ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

Don’t forget to submit your Cavalier’s achievement award paperwork to Sharon Utych if they have attained an AKC title (this includes CGC and Therapy titles and the new AKC Achiever Dog certificate) in the current award year (November 1, 2017 thru October 31, 2018). All the information for the requirements and form can be found on the club website at: https://ckcscatlanta.org/member-achievement-recognition-program

PROGRAMS

We currently do not have a program committee chairperson to coordinate programs for the club. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Paula Ayers. If you have a suggestion for a program or know of someone who would be willing to come to speak to the club, please contact Paula

NATURAL REMEDIES

Yogurt. High in calcium and protein. But make sure to only choose yogurts that do not contain artificial sweeteners or added sugars. Yogurt with active bacteria can act as a probiotic and are good for your dog's digestive system. I give my dogs yogurt quite often and they love it. I use plain, unflavored, organic, full fat Greek yogurt.

RECIPE OF THE MONTH

Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats

Ingredients

  • Low-fat plain yogurt
  • Blueberries


Directions

  1. Use an ice cube tray (or several, depending on how many treats you want to make). You can get ice cube trays at the Dollar Store or any grocery store.
  2. Put two blueberries in each cube compartment.
  3. Spoon some yogurt into each compartment over the blueberries.
  4. Put two more blueberries on top of the yogurt. You can either leave those blueberries uncovered or you can add another layer of yogurt.
  5. Freeze 2-3 hours then let your dogs enjoy!

ACKCSC NEWSLETTER

If you have had a new champion or major accomplishment after February 2018 and would like it to be included in the upcoming emailed ACKCSC newsletter (which is emailed to ACKCSC members), please email Sharon Utych (utych@earthlink.net) BEFORE June 4, 2018. Our club reports are limited to 300 words for the newsletter, so we need to keep the information just to the cavalier name, owner, title earned and date.

BRAGS
