Turkeyfest – June 18th & 19th

On Saturday & Sunday, the club hosted an information tent at Turkeyfest in Strathroy. We had assistance dogs that were graduates of the Lions Foundation Canada Dog Guide training school in Oakville, Ontario.  There was a hearing assistance dog, a vision assistance dog, a seizure response dog, and two breeding Labrador moms who have since retired after producing up to 5 litters each over their productive span.
