|Gas City Dog Club(1979)|
|The Gas City Dog Club was formed in 1979 in Medicine Alberta by a group of individuals who had a common interest in obedience training and competition for dogs. The club has evolved since that time into a training club whose focus has been the education of its own members and the public regarding responsible pet ownership and in particular - obedience training for dogs.
The Club provides obedience classes to promote humane training of dogs (for home and for competition) as well as responsible dog ownership. In addition, the club supports the activities of rescue facilities such as the SPCA and SOS by providing obedience training at a reduced cost to those individuals adopting dogs.
The Club also provides learning and social activities for the members by:
# Keeping a library on dogs and training methods
# Sponsoring educational opportunities for members
# Offering opportunities to apprentice with instructors in the classes
# Fun shows, trials and social activities
In an effort to provide members with a venue to show their dogs, the Gas City Dog Club became officially affiliated with the United Kennel Club, Inc. (UKC) in 1998. The UKC (established in 1898) is the second largest breed registry in the USA. It promotes the philosophy of the "total dog" and emphasizes that the temperament and structure must be present for the dog to be able to function in various activities. UKC also allows those owners of dogs who are non-registered purebreds or non-purebred to register their dogs for competition in performance events (obedience, agility, weight pull) as long as the dog has been spayed or neutered. UKC supports the premise that their events should be fun, relaxed and family oriented. In this same spirit of family centered fun, the Gas City Dog Club annually sponsors a UKC Licensed Obedience Trial Weekend each summer. We'd love to see you there as a participant or a spectator.
