PAWS ‘N’ CLAWS –Saturday, JUNE 9, 2018

FILL OUT THE REGISTRATION FORM NOW!   PLEASE NOTE EARLY JUNE DATE- RESPOND NOW!

Come and enjoy a fun-filled day in the water with your Newf(s) and your good friends.  A NEW AREA AT Round Valley Reservoir, in Lebanon, NJ will be our site this year.  THE ACCESS TO THE WATER IS MORE GRADUAL AND THE SWIMMING AREA IS LESS ROCKY, BUT THERE IS NO SHADE, SO PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY FOR THE COMFORT OF YOU AND YOUR DOG.  There is no on site source of drinking water, other than the lake.  There is water and a real restroom facility a bit of a drive down the road and a porta potty near our site.   The reservoir has lots of water access so there will be lots of water time throughout the morning and afternoon sessions.  We will have several stations where handlers can learn how to teach their dogs various water exercises, both in and out of the water.  As always, a team of qualified instructors will be on hand to assist with the training of dogs and owners.  In the afternoon, we will be awarding “Guppy, Tadpole, or Frog Certificates” for beginner Newfs who take to the water and achieve each level. These are simple tests that require little or no advance training.  The park also has lots of trails in the woods for everyone to enjoy- there are some playground areas down the road as well- come have fun!    

 We are continuing the tradition of offering everyone the opportunity to enjoy the fun with their dogs (the paws), while finishing the day with a lobster tail (the claws) and/or steak feast.  This is a day worth the trip no matter which activity you prefer!!  All those interested in participating are welcome to attend.  We guarantee a fun time to all, whether you are training a dog, just want to enjoy a fun day with your Newfies, or are looking for good company and a great dinner.  We promise outstanding meals, with burgers and dogs for lunch, and the traditional surf and turf at dinner! Don’t miss them!!! Due to ordering needs you MUST pre-register so please see the attached registration sheet for menus and costs and send them in PROMPTLY to beat the deadline!
