GPSCO 2010 Events

Here is a summary of GPCSO 2010 events.

Spring is in the air once again and we look forward to a busy schedule of events with our dogs.  This is a very special year since it marks the 75th anniversary of the first showing of a Great Pyr in Canada.  Yes, although our breed dates back some 4000 years, it is a relative newcomer to the show ring in Canada and the USA.  So get your calendars and mark these dates. We wouldn't want to miss any of these wonderful events now would we?

  • April 2, 3 and 4, 2010

All About Pets at the Toronto International Centre, 6900 Airport Road, Mississauga, Ontario (Corner of Derry Road and Airport Road).  If you love pets, you will love this show.  While you're there don't forget to drop by our GPCSO booth and say: "Hello."  We'd love to see you and you and our Great Pyrs will too!

Annual Spring Pot Luck Lunch and Dog Walk

    WHERE: Carol Graham’s home #5039 4th Line, R. R. #2, Acton, Ontario
    (519) 853-3005

    WHEN: Sunday, May 30, 2010

    WHY: Just because!! It is spring and the perfect time to get outdoors, meet old friends, renew acquaintances and make new friends. Of course owners get to do this as well.

    WHO: ALL GREAT PYRENEES are welcome. Their owners can come if they want. Great Pyrenees are also very hospitable and welcome any other dogs who wish to attend. So don't be shy.  Come join the fun and meet folks from the GPCSO.

    TIME: 12:00 P.M. (Noon)

    Bring your favourite food for sharing, don your hiking boots and come out for some socialization. As it has not been a hard winter (unlike times in the past) we are hopeful that we will have gorgeous weather – not too hot or too cold, the ground will be mud free and there will be no flies or mosquitoes.

Canine Good Neighbour Testing while you attend our Annual Spring Pot Luck Lunch and Dog Walk.

Is your dog a Good Neighbour? Do you know? Well, this is your chance to find out.

The C.K.C. allows for testing of all dogs (both pure bred and non-purebred) as a good neighbour. This test is devised to assess your relationship with your dog and your ability to control him or her. IT IS NOT A COMPETITION!! Your dog is evaluated on its ability to perform basic exercises and to demonstrate good manners while out in public.

We will be holding a Canine Good Neighbour Testing for all interested parties at our Annual Walk. The test takes approximately 10 - 15 minutes per dog. The Testing will take place starting at 10:00 a.m., prior to the luncheon. The cost is $20.00 per dog. (Cash or cheques only- payable at the time of testing) Dogs passing the test receive a Certificate from the C.K.C.

In addition, you may want to purchase a Badge of Merit ($5.00) or a Canine Good Neighbour Tag for your dog’s collar ($12.50). Both will be available for purchase after completion of testing.
