Kapiti Photo Shoot and Club Walk

Following the launch of the Kapiti Dog Training Club Face book page earlier this year; we have been working on a new club website and this is due to be launched soon.

For the website, we need your help to provide a great visual display portraying the diverse variety of dogs attending our Tuesday domestic classes, we also need images of those who do other activities like Obedience, Rally-O, Tracking and Scent work

The plan is to meet up at 9:15 am on Sunday 15th September for a photo shoot. The meeting place is just inside the Tutere St entrance to the Waimanu lagoon on the Waikanae river mouth.

To ensure a great result, we have organised Jo Moore photography http://jomoorephotographer.co.nz/ to be on hand to take photos.

  • There will be a formal group beach shot for handlers with dogs on lead. Handlers please wearing club colours, for those who don’t do club clothing please wear blue.
  • For those who can manage a formal sit stay off lead; There will be another beach group shot with just dogs only.
  • After this, we want lots of photos of you with your dog on lead just having fun together. (No blue dress code for this) Some on the beach and some on the grass and some on walking tracks. This will be really relaxed and no stress; we just want to show the great variety of dogs who come to our Tuesday training. Past members are welcome, as are those who have previously attended our training classes and competition events.
  • For any Tracking and Scent work teams, bring along your harnesses and leads.

Following this, we will have an organised dog on lead walk. The route will be upriver on the Waikanae side, crossing the road bridge and returning on the Otaihanga side. We will re cross the river again on the swing bridge at the Otaihanga domain. Jo will be in attendance to get some photos on route.

The walk will be casual on lead and is intended to be fun only, it will provide a good variety of scenarios to assist you and your dog gain experience in a public area.

To finish off; If you would like a commissioned individual portrait photo, Jo Moore will be happy to take this for you. Event rates are for prints are:

6 x 4"          $10.00
5 x 7.5"       $15.00
8 x 12"        $40.00

We intend to organise more walks over the spring, summer and autumn months. These will be advertised on Facebook, via the new website and on the club notice board at the training grounds.
