Dog club moves house

Adelaide Plains Kennel and Obedience Club (APKOC) is almost ready to move into its new home at Clara Harniman Reserve, Lewiston.

The dog obedience and training group has relocated from inner Two Wells to the large site and is inviting all those interested in learning more about the club to an open night on Wednesday, March 10 from 7pm.

While all facilities at the club are still in progress, with the concrete slab for the new clubhouse poured only last month and plumping set to be connected shortly, members are excited about what they can now offer at their new grounds.

APKOC secretary, Julie Lyon, said there had been much interest in the club since the new clubhouse went up, and there was great potential for dog showing, agility and obedience classes on the site, but there was still a lot of work to be done.

“The idea is that people can come here and see the blank space, and see what we’re up against to get it up and running,” Julie said.

“This could be ‘the’ place in the area for dogs, and it will be a dog place in its own right as it’s not shared with anyone.

“It’s all enclosed, there’s so much space, and so much potential.

“We are very excited about what we can do here in the future.”

The March 10 event will include a light supper, but be aware toilet facilities are not yet available at the site.
