The Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club would like to enter a team in the annual Dog Obedience Clubs of Florida (DOCOF) competition and is looking for club members who would like to participate.
MFGRC members and dogs are needed to compete in Novice, Open and Utility classes, and dogs do not have to be titled in those classes to be eligible to compete. Also, Veteran dogs are welcomed on the team and will be able to jump their preferred jump height.
In addition, two club members are asked to volunteer to steward a half for the team.
DOCOF is an association of clubs and training schools from across the State of Florida who gather together every Labor Day weekend to share stories, food and have the annual Team Obedience friendly competition. The organization’s goals are to promote humane dog obedience training through the cooperation of all member organizations throughout Florida, and encourage sportsmanlike competition.
The DOCOF Competition is the only one of its kind in the United States with more than 30 teams gathering from around the state.
The competition will be held on Sunday, Sept. 2, at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Fla. Setup and practice will be the previous day. Each new Exhibitor gets a DOCOF pin, and each Exhibitor gets a year bar to add to that pin every year.
Interested club members are asked to contact team manager Deena Strauss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
