The Dog Olympix 2018 is a fantastic idea for a fundraiser for an Outdoor Drinking Water Fountain for people and dogs in Whittington Park, London N19. £6K is needed to fund the fountain and labour costs. Islington council are making an application on behalf of this and other parks to the London Mayor’s outdoor water drinking fund, so The Dog Olympix 2018 is looking to raise as much as it can in one day towards a fountain for Whittington Park.
The Dog Olympix 2018 is on the 8th September 2018 and consists of three games:
Catch the Ball
Agility and Obedience course
Anyone with a dog can register and enter. Dogs and owners can come along any Sunday in Whittington Park at 11am for an informal training session and to have a go / try out the course and skills needed. See The Dog Olympix 2018 website for more info: http://archwaydogs.uk/dogolymp
Sunday 2nd September @ 11am in Whittington park. This will be an informal session on a smaller circuit than the finals on 2nd September. Anyone can enter and join in the practice sessions and semifinals. However, only 20 dogs can be chosen to take part in the games on 8th September.
To be selected, you must meet the standard of working your dog off lead for the games. Come along on Sundays mornings to prepare and practise and register to take part. You can also email to register your interest. There will be a nominal registration fee to take part in the games.
Sue Evans from The Alpha Dog Club will be the judge for the 3 games along with Highgate vet Allan Rapley. The Blue cross will have a medic van there to health check dogs and offer free microchipping. All dogs must be on leads.
