Seasons Greetings Everyone!
It’s always difficult this time of year to find time to do
everything we have to do, but I’m always amazed that Club
members find time to fit so many Club activities into their
already busy schedules.
Classes are winding down and will wrap up in early December
thanks to everyone who stepped in to offer to be instructors
and assistants.
The SPCA Pet Expo presented another opportunity to make
the Club more visible in the community while supporting the
Fredericton SPCA. Organizer extraordinaire Valerie Noel
worked her usual magic and Club members responded in
numbers. The set-up committee did a wonderful job and
presented the best booth ever; the booth was manned by at
least two Club members the whole weekend, and the Rally
demonstrations were amazing as well, drawing in spectators to
give it a try.
The Santa Claus parade will be Saturday November 28 on
Fredericton’s northside. Special Events coordinator Valerie
has lots of plans, and as usual, Club members have responded
with their usual enthusiasm.
The Club’s Christmas party will be held on Saturday,
December 5 at Oakland Farm & Lodge. It is always a fun night
for Club members to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
Training time should be coming up – keep an eye on your
RVO Group e-mail for available dates and times. There should
also be further opportunities in January and beyond.

SPCA Pet Expo
Valerie Noel did her usual excellent job of organizing RVO’s booth at the recent SPCA Pet Expo. Valerie’s decorating team out‐did themselves and the booth looked awesome. Club members turned out in force to “man” the booth, to do demonstrations for the event, and to generally support the event. RVO donated a basket of doggy goodies and a Gentle Leader along with a lesson in its use from Sue Wishart for the Silent Auction. Well done everyone – your assistance and participation is appreciated by RVO and by the Fredericton SPCA. On the web: rivervalleyobedienceclub.ca

An awesome group of people and dogs attended the recent Wag‐It games seminar in Presque Isle, Maine with Sumac Grant‐Johnson. Sumac is an engaging, enthusiastic and motivating speaker and trainer who shared her philosophy and training ideas during the two‐day seminar. Sumac is the originator of the Wag‐It games that aim to make competing with your dog more fun. From Trish Eagan: I would like to thank all of you who voted for Rosi in the Algonquin pet photo contest in the spring. We took advantage of our prize ‐ a nights stay at the end of October. They treated Rosi like royalty, she even had turn down service with fresh water and homemade biscuits delivered to the room. Also I have a wonderful update on her health. Her most recent blood work has come back 100% clean. She seems to be back to herself, which is such a big relief. Thanks for all of your well wishes and support. Trish and Rosi The Infrequent Flyer
December 2015
What?! December ALREADY?!?
It’s hard to believe it's December; even harder to believe that it has been TEN years since we opened our doors in 2005. We were a
small store with three employees and a shoestring budget, but our primary focus has always been to provide safe, healthy, speciesappropriate food for our customers’ pets.
We cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support of our “unique & independent” shop. Because of YOU, dear customer, we
have been able to thrive in a challenging retail environment. American retailers have had a profound impact
on the Canadian retail landscape and we are proud to say that we have been able to carve out our own niche despite all of the
franchises and supercentres that have come to Fredericton since we opened. We appreciate that you spend your hard-earned dollars at
the ONLY independent, locally-owned pet supply store in Fredericton… we feel the love and we hope that you do too!

Executive meeting: Sue Wishart reported that the Executive met on October 24 to discuss the credit system for
instructors/assistants. Discussions included various options: limiting use of credits to educational purposes related to

$1500 for instructors, $500 for assistants. They executive will be meeting again when everyone is available to make
recommendations to bring to a meeting. Sue commented that it was very useful to have the input of Karen Pelletier, the
new Vice-President since she has not been involved with the credit system previously and she can look at the issue with
fresh eyes.

OLD BUSINESS:
-Educational presentations before meetings: Sue will contact the Education Committee to see if they can make
arrangements for these as requested at the annual meeting.
NEW BUSINESS:
-Y’s Men’s Club: The Y’s Men are having financial difficulties at the Heritage Centre; they have let the cleaner go and will
be doing the cleaning in teams on a rotation basis. They will be holding extra fund-raisers as well.
-Dates for fun matches: Sue will check with Mark White about available dates for our free Saturdays for fun matches.
She will try for one in January, followed by one before the CARO trial and one in June.
-Wag-It Games: Sue gave a brief run-down of the Wag-It games seminar several Club members had attended in
Presque Isle the previous weekend. The weekend dealt with different games and heeling patterns. Some do require
special equipment, like steps and ladders, but it was an interesting learning weekend. Sue had lots of ideas for new
exercises and games.
-Training time will be available after classes end in December until classes resume in January. The plan is to leave one
evening free for Club members to practice during the January and April sets of classes. This will require someone willing
to organize opening, set up and cleanup.
MOTION to adjourn: Heather MacLeod
