General membership meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month at the Laurel Manor regional recreation center at 4pm.
PLEASE NOTE: No membership meetings are held in May, June, July, August and December.
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20TH @ 3pm is the next meeting of the Dynamic Dog Club. This meeting has been moved up a week due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. We will be meeting at Laurel Manor recreation center.
Our special guest will be "Tucker", a beautiful black Labrador Retriever. This adorable pup is our current sponsored Patriot Service Dog-in-training at the Lowell Correctional Facility, a women's prison, in Ocala, Florida. Due to his training schedule and required medical appointments (vaccinations and neutering), he has not been able to join us at our meetings until now.
Tucker will be 1 year old on December 14th so It's a perfect time for a Birthday Party! Please come join us for this celebration, complete with a special Birthday Cake and drinks.
Mike Appelbaum of Patriot Service Dogs, will be giving us an update on Tucker's progress and his adventures outside the prison as he is exposed to real life experiences. Tucker will be well prepared for his destiny as a service dog for a disabled veteran when he graduates in the summer of 2021. Tucker's zest for life and enthusiasm has earned him the title of "Class Clown"!!
There will be "up close" time with Tucker so bring your camera.
Our charity for this meeting is the Leesburg no-kill shelter. Your donations of new or gently used items are always very appreciated. (towels, dog beds, toys, leashes, food, treats, etc....)
Friends are always welcome at our meetings with a Village or Guest ID. (no dogs at this meeting)
Come join us at this special meeting!
