Tresna Oakes’s toy poodle, Miah. In June 2022, our then President, Tresna Oakes and her toy poodle Miah entered their very first dog trial and gained 2 qualifying passes with high scores 98 & 90 out of 100. Only one more pass to go for the Rally Novice title. A great effort with an excellent outcome.

MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Your dog is YOUR responsibility at all times!
  • All dogs – no matter how big or small – have the potential to cause serious damage or injury.
  • Dogs do not think like people, so to understand your dog you need to think like a dog.
  • NEVER hit your dog to discipline it, as this will only make it fearful.
  • Do not leave your dog unsupervised when it is tied up.
  • NEVER allow your dog to approach a strange dog tethered and alone.
  • Do not assume that because YOUR dog is friendly, other dogs will be OK with it.
  • Learn how to read dog  warning signs to help prevent dog aggression incidents.
  • If you are unsure what another dog is like – stay away.
