The GNYHC will have its next meeting at the AKC Canine Learning Experience event on Sunday, July 31 at the St. Johnland Nursing Center, 395 Sunken Meadow Road, Kings Park, NY. We will have a breed booth to present the breed to the public. The Suffolk County Kennel Club is organizing the event and is holding a match in obedience and in conformation. There will also be many demonstrations of dog sports. *Long Island Newsday mentions the event as one of the 10 best things to do next weekend!

This event is open to all folks and their dogs. Yes, you can bring your pet dog! And your friends can bring their pet dogs! The event is on the grass and a great place for our dogs to play. Well have a table and perhaps a tent for shade. Lets all have lunch together and gather at 11:45. Bring food & beverage for yourself, and perhaps some food to share with others.

We all had a blast last year. Ive included a schedule of events so that you can choose what you might like to enter or try. We'll be happy to assist anyone register their dog with the AKC, answer grooming questions, and coach you if you want to enter your dog in one of the matches.
All best regards!
