A Special Thank You from our President, Betty Pearson: To everyone who helped at the SDOC May Trial, and RGKC trials, thank you all! Trial Chairs, Stewards, those working all day every day and those who were there to help as much as they could. Also those who did Hospitality and kept the judges happy with drinks of their choice not mention the thirsty stewards. You are all so appreciated. Also a special thank you to those who loaded Terri s truck at our site and conveyed all our equipment to the show site and unloaded there, then repeated the work in reverse on Sunday afternoon after long hours at the trials. It takes a village to put on such a series of trials, and you did. I hope that those of you showed as well did great! Good luck in whatever you do this summer, trials, shows, or just loafing around (as if dog folks ever get a chance to do that).

4 From AKC, Ring Procedures By Diane Schultz SDOC Board Meetings are held on the Tuesday prior to General Membership meetings at the SDOC Training Building. Minutes are available for review by contacting the Recording Secretary at net or at any General Membership meeting. Entering and Exiting the Ring should not be a free-for-all. Here are the proper procedures: It has been a long-standing policy that dogs entering and exiting the obedience or rally ring must be under control. The area of the ring gate, where a team enters and exits the ring, is busy, with people and dogs routinely coming and going. Leaving the ring with a dog under control is not only a sign of good sportsmanship but promotes a safer environment for all. Prior to May 1, 2018, lack of control often went unnoticed by the judges and was not properly penalized under Miscellaneous Penalties. The additional language that requires a judge to be in position to see the team exit the ring and to penalize the dog that does not remain under control when they enter and exit the ring, is expected to improve ring safety. It is in no way intended to prevent a team from celebrating joyfully inside the ring between exercises or after the last exercise. The celebration, with the dog remaining under the handler s control, may include and is not limited to jumping for joy, hand touching, spinning, and tugging on the leash inside the ring; however, the dog must exit the ring gate under control and without jumping, tugging or pulling. Judges must penalize under Miscellaneous Penalties if this occurs. Flat-Coated Retriever Specialty News By Janice Anthes The theme of the Flat-Coat specialty was Harry Potter and dogs and handlers formed Quidditch teams. The one in which Janice and some of our local folks participated was the HufflePuff team. There was a total of 7 teams, including Slytherin! It was a complete surprise when Janice s team took first! Topper, who just had his first birthday, earned a in Beginner Novice, just a half point out of the ribbons. He finished his Beginner Novice title. There were 29 Flat-Coats in his class! Not bad for such a youngster. Tempe earned an Agility Preferred Fast leg and second place in her class. Most fun was watching Topper s sister, Roxy, earn a 198 in Novice B to tie for HIT. Unfortunately, she lost the run-off. But Janice s dogs sure did themselves proud! Janice is back to teaching the Novice Drill class on Thursdays. Novice will be followed by Open Drill on even dates and Utility Drill on odd dates. The class will continue until after the Sporting Dog Show/Trials on November 3/4. Obedience classes are open to all dogs at the Sporting Dog trials! After that, the drill classes will take a holiday break. Be sure to support this event which is being hosted by Coronado Kennel Club. More details later. Page 4

6 Prez Sez By Betty Pearson To order SDOC t-shirts and sweatshirts, contact Estelle Metz Stay warm or be cool, in style! We had a wonderful May trial and many of the SDOC members have brags as to how well they and their dog did. Remember, this is a team effort and I think we all have a tendency to say how well our dog did.. I know I do and I am often corrected. Things would have not gone nearly as well as they did if there had not been many people stepping up to fill in as needed and their show schedule permitted. Some were able to give large blocks of time and effort and some gave smaller blacks of time as they could. All were invaluable and I thank you all. Too many of you for individual thanks but I want to say thank you to the trial chairs, Marcie Jensen and Lois Whitmire who made it all look easy and I am sure it was not and to Head Steward Dede Brownstein who by some miracle that is beyond me was able to have all the rings fully staffed all the time not only for our trial but for both days of RGKC trials as well. You are both amazing!! It truly does take a village, sometimes a city to get things done for any of our events. Thanks are due to all of those who came to support SDOC at the Los Ranchos Canine Celebration held on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. It is always a fun time, with the added bonus of all the market has to offer. Many thanks to Jeff and Cathy Robb who put in a good deal of time getting this organized as well as getting the equipment to and from the club. Also many thanks to those who came and helped load and unload the truck both Fri and Sat, and to those who came and participated in the demos of some of what SDOC offers. Lots of new classes coming up, so check the website and see what might be of interest to you and your canine friends they love to come and learn.. Since it is getting warm, please be sure that you don t leave your dog in the vehicle for any length of time and it is always a good thought to have water and a bowl along. Good luck to any of you who are off to participate in any venue with your dogs. Enjoy them.. they are the best. The next meeting is 29 June We d love to see any and all of you there and hear what you and your dog(s) have been up to Page 6 Scents & Nonscents

7 Call For Stewards! By Penni Adrian On Sat.,, Sun., and Mon., September 1, 2, and 3, SDOC will hold its Fall Trials.. In order to have a successful event, we will need volunteers to serve as stewards. Pennie Adrian and Pam Day will co-chair the trials. Why steward? Here are some of the reasons: First, you will perform an indispensable service to SDOC. After all, we cannot have a trial without stewards. And in order to ensure a more successful experience for all of us, SDOC has agreed to provide stewards for RGKC as well. Second, you have an opportunity to personally benefit from volunteering. Here s why. You ll become more familiar and comfortable with how to perform exercises at various levels, something which is particularly important this year because there are significant changes being implemented for Obedience on May 1st. Many new exercises were added recently to Rally as well, including the new Masters Class. You ll learn about ring procedures. You ll have the opportunity to interact with our judges. It s fun and will help make you more comfortable when you show your own dog. Why? Because you ll find out that judges are human beings with faults and failings -- no different from your own! Stewarding will not only give you a close up seat for cheering on fellow SDOC members but you ll see some excellent performances by local exhibitors and out-of-towners. A great learning experience in and of itself. You ll even get a free lunch! There are 3 stewards for each obedience ring and 5 for Rally, so take your pick and add your name to the Steward Signup sheets at SDOC or call Dede at If you wish to steward for Rally please contact Betty Pearson. I cannot encourage you enough to take advantage of this opportunity. You ll be glad you did! There is already a sign-up sheet on the board in the training room on the bulletin board! If you don t see it, give Pennie or Pam a call. FAMOUS BROCCOLI SALAD Here is the recipe for the famous salad that was served at the SDC May Trials and was a very big hit! 1-2 bunches of broccoli 1/2 cup golden raisins or dried cranberries 1purple onion thinly sliced 1 cup toasted sunflower seeds 1 pound bacon 1 can mandarin oranges Has your dog accomplished something new? all the details to the Editor. AND if there s a CH or X anywhere in that title, please include a picture of your dog! Do Ahead: cut tops off broccoli, slice onion and add raisins. Can refrigerate overnight. Next: cook bacon and crumble. Needs to be well done. One hour before serving, add dressing. (1 cup mayonnaise, 1/8 cup sugar, 3 Tablespoons cider vinegar) Just before serving, add bacon, sunflower seeds and oranges. Stir and serve. Enjoy the compliments! Page 7

10 Knowing First Aid Can Save Your Dog s Life By Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine Too few dog owners know what to do in case of an emergency with their pet. All pet owners should have a working knowledge of first aid and CCPR should and emergency arise and minutes count. Equally important is recognizing what s normal for your dog how he usually walks, sleeps, eats, urinates and defecates, says Elizabeth Rozanski, DVM, a specialist in emergency and critical care at Cummings School of Veterinary Medice at Tufts University. Simple procedures like checking the health of his gums, taking his pulse and knowing his normal heart rate can provide valuable information to a veterinarian in an emergency. Smart owners will also be prepared by keeping contact information of you veterinary clinic and emergency veterinary clinic handy. Among helpful first aid techniques: CHECK THE GUMS: Healthy gums are pink and oist. Pale, white or blue gums can signal a problem such as shock or anemia, which is a lowredcell count. The best way to check the gums is a centimeter above the canine. (A centimeter is about a half an inch.) Lift up your dog s muzzle and press lightly with your finger on the gum area above the canine tooth. It should return to a pick color within a couple seconds. TAKING THE PULSE: The number of heart beats per minute varies by size, with larger dogs having a lower rate. It s good to know your dog s normal rate. If it s usually 80 and now is 150, that can mean he s in trouble. A rapidly beating heart can indicate shock or pain. To take your dog s pulse, lay him on his right side. Then follow these steps: gently lift his upper hind leg away from the lower hind leg. Place two fingers as high up as possible on the inside of the leg where the leg meets the body. Feel for a recess in the middle of the leg about half way between the front and back. This is where the blood vessels are located and where you ll find the pulse. Count the number of pulses in 10 seconds and multiply that number by six to give you the beats per minute. If you are unsure about how to take the pulse, ask your veterinarian or vet technician to show you on your dog the next time you are in for a visit. CHECKING BREATHING IN AN UNCONSCIOUS DOG Place your hand on the dog s side to feel if the chest is moving up and down. You can also hold a mirror near his mouth. If it fogs up, he s breathing. If he s not, you may need to perform CPR in this order of priorities: Airway: Check the throat and mouth for foreign objects. Breathing: If your dog isn t breathing, place your mouth over his muzzle if he weighs more than 30 pounds. Seal his entire snout with your mouth if he weighs less than 30 pounds and gently exhale until you see the chest rise. Give four or five breaths rapidly and then check to see if your dog is breathing without assistance. circulation: If you can t detect a heartbeat or pulse, you ll need to perform chest compressions. Ask your veterinarian how to perform them STOPPING BLEEDING IN A WOUND If your dog is bleeding due to a cut or a bite, the first advice from Dr. Rozanski is: Don t Panic. Dogs have more blood than you think. Put pressure on the wound, but do not take it off to see if the bleeding has stopped. If you don t have a first-aid kit handy, a towel and duct tape work well. Always keep towels in your car. To vaoid being bitten when treating an injured, conscious, you can create a home-made muzzle by ripping strips from a towel or T- shirt. Approach the dog from the side, not directly head on and talk in a calm voice. (If the dog was hit by a car, make sure he s in a safe area and, if necessary, stop traffic.) Take a cloth strip and tie it around the dog s nose and then behind the ears. Even a sweet tempered dog with a brijeb oekvus ir itger ubhyrt nught bite. If you re able to treat the wound, it is better to not use peroxide to clean it. Dr. Rozanski says, Peroxide is bad for wounds. It delays healing. A better Alternative would be to use sterile solution or tap water. HELPING A DOG WHO IS CHOKING If your dog is choking on food or a toy and is conscious, approach him cautiously to avoid being bitten. Open his mouth and carefully Continued on page 11 Page 10

Los Ranchos Fest a Success By Jeff Robb Los Ranchos Canine Fest was fun! Many thanks to all who helped and showed up with their dogs. Special thanks to Susan McGowen, Suzanne Ratchener and three of Toi s agility students for helping load the truck Friday afternoon with equipment for the event. Also to Peggy Chandler, Jeanne Gill and Jerry Faulkner for helping unload the truck and put everything away on Saturday afternoon. Betty Pearce, Estelle and Danny Metz, Donna Sloan and Kathy Robb did some Obedience and Rally demos. Toi had an Beginning Agility class for a few of her students; Jeanne Gill set up a Rally course, and we had an Obedience course as well. Special thanks to Jinkle Seagrave who demonstrated Free-Style with her dogs. I m sure I forgot to mention someone, but believe me all the people who attended are thanked for their help. The weather was great and we had a very nice venue. Continued from page 10 Sweep the inside with your finger to dislodge the object. If you can t dislodge the object, you ll need to perform these abdominal thrusts: If you can lift your dog, hoist him by his front legs with his spine against your chest and wrap your arms around him under his ribs. Make a fist with one hand, place your other hand over your fist and give five rapid abdominal thrust, lifting your fist in an inward and upward motion. Just be gentle as you would working on a baby. If your dog is too big to lift, place him on his side. Put the palms of your hands below his rib cage and give 5 rapid abdominal thrust s in an inward and upward motion. Check his mouth to see if the object has been dislodged. If not, find veterinary help quickly. Page 11
