IWADV Public Education

2016 - TBA

2015 - All About Dogs

June 20th 10am to 3pm.

This year we will again have a booth (tent actually) at this public education event. It is a very relaxed day to hang out with your dogs and meet and greet the public. Setup is between 9 am and 9:30. Attached is their flyer. The location is Liberty Fire Company, 836 Ruth Street, Sinking Spring, PA 19608. Bring chairs.

Any member who wants to bring a hound or two is welcome to participate.  Anyone who wants to show up without hounds just to speak to the public and answer their questions about our breed is also welcome. Hounds should be fairly outgoing, ok with crowds, and enjoy attention from the public. No one has to stay the entire day - you can stay for as long as you like between 9-9:30 and 3:00. Contact Diane Camel at obeltane@verizon.net if you plan to attend and bring a dog (or two).

2010 Canine Learning Experience

IWADV has done it again! A terrific booth that was appreciated by the general public and the jurying committee of the CLE. We won 2nd prize in the Booth competetion. Chairman Donna Smith has consistantly come up with innovative ways to present our dogs. The dogs and people partipating had a great time.

2009 Canine Learning Experience

Canine Learning Experience - What is it?

IWADV won "Best Booth" at the CLE 2009, for three straight years!

The IWADV has manned a booth at this event for many years. It is a long day - about a dozen club members and their dogs meet & greet the public, answer questions, give out flyers and information packets, and generally promote understanding of our breed. This is primarily a spectator event, with a large number of the general public attending.

Much work has to go into the preparation of the booth - display materials and decorations have to be worked on every year. Awards are given by Lehigh Valley KC for the best booths, emphasizing the quality of the education aspects of a clubs presentation. The room is very full - and every year clubs are turned away due to space.
