Fill the Bowl

October 13, 2020 – December 8, 2020

GSDOC is sponsoring the  Street Dog Crew from Salt Lake City this holiday season. They provide pet food, pet supplies and animal medical services for the senior, low income and homeless populations of Salt Lake. They also offer free spay and neuter clinics. We are collecting dog and cat dry food, harnesses, collars and leashes. We are accepting monetary donations to help pay for the medical services. Please bring your donations to Golden Spike during  any Tuesday night class session. We will be accepting donations through December 8, 2020.

Fit Dog Walk!

As you are probably already aware, in 2018 AKC launched the new Fit Dog Program.  AKC established this new program as a means to improve fitness for both the owner and furry friends.  Clubs must establish at least four fitness walks during a given year and provide fitness courses.
GSDOC is going to use this opportunity to continue to help build relationships and strengthen bonds between dogs and their owners.  Our first walk will be Saturday, October 31st at 10 AM, and here is the flyer created for the event.  Along with the Fit Dog group walk, people are also encouraged but not required to sign up for the Virtual 5K for B.A.A.R.K.  B.A.A.R.K is an organization that provides grants to dog owners that need financial assistance during hard times.  Please contact Shea Garcia for questions,

Public Registration opens for Session 5 on 10/10/20 (October 8 for members) and classes start on 10/20/20 on Tuesdays (unless otherwise noted). This session will be 6 weeks long.
