We want to thank everyone that came out to the Astro Air Dogs Open House event! We had over 60 dog and handler teams compete! Each pup enjoyed their first jump free, and from those who added additional jumps for $5 per jump, we were able to raise $260 to benefit the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit. We also want to give a special shout-out to our wonderful judge, Dean Lake, and the demo’s, Deb & Laurie, who attended the event with their fabulous dogs. Here are the event results:
*Youth Division
1. Jaden Stepp & Mojo – 23′
*Large Dog Division
1. David Stepp & Mojo – 30′
2. Patrice Hoerster & Cali – 18’4″
3. Kenny Morgan & Goose – 17′
*Small Dog Division
1. Julie Jones & Benny – 11’4″
2. Madison Nagel & Freya – 4’6″
Congratulations to our winners! Stay tuned for event pictures and details on our next dock diving event coming up this summer!

#TipTuesday – How trendy is your pup?

Tip Tuesday 3-15-16

What we put in our body matters. We go to great lengths to make sure all our 2,000 parts stay healthy. We drink stuff called “kombucha” and pay $80 for protein powders. So why don’t we do the same for our dogs? Often times we hear people say they feed only the best food to their dog but then come to find out they give them cheap dog treats (even at the bank drive-thru, it still counts, people!) or even worse… table food! So do your dog a favor; come on down and check out our treat selection. We offer grain-free, raw, and organic treat options. They’re just as good as the “best food” you’re feeding and there’s no “kombucha” or protein mixing required!

#TipTuesday – Is your pup a Canine Good Citizen?

test

Is your dog a Canine Good Citizen? The CGC program is one of the fastest growing in the American Kennel Club. Becoming a Canine Good Citizen means that your dog has passed a 10-step test administered by a registered evaluator. This test includes skills like walking on a loose leash, approaching a stranger, heeling through a crowd, sit, down, stay, recall, reaction to distractions, and supervised separation. This is a non-competitive test that is open to all dogs and handlers. Our Intermediate Obedience (CGC) class will teach you and your dog all the skills involved in the Canine Good Citizen Test. You will have the option after the class to complete the test with your dog. Dogs who are registered with the AKC can have the CGC title added to their registration. Training is always beneficial for your dog, but the CGC certificate takes that a step further. “Veterinarians have recognized the benefits of well-trained dogs and there are some CGC programs in place in veterinary hospitals. State legislatures began recognizing the CGC program as a means of advocating responsible dog ownership and 34 states now have Canine Good Citizen resolutions.” Our next CGC class begins Saturday, February 6th at 2:00pm. For more information or to sign-up for class give us a call at 864-297-9636!
