SKC Annual July Picnic


WHEN:  MONDAY, JULY 11, 2016

Club members please bring a side dish. The club will provide fried chicken (three varieties), drinks & tableware. Please RSVP to Peggy Reisinger, our party coordinator <>, so she knows how much chicken will be needed. Peggy can also help if you need a suggestion about what to bring. There will be a CD player if you have some favorite music to share.


We will be having a silent auction at the picnic to benefit the training program.  If you have any dog related items that you could donate, we would appreciate any additions. Anything is welcome.  Extra collars, harnesses, crates, bowls, toys, etc.

Barn Hunt – The Rat Hunting Game for All Dogs

Congratulations to SKC member Deb Borgo and Sami (Ch Glennhaven’s Belisama D’Borgo RA NJP ROMX PROM CGC) for qualifying with one leg toward a title and winning 4th in small dogs at the first official Barn Hunt Association Sanctioned Trial which took place April 13 & 14, 2013 in Columbia, MO.

The new sport of Barn Hunt is based on the hunting and teamwork skills historically used by “ratcatcher” canines in ridding barns of vermin. Dogs and handlers work as a team to locate and mark rats (safe in aerated tubes) hidden in a maze of straw or hay bales. The event is open to all dogs.

Sami wears a big dog smile after his Barn Hunt experience.
