When the dog program was introduced at the St. John’s schools, no one thought the day would come when we had students learning to show the dogs! These were working animals, brought in to be mushed across the prairies and mountains.
Soon enough though, both the Manitoba and Alberta schools had professionals come out to help the boys train the dogs in obedience, and eventually in showing the dogs at the local dog shows. Though no Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the Dynevor Kennel dogs held their own.
What are your memories of participating in the dog obedience program or the dog shows? Any time you work with animals there are bond to be stories! Send us yours.
