  • VKC's RDO Day!!!(Valparasio, IN)

    Hello All! I am organizing my kennel clubs 2011 Responsible Dog Owner Day this year. If we have any Dolers in the Valparasio, IN area I would be honored to have you come out!
    So far I have arranged for a demo with the Porter County k-9 units, a therapy dog demo with Canine Companions for life, a Rally demo(with yours truly) a Micro-chipping clinic with a local Vet and much more.I am also working with the Commisoner's office and the Mayor to have September proclaimed as responsible dog owner month in Porter County. Starbucks will be in hand donating FREE hot chocolate, coffee and more, and We will have the famous "Karelian Bear Dogs" hot dog vendor. There will also be a Pet Photographer on hand, as well as many local rescue groups and a couple dog supply vendors. There is NO admission fee, but we are collecting donations for Porter Co. Kibble Kitchen, who's mission is to help struggling families keep their pets by providing food to low income families.
    For the kids, we will have a safety workshop taught by me and my daughter, and for participating the kids will receive an certificate of completion and goody bag! There will also be a small raffle. All proceeds will go to support rescue.

    Admission is free, but we are asking people to bring a donation for the Porter County Kibble Kitchen if they are able, such as dog or cat food.

      Pics of the event...

      Just wanted to include pics of RDO day for anyone interested in how in went. The weather forecast changed and we expected to get a bad storm, but luckily that never happened. We had a decent turn out for the amount of PR I did, and with it being the first year.
      I had to throw a little Dane info in somehow, so I had a Vet come and do a presentation on the gastropexy and laproscopic surgery. We had rally and agility demos, the Sheriffs K-9 teams did a demo, and a lot more!

      Totally in love with the Cane Corso(sp?) girl....she is sooooooo sweet.
