Club Events that we have organised as a club and                                                          others we think you might be interested in attending.

November 2018     Sun 11th – 10.30am     Club Walk – Golden Sands Beach, Papamoa Beach.                          There is a lovely walk along the stream with plenty of opportunities for the dogs to have a swim. Lots of off street parking by the Henry and Ted Cafe’ which is a short walk away or ample roadside parking (very wide road). Everyone will meet at the entrance way to the walking path by 39 Golden Sands Drive. Bring your thermos, something yummy to share if you want or just hang around afterwards with everyone and have a good catch up. There are no seats so you might want to bring a chair or blanket to sit on.

December 2018     Sat 15th – (tba)    Special Children’s Christmas Party – Greenlane, Auckland.                         This is an event for special needs children and their families where they are treated to a day of celebrity stage shows, fun rides, interactive games, plenty of yummy food, face painting and animals including dogs. The dogs need to be pretty bomb proof/non-reactive as it’s very, very noisy (kids screaming, live performances, police & ambulance sirens) but lots of fun and the dogs get oodles of cuddles. There is a Sponsors lounge open for refreshments upstairs and the dogs are welcome too. If you would like to be involved in this event to help put a smile on their faces please contact Michelle on or 021 644 943 as numbers/attendance will need to be confirmed and co-ordinated.

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.  Coming South come off at Neilson St exit, turn left in Selwyn, left again into Princes and straight ahead.)

April 2019       Early April TBC        Ribbon Parade/Mini Field Day, Pukekohe A&P Showgrounds,  Discussion at our last committee meeting resulted in a decision to organise a     “Mini Field Day” event as our next big project and fundraiser. This would be a Leonberger related event of course that could perhaps have a selection of Merchandise stands, Services e.g. massage and some demonstrations e.g. grooming. We are following that idea up, contacting suppliers and other breed clubs and hope to keep you all updated with progress reports.  This is a completely NEW concept for the club but could be a winner so watch this space!

July 2019       TBC              Club Championship Show.                                                                                                       This event is still being coordinated so the date, location and time will be provided as details become available.
