Bill Jackson's Jan 2011

Bill Jackson's Outdoor World was gracious to allow us to hold the January south group meeting in their facility. Full of smells, sights and sounds not usually encountered, the meeting was a success.

Announcements from Marcy were followed by greeting/distraction training. Experienced raisers shared their stories, tips and tricks making for a quite informative session.

Other distractions such as kayaks, all sorts of merchandise and even an indoor shooting range supplemented the normal meeting distraction...other puppies!

Take a look!


  1. Thanks for posting pics! Can you give us a recap of any important announcements for those of us who missed it? Thanks/Woof

  2. The most important thing I picked up was that petting in coat will stop at five months old.

  3. This was a fun meeting. The puppies got a lot of good exposures. One of the things Marcy talked about was a change in how the school is going to evaluate hips. They are going to ease up a bit on what they consider "good hips". Even if a dog's hips aren't perfect, they can now be considered for the guide dog program.

  4. I loved looking through all the pictures! They are great. Thank you for sharing them with us.
