This year we celebrate the 34rd annual dog show at the CDSG. We welcome Steve Caporizzo, channel 10 Meteorologist and founder of Pet Connection to his 20th year as Master of Ceremonies.
Our program begins with an exhibition of the 14 breeds of dogs that originated in Scotland: Cairn, Skye, Border ,Scottish, West Highland White and Dandie Dinmont Terriers, Rough Collies, Smooth collie, Shetland Sheep Dog, Bearded Collie, Border Collie, Gordon Setter, Golden Retriever and Scottish Deerhound.
Following there will be a demonstration in agility by Trisha Stahl of Agile Dogs Training. Dog agility is a sport run on what looks like an oversized playground for dogs with jumps, tunnels, teeter totters and a pyramid.
Next we have dog tricks and competitive games open to any of the Scottish Breeds. Prizes are given to both dog and handler. All dogs performing are given goodie bags.
Our show ends as usual with a parade led by Barry Smith of The Schenectady Pipe Band. All our lads and lassies are invited to march, Scottish or not. Come and have a wee bit of fun!
