Trash Pick-up areas GCDOC


This is a Gentle Reminder for old timers and/or information for those who
may not be aware. Members who enjoy the privilege of training when classes
are not in session must sign in and out. There is a clip board with pink
sign in papers near the sink, also near the sheet you sign in and out on to
have your hours recorded. Should you bring a non-member guest, they are
required to pay $5. Collect the money and put it in the treasurer box in
the store room with a note on it. Thank you.

Straw Bales Clearance Sale!!

There are about 20-30 bales left inside the Faulkner building. We need the rest of the straw removed so we can clean the building out for other classes.

75 cents per bale and 50 cents per bag of fluff. Put your money in an envelope marked straw and leave in the treasure’s box at Northcutt.

Please email me to let me know you bought straw so we can get started cleaning.

Use of the Agility Room!!

It came to my attention yesterday that someone was in the turf room or allowed their dog to wander in there between the time our agility class left at 9pm on Thursday and 2:30pm on Friday . Someone’s dog pooped in the turf room and it was not cleaned up.

PLEASE be aware of where your dogs are. Clean up after your dogs. If this continues there is video that can be reviewed.

Thank you for your attention to this matter in the future.

Tidy our club property on the outside:

  • You select your time to tidy (before a class or trial, after a class or trial, on your way to lunch on Miller Lane);
  • Choose your preferred section (see the map) and sign up online.
  • Sections should tidy quickly but you will receive 1 hour credit for the effort!
  • We ask for a 1 month commitment (work around your schedule) and tidy every 2 weeks.
  • Any dog messes go in our “potty cans” and trash sacks can come into the club if it is open. The dumpster is kept locked so, if no one has the building open, please take the trash home with you.

This program runs from May 15, 2019 to November 1, 2019 (or until revised by the Board of GCDOC).

New Phone Number

Due to an unforeseen bankruptcy from our phone provider, we have had to change our phone number. I’ve attempted to update all the places on the internet where it is listed, but it may possibly take a few days to properly update. The website is now current with the new phone number. If in a week or more you discover our old number online somewhere, please either update it yourself or contact me at

The new phone number is (937) 867-0406 . It is a voice mail only number.
