November, 2018:

A small but staunch group of members represented BOTC in the Pet Food Warehouse sponsored Wag it Forward on Sunday, October 14, 2018. We had a booth providing information about AKC Obedience and Rally and did demonstrations of some portions of these sports.

Two members of the club also provided members of the community with information about working dogs. On Wednesday, November 7, 2018 Rio Demers and Ilene Morgan gave a public presentation at the Masonic Hall in South Hero on the subject of service dogs. Ilene, with Tracking Dog Bentley, has trained tracking dogs for over a decade. She explained various services these dogs provide and emphasized the commitment of dedicated handlers who train them. Rio, with Raice, affiliated with Wilderness Search Dogs, and Decker, a FEMA Rubble Search Dog, explained various training requirements relevant to these services. The presentation was designed to provide the audience with a broad picture of the various services provided by these dogs. Many people asked questions of the presenters and were amazed at the diverse talents and services provided by canines and the organizations and individuals that produce service dogs.
