There will be a Companion dog show in aid of Pets as Therapy on Sunday 15th April at Roseisle Hall, near Burghead. Pedigree, novelty and obedience classes are scheduled - something to suit everyone! Dogs have to be 6 months and over to enter but they don't have to be Kennel Club registered. It will be a great day out so please go along and support a good cause. Entries from 10.30am, judging starts at 12 noon.
The following week, on Saturday 21st, the club is holding an Obedience match in the hall. It will be a fun, informal day with three classes scheduled to cater for anyone from complete beginners up to experienced dogs and handlers. Entries from 10.30am with judging starting at 11am. Refreshments will be available. We'd love to see you there.
Ross and Cromarty open show was held today at Invergordon Leisure centre. Quite a few Spey Valley members attended, the most notable successes being in Terrier and Utility. A few photos follow but I was only there for part of the day so may have missed other wins. Please send any results and I'll be happy to post them.
The terrier group being judged - well done
to Karen and Ceilidh who took it.

We are a Kennel Club registered club holding classes in St Thomas's Hall, Keith on Tuesday evenings.
Ringcraft 6.30-7.15pm, Puppy 7.15-8pm, Bronze Good Citizen Dog Scheme 8-8.45pm, Silver and Gold Good Citizen 8.45-9.30pm. £2 per dog per class.
New members are always welcome.
The club is run by a committee of volunteers, none of the trainers receive any payment. Any profits made go back into the club and regular donations are given to charity.
As part of the test, owners are required to carry a poop scoop and also make sure that their dog wears an identity disc.
We would like to point out that BY LAWthe disc should show the owner's name and address, anything different will result in the dog failing the test. Phone number and postcode are optional but not required by law.
