Hopefully, soon I will be up in the ring once again!



Let’s say your dog overdid it at the weekend agility trials or tangled with a neighbor’s dog. You broke up the fight quickly.

Upon inspection of your dog from head to tail, you notice he has bruising on his abdomen caused by the pressure of a tooth dragging across the body. However, there is no evidence of any puncture wounds, and your dog is not showing any signs of pain.

Natural treatment option: arnica. This homeopathic medicine is from a sunflower perennial that blooms in the early spring and is also known as Leopard’s Bane.

It is available in pellets, creams and gel forms at health stores and also through

Giving Arnica 30 c in pellet form (four to six pellets equal one dose) to your dog to help with pain and resolve inflammation quickly.

Always discuss any treatment with your vet.

Quick & Easy Peanut Butter Dog Treats


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter - crunchy can also be used
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water

You can use other kinds of peanut butter such as chunky, but if you do you’ll probably need to add more water to the mixture in order to make it into a workable dough.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix together your flour, peanut butter & eggs in a large bowl until slightly combined.
  3. Add in a little bit of water (approximately one Tbsp at a time) until the mixture becomes wet enough to roll out as dough.
  4. Roll out your dough & cut out your favorite shapes with some cookie cutters.
  5. Place your treats onto your baking sheet & cook for about 15 minutes. For a little bit of crunch, I like to take mine out once the bottoms start to darken.


We have a wonderful club, one to be very proud of. The way to have an even better club is through member participation. Over the next couple of months, a great deal will be discussed and decisions made. We have several events on the horizon.....Monthly Meetings, August Specialty, Dr. Alicia Moon September program, Dr. Judy Morgan September seminar. We are all pieces of the puzzle; the way to share your ideas is by attending our meetings and voicing your opinion. Please make an extra effort to attend our meetings at Red Lobster, shows, and events.
