Canine activities at Spring Fling

Master Gerald Goodwine posted this to the Calontir List:

New! Canine Activities, please feel free to bring your dog and join in the fun…so long as they play and work well with others…


It will be a day jam packed full of ideas. The overall mindset will be to get out and start training your dog with a finger pointing to a period direction. Schedule changes for court times and class additions. We may have an opportunity at Cattle Raids (Aug.) at the same site.

  • 9:30 Meet and greet.
  • 10:00 Weight pull harness making: Early in the day so people could multitask/work on harness for the weight pull class. I will have all the materials needed. I will have harnesses but not guaranteed to fit your dog.
