4 Paws On The Run DogTown Strutters
► Saturday @ 10:30, Sunday @ 3:00
This will be our 4th year performing at the Pet Lover Show and we are very excited to show off our 2018 Dog Dance moves!
Over the past 4 years we have performed holiday shows at several seniors care facilities in South Surrey and the Cloverdale Rodeo Parade in 2016. We have even taken our show on the road and performed at the Dog Day Afternoon event in Whistler. The dogs seem to like performing as much as we do and really pick up their pace when they hear cheering and applause from the crowds. The performance is followed by a meet and greet with our fabulous dancing dogs at the ringside.
4 Paws On The Run offer classes in Obedience, Rally, Agility, Canine Good Neighbour and Handling for every breed and age of dog - from puppy (beginning at 13 weeks) to adult. All Classes are designed to help handlers and their dogs become a great team through pawsitive training with food rewards. We focus on having FUN!

In specific communities, CDART has long-time established teams but will answer requests for help through local, provincial and federal government agencies. CDART works with Emergency Social Services at Reception Centres registering animals that need sheltering or evacuation during an emergency/disaster.

Nosework Dogs - You Can't Hide Anything From Them!
► Saturday @ 1:00, Sunday @ 1:30
Nosework is an activity for all pet dogs. It is an activity for every age, breed and ability as well as for handlers of any age or experience. It is a no-aversives, no-discipline, no-guilt, no-obedience fun activity that teams a dog and handler to search for odours. Students start by learning the foundation in a controlled fun environment where the dog is encouraged to find food. As odour is introduced, the teams work their dogs in four elements: interior, exterior, containers and vehicles. Donna Toews (CPDT-KA, CNWI) has been participating in NoseWork since December 2009 and proudly brought the sport to Canada in 2011. She and her dog Edge are the FIRST International Team to reach Elite1 status with NACSW. Join the fun!Donna's Website
Canines are Clever - Rally Obedience with Sam Cassidy from Pacific Northwest Kennels
► Saturday @ 2:00, Sunday @ 11:30
Learn how you can bring more fun into your training sessions with our rally obedience show by Sam Cassidy at Pacific Northwest Kennels!
Rally Obedience is an obedience based sport that emphasizes fun and excitement for the dog, handler & spectator. It challenges the handlers and dogs to improve heeling and teamwork. Good sportsmanship is very important and is expected from everyone participating. It's a sport for dogs and their owners where the dog and handler use directional signs to go through a numbered course within an allotted time. There are two ways to compete in Canada in Rally Obedience, one through CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) and the other through CARO (Canadian Association of Rally Obedience) and any dog can compete and have fun in the sport, whether they are purebred or a mixed breed. You can compete for titles at different levels depending on experience, and you can receive ribbons for your accomplishments in the sport.
