Lucky Ticket Raffle

Once again the Walk ‘n’ Wag will include the Lucky Ticket Raffle. If you came to our walk last year, you will remember this raffle from all the noise we made. Were you lucky? Did you play?

Raffle tickets are 4 for a $1.00! If you open the ticket and it is blank, it’s not a winning ticket.

BUT, if you open up your ticket and there is a number with a stamp on top, YOU win the prize labeled with that number! INSTANT GRATIFICATION!  No more waiting for a number to be called! Take the prize with you when you leave the table! 

We need and so very much appreciate donated items to make our raffle a success. Nothing is too big or small! It can be pet OR people related, Items do not have to be expensive; they can be of every price range and appropriate not only for GSDs, but for
all types of pets and of course humans!

Items such as limo rentals, tickets to events, gift certificates to restaurants, pet stores, human stores, hotels, dinners, etc. are sure to draw a crowd! We could also use gift cards from Dunkin’ Donuts, Petco and PetSmart ($10 and $15 range). A good mix makes the day.

Canine Good Citizen Testing (CGC)

Once again, GSRNE will offer Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Testing during our Walk ‘n’ Wag fundraiser.

Started in 1989, Canine Good Citizen (CGC) is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community.

The CGC Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

The fee for the CGC test is $20.00. Please bring your dog’s brush to be used as part of the test.

CGC testing is scheduled from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. You can sign up for CGC testing at the Activity Booth next to the Registration Booth on the day of the Walk ‘n’ Wag.

You can also preregister for testing. If you would like to schedule your dog for a CGC test now, send an email to walknwag@gsrne.org and put “CGC” in the subject line.
