Hi everyone. My name is Gwen Haynes and I am honored to be taking on the role of Performance Chair for the RCC. I have many years of experience in the performance venues. I was instrumental in ensuring that the RCC was sanctioned with CKC for the draft dog trials, herding trials and tracking (both field and urban). I have put on many performance events for the RCC and for other dog clubs. I have also helped in planning and on putting on fundraising activities some of which have been Temperament Tests, CGNs and Herding Instinct Tests.
I am constantly training and trialing my own dogs in various performance venues and have enjoyed some great successes with them. My goals for the RCC while in this role as Chair will be to put on an urban and field tracking test for 2018, as well as a draft dog test and stand alone obedience and rally trials for 2018. If you have any suggestions or recommendations with respect to how the RCC can improve in this area or with respect to a performance event you would like to see the RCC be able to host, please contact me. Always open for suggestions and assistance.
