Dogs on Show web‘Dogs on Show,’ is fast approaching, and as this event is our annual open day for the public, we would like as many members as possible to be involved.

The event highlights the advantages of owning a purebred dog, along with the many activities you can enjoy as a Dogs NSW member, so it is important to have as many breed clubs or breeds represented on the day, so that the public can see the incredible range of beautiful purebred dogs and get first hand advice from breeders.

Members can participate as part of the Championship Show, a demonstration, Agility, Obedience, Herding, Retrieving, Earthdog, Junior Handling, Drafting or Jack Russell Terrier Racing events, or even as a helper on the day. You might just like to come along and be part of the Pageant of Breeds, (as long as you are dressed up) as this is always a fun part of the day. There will also be some great prizes on offer for the winners of the Pageant of Breeds as well as the Breed Stands!

Jane Killion is the director of the film "Puppy Culture: The First 12 Weeks That Can Shape Your Puppy's Future."

Each lesson contains important foundations from this well-regarded film that will potentially effect not only the way breeders rear their young puppies, but also the way dog trainers and pet owners relate to their pets. This seminar will show how to change outcomes for puppies and their people by doing the right thing at the right time during the critical first 12 weeks!

Heartworm Awareness Month webApril is Heartworm Awareness Month!

Given the recent wet weather and expected rise in the number of mosquitos, Dogs NSW reminds dog lovers about the higher risk of heartworm infection in dogs.

Heartworm is a deadly blood parasite that is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito. Watch out for signs of heartworm including mild persistent cough, reluctance to exercise, listlessness or depression, decreased appetite and weight loss.
