COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Oak Park Demo, Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Every summer, SOTC members and their dogs travel to Oak Park School in Sarasota to present a most anticipated agility demo/therapy interaction visit for the summer campers. This year we traveled with a smaller version of our usual show, eliminating the A-frame and the teeter.

Barb addresses our audience: students, teachers and assistants. Linda and Tristan greet one of the kids.
Lorraine and Riley are a blur as they run our very fast course. Rossane and her young aussie set up at the start line.
Linda and her assistant handler at the start line with Tristan. Hurry! Run to the next jump!
Dog and Boy make it through the tunnel
in record time!
Miss Rina meets a new friend.
Priscilla makes a fabulous debut! Lorraine and Cadyn greet an admirer.

We managed to fill the gym with a course composed of jumps, tunnels, weaves, a chute and a table. It was FAST and FUN and kept the attention of the kids as well as the adults. All dog/handler teams received a generous amount of applause along with an abundance of grins and giggles! The weather this year even co-operated, holding back the rain until the afternoon hours... PLUS the A/C in the gym even worked !! The floor was still a little slippery, but with some "tacky spray" for their feet, the dogs were able to do the full course quite admirably !! At the end of the agility demo, several dogs did their usual "meet and greet." Priscilla, the Bulldog, wearing her camper hat and scarf, thoroughly enjoyed her first visit with the kids. Having the ability to bring some joy into the lives of these very special kids is a privilege for all of us. Needless to say, we will be back to summer camp in 2011. Many thanks to all dog/handler teams.

SOTC Members are ... SIMPLY ... THE BEST!
