RAD (Retired Agility Dog) Fun Match
September 28, 2019
This event gives retired agility dogs the chance to compete in a fun day of gamblers, jumpers and tunnellers. The
courses are built with no spreads or doubles and extra time is added to account for our senior dogs. No more than one contact is used per course and it is set at lower than special vet height. Jump bars can even be set on the ground, if needed. This event has been held from 2016 and has proved to be very popular. Click here for

The Great Agility Yard Sale
Members bring dog-related items they no longer need to the second K9-Kup for a big yard sale. This event was held in 2017 and 2018.
We are looking for persons wishing to offer products and/or services aimed towards dogs and their handlers.
We are not charging a site fee, but the vendor will need to supply their own tent, table (s) and whatever else may be required to display products. Please send an email to Kat@cranstone.ca if you have any questions or to reserve a spot. Sitemap, directions and instructions will be sent out after confirmation.

Do you have a child or teenager interested in dog agility? We welcome junior handler participation in our K-9 Kup.
Come join us for some great fun and agility practice for our 2019 season (June to October).
CANINE GOOD NEIGHBOUR EVALUATION
Diane Solman became certified as a Canine Good Neighbour Evaluator in 2014 and in the last half of the season evaluated several dog & handler teams, many of whom succeeded in obtaining their CGN title!
We plan to continue to offer such testing in the future!
STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE DATES!
The test is non-competitive and allows dog and handler to demonstrate confidence and control in 12 steps (click here to see a list of the 12 steps). It assesses the handler and dog's relationship, together with the handler’s ability to control the dog. Dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.
The training program embraces both purebred and mixed-breed dogs and is fun, rewarding, and useful. It encourages owners to have a better and richer relationship with their dogs. The program also enhances community awareness of responsible dog ownership and the numerous benefits associated with dog ownership.
The CKC will mail certificates to the teams (handler and dog) that successfully complete the test.
