Club Events that we have organised as a club and others we think you might be interested in attending.
February 2019 Sat 9th – 9.30am Muriwai Club Walk – Muriwai Beach, Auckland. This is a great walk with access to the river so the dogs will be able to have lots of swims and keep cool. We will meet at the car park on the right, opposite the horse tracks on the left, at the Coast Road Entrance.
March 2019 Sat 2nd – 12 noon Redwoods Club Walk, Rotorua. There is an off leash park that is more open than the Redwoods themselves (same place, just the other side of the road) & it’s a nice walk to the river for a swim then back again with plenty of space. The Scion Dog Park is opposite the Redwoods information centre on Long Mile Road.
March 2019 Sun 3rd – 9am Groynes Water Fun Morning, Groynes Dog Park, Christchurch. Join us at 9am to walk along the fabulous off leash areas at the Groynes Dog Park then finish up with a swim in the water area (to wash off muddy areas they have found along the way).Meet at the entrance to the dog park areas by the car park. This event is being organised by Sarah Chisnall so if you have any questions please email her firstname.lastname@example.org
March 2019 Sat 16th – 10am Hawarden A & P Show, North Canterbury. The Leo Club have been invited to showcase our wonderful breed at this year’s Hawarden Show in North Canterbury. Planning is underway to have them in the Grande Parade and how magnificent would they look. There will be water, shelter and paddling pools to keep them comfortable for the day (and an off site venue if they get too overwhelmed!). This will be an on lead event and the dogs will need to be ok around other animals. Prior registration will be needed for this event for planning and ticketing purposes so please RSVP as soon as possible to Sarah Chisnall email@example.com
March 2019 Sun 17th – 10am-3pm Leo Gala, RDA Arena, 8 Alpha St, Cambridge. This will be a fabulous day with live music, face painting, sausage sizzle, demonstration, sales, stalls and heaps of games for dogs and handlers. We’re inviting other giant breeds to pit their skills against Leos just to up the ante so we hope you can make it. Come join in the fun! Only $10 family fee to enter the challenges.
March 2019 Sun 24th – 12 noon Club Walk at Onehunga Reserve. This is a great off leash park with a lagoon for the dogs to swim in. The loop walk is lovely going over a pedestrian bridge over the motorway to the harbour side of the Manukau, then a new board walk and then back over the motorway and down into the park again. (Directions: Bottom of Beachcroft Ave, Onehunga. Coming North, head on m/way 20 to Onehunga, come off at Neilson St exit, around to left and straight on as if you are going to the Mall, turn left into Princes St which takes you to bottom of Beachcroft.

April 2019 Sat 11th – 1pm Club Walk Sanders Reserve, Poremoremo, Auckland. Meet in the upper car park before walking down and through the fully fenced off leash area. Then walk through the reserve to the beach for a swim.
