Our next round of nose work classes will begin Wednesday, November 6th and run for 6 weeks each. All classes will take place indoors and downstairs at the Summerland Drop-In Centre (formerly the Seniors' Drop-In Centre) 9710 Brown Street. The cost per set (6 classes, one hour each) is $120 for SODAA members and $140 for non-members.

We are offering coached intermediate practice sessions (for dogs with some nose work training) from 6pm-7pm: forms.gle/7XweJNDDxHSeqn1G6

And beginner classes (for dogs with no nose work training) from 7:20pm-8:20pm: forms.gle/Kdbpki4v8gNaXwVVA

Please see the links above for a little more description about each level. Limited space in each set. Please give me until Sunday to confirm your registration - I will try to do so sooner but might not be able to. Registration via the Google forms are time stamped and we've turned on "email receipts" so you should receive a copy of your registration in real-time so you know it went through properly (note that this doesn't necessarily confirm your spot in the class, but it does show you that the form went through).

You will be asked to sign a waiver at the first class. Dogs must be crated or in your car between turns. You must pick up after your dog. No dog-to-dog contact on the premises.

A bit belated but congratulations to our new Canine Good Neighbours from July 24th! ...

SODAA and some of our local friends put on agility demos (fun races) for the Penticton Scottish Festival today. The weather held for both our time slots and we had quite the crowd cheering on the dogs.

Thank you to the organizers for having us there, our volunteers (special mention to Kathy and Claudia), and everyone who came out to entertain the crowd! Several of the dogs are new to agility and it was very brave of them to perform in front of an audience - and they all did a wonderful job!

Although we do not offer agility classes as a club, this was a great opportunity to engage the community and let them know about the many different things they can do with their dogs.
