Next Regular Meeting - Wednesday, December 11, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.

We get together regularly on the third Wednesday of every month and you’re welcome to join us. The location varies, and until the COVID-19 pandemic is over, we won’t be having meetings in person. We will, however host some online meetings once we get things organized, so check back to see when and where in the virtual world we will be. Because our live meetings are generally at commercial eating establishments, we ask that you not bring your dog, unless they’re a service dog, of course. Local health department rules won’t allow for us to have dogs at the meetings. This month is our Christmas party [click here] and we will be at: Friends Museum 115 South 4th St. Waynesville, Ohio

2022 Therapy Dog Informational Classes

Does your dog have what it takes to bring goodness and light to others? If so, have you considered they may just be a Therapy Dog at heart. Of course, your dog will need some training if so and that’s where the classes provided by Warren County Clover Canine 4H Club come in. While not required in order to become Therapy Dog Certified, these informational classes provide excellent background information and practice sessions prior to an evaluation. You and your dog will learn more about what Therapy Dogs do and give your dog experience being around medical equipment and the hospital environment. You also get the chance to practice for the test to become a certified Therapy Dog International (TDI) handler. There are some basic requirements: Dogs must be one year of age or older Dogs must have basic obedience skills Shots must be up to date and documented Proof of current year county dog license required Dogs should be comfortable around new people and other animals Classes occur from 7pm to 8pm on Mondays on January 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st of 2022, and the TDI Evaluation is on Saturday, Feb 5th. The classes will be held at the Warren County Fair Grounds, Event Center, 1270 N. Broadway, Lebanon, Ohio 45036. To register, send an email to Christine Pohlman and carbon copy (CC) or call Christine at 513-260-4350. For the first class, you will need to bring proof of a current year dog license and up to date shot records, but DO NOT bring your dog. They can come for the rest of the classes later on. The fee is $35.00 per team (one dog / one handler), which includes both the classes and the test. Once the two of you pass the test, there’s an annual $45.00 fee to certify and remain current with TDI for the certification, ID badge, and TDI insurance for both the dog and handler.

Spring Training Session - To Be Announced

The Spring Training Session will run for nine weeks, and will offer... AKC Star Puppy Basic Family Manners Advanced Obedience Rally Obedience Drop-in Conformation The classes run from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Warren Co. Fairgrounds, Lebanon, OH, and are open to all dogs...and their owners, of course. We hope to pick up the regular schedule in the spring. There are two classes where your dog could earn a certificate or title; the AKC Star Puppy and Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. Mostly, however, we focus on training you to communicate successfully with your dog so the “dog training” never ends up being your dog training you…!

Conformation Puppy Match - April 2nd, 2022

Do you have a pup you’re getting ready for the show ring? Consider bringing them to compete in our annual Puppy Match. After the show on April 3rd, we will host an AKC Sanctioned B-Match where puppies three months and older can compete for ribbons and bragging rights. Older dogs and even untitled adult dogs can compete as well, with a Best Puppy and Best Adult in Show awarded to those two special dogs that have the right stuff to wow the judges. Whlie there are no title points or passes awarded, we promise there will be a lot of fun and your puppy will get some well earned experience. So if you’re interested, download the conformation premium list once it’s published and bring your precious pooch for an evening of lights, cameras, and action.
