This is a news update from Hudson Valley Dock Dogs. Thank you for participating in the 2014/15 HVDD Board of Directors election.The official results are:
President: Jim Lyons
Vice President: Bill Gleason
Secretary: Sue Sangillo
Treasurer: Barbara Jasmine
Board Member: Cindy Sheils
Board Member: Vicki Tighe
Board Member: Mark Wrobel.
The new board takes effect immediately, but before we begin we want to publicly acknowledge the hard work and many accomplishments of the 2013 Board of Directors: Todd Brayne, Jim Lyons, Kristen Brayne, Sharon Bender, Lisa Donoso, Lynn McAvoy, and Kathleen Segrin. Well done and thank you.
Overall, the club is in excellent shape entering 2015, and we’re looking forward to an exciting season.
The pool and dock will remain in Millerton, but will now be an official Dock Dogs “Sanctioned Facility ” with improved services. It is now known as the K9 Aqua Sports Club.
K9 Aquatics will be a key “partner” to our club over the coming years, and we are delighted to report our conversations are extremely positive and both the facility and the club will be releasing full details very soon.
Our list of 2015 Events will expand in both quantity and quality. There will be at least 2 national events, and we are planning at least 2 additional club events. There will be lots of new opportunities to jump your dogs next spring, summer, and fall.
There are several New Training Programs planned.
For people new to dock diving, we are improving the “Learn To Jump” (newbie) event, and adding a “Learn To Jump 2” training event. We’ve found one session isn’t enough to get some dogs in the pool comfortably – so we’ve added the new course.
For members of all levels, we will be introducing “Mentor Practice” sessions – you can bring your dog and practice, but our experienced club members and trainers will be on hand to provide tips and training advice.
For all members, the popular in-depth Training Seminars introduced this year will continue, and be expanded. Big Air, Speed Retrieve, and E.V.
We hope to hold our next members General Meeting in November, 2014, and will email you the date and time.
Discussions are also underway for a get-together at some time over the Holiday Season.
If you have any questions, or if you have any suggestions for the club, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
