2006 Rottweiler Club of
National Seminars, Test and Health Clinics!
Seminars, Test and Health Clinics!
I am very proud to
report, that with the aid of our membership, we have been able to book
a full gamut of seminars, tests and health clinics for the 2006
National! It had been said that the National event should be more than
just a dog show. It should be an opportunity! To learn about our
breed or a new sport, an opportunity to access professionals that we
otherwise wouldn’t have and to attend tests that might not always be
Even if you don’t
have a dog to show, you’d be well served to attend the 2006 National
Specialty and National Obedience Trial! Our Rottweilers will receive
priority booking, however should we not book solid, we will open these
events to all breeds.
If you would like
to attend the seminars, tests or health clinics, please book early
with Terry Risebrough:
firstname.lastname@example.org or call 705-426-9500. We will be giving
preference to Rottweilers, but will be happy to accept all breeds.
Pre-Registration is highly recommended as space is limited.
