On 6 July, the Club held it’s Northern Fun Day in Tholthorpe, Yorkshire. After some free play and games, we were pleased to welcome Caroline Penistone of CAST Dog Training, who took us through the basics of Treibball. None of our dogs have done this before, so it was great to be able to introduce them something new, which exercised both their brains and bodies at the same time. If you haven’t tried Triebball before and would like to give it a go, we’ve provisionally booked Caroline again for next year’s Northern Fun Day!
We’re a week into the walk and it’s going well. This weekend will see a big group walk in Dorney, Berkshire with a whole group of Entlebuchers getting together for Heidi. Today the activity was as follows:
Aristotle managed his best walk of the week and walked just over 2km. Salvo then walked 3.2km to the edge of the Marne region of France. Izzy’s 3.2km took us to the outskirts of Saint Mard sur le Mont. Wilma and Shadow added just over 2km each to take us close to Contault. After that we put on quite a spurt of distance – Floria, Bella and Heidi added 7.7km each and took us right as far as Chalons en Champagne, a stop many of us know from the times we drive the route. Sybil then added 3.2km and Basil an impressive 11.2km to finish the night at just past Vadenay. That’s now 263 miles of the 552 complete.
Please sponsor us to encourage us to finish the journey and maybe do a little more besides!

Tomorrow sees the launch of our 552 mile walk for Heidi. 20 dogs will be setting off on legs of the walk to cover the distance from Entlebuch in Switzerland to the Swiss Embassy in London. On 25th October 5 dogs will be doing a final leg of the walk and meeting the Swiss Ambassador. You can follow the progress of how far along the route they are by going to the Heidi Fundraising Page
