Our Place In The Community
And In The Dog Fancy

Our community involvement includes:
 
  • conducting dog training classes at the Elmira Fire Department
  • providing informational show cases at various public functions (e.g., Vacaville Kid Fest, Woofstock, and SCARF)
  • providing dog reference books to all Solano County libraries

We have members who are AKC® Canine Ambassadors for AKC's Canine Ambassador™ Program, a program that enables local dog club members, accompanied by their dogs,  to share their knowledge regarding dogs and proper care by making presentations, to children -- in classrooms, at libraries, in after-school programs, at Boy/Girl Scout meetings, etc., -- on various topics related to the world of purebred dogs in conjunction with AKC's Best Friends Program™.  Best Friends is a children's education program for grades K through 6 that builds on a child's natural love of dogs (and pets in general) and explores the concept of responsibility by discussing the realities involved in owning a dog -- from feeding and grooming to training and veterinary care.

We have members who are AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC™) Program Evaluators for AKC's CGC™ Program, a two part program that is designed to:

  • teach responsible dog ownership to owners
  • certify dogs that have the training and behaviors needed to be reliable, well-behaved members of their families and communities


Please contact us if you would like to have one of our Canine Ambassadors visit your school.

As a club, we are members of:


  • The American Pet Association (APA)  a non-profit organization working to protect the breeding and exhibiting of dogs as non-commercial ventures, and engage in educational and legislative activities to promote the welfare of dogs  
  • Take the Lead, a non-profit organization that provides direct services support and care for people in the sport of purebred dogs who suffer the devastation of life-threatening or terminal illness
