New Public Health Orders

Good evening everyone! We have been keeping updated on the most current health orders and I felt an update is definitely in order.

 Our policy has always been:

1. GECDOC follows CDC recommendations and state mandates. 

2. If you feel ill, please don’t come to the class/event. 

3. If you suspect that you have been exposed or that you have COVID-19, please let us know and we will discretely refund your money for trial fees or missed classes.

 4. GCDOC is not responsible for any illness you may have contracted while at our facility. 

Our policy will remain the same.

The newest orders from Governor Mike DeWine state that anyone that has been fully vaccinated may now enter public places without face covering. Anyone has not been vaccinated must continue to wear a face covering until June 2. On June 2, all health orders are ending. This means after that date, everyone is free to enter without a mask or face covering. Until then, please follow the mask mandate accordingly.

Please see this link for the latest statement from the Governor.

Please remember these are the state guidelines which we have followed since the beginning. I hope this email will clear up any confusion.

Thank you

Angela Profitt – President

Volunteers Needed!! – Freestyle

Our musical freestyle team is looking for an awards chair and a raffle chair for the upcoming freestyle shows scheduled for July 24 & 25, then October 30 & 31. We’d love someone who would hang out on the committee long-term, but are happy with even just having someone for a little bit of time.

The awards chair would be in charge of accepting and organizing awards donations, possibly reaching out for awards donations (if you feel adventurous), making award sheets for the judge and score keeper, submitting a list of awards with their donor to our catalog chair, and tracking award recipients for submission to WCFO. We love and encourage creativity, and would love if our awards chair could make award certificates, but this is not a requirement.

The raffle chair does not need to he present for the entire show, but it is a lot of work leading up to the shows and we would love for you to come be a part of our sport. The raffle chair is someone who accepts and organizes our raffle baskets. We would really like someone who is proficient with Excel/Google Spreadsheets, as our raffle will he done electronically. We would love for you to be present at the shows, as well, to accept money and organize the electronic submission of raffles.

Both of these positions can have as much support as you like/need from the trial chairs and the rest of the trial committee.

Please reach out to Ashley Huehn at and/or Jessa Kenworthy at if interested.

Volunteer Needed – virtual library presentation

Hello everyone, 
I need a volunteer or two to represent the club at a virtual library presentation.  Here is the description give to me by the library:
Our summer reading club theme this year is “Tails and Tales” so we thought that this sort of program would be a great fit!  We’re interested in a one time virtual (Zoom) program, lasting no more than an hour, where patrons can ask questions about their personal dog concerns, although if it seems popular, there’s certainly the possibility of bringing it back.  Because this would be part of summer reading, we’d like to have it in either June or July.  We’re pretty flexible as to when this would take place.  For best attendance, evenings (probably 6:30-7:30) Mon, Tues, Wed or Thurs or sometime during the day on a Saturday would be good.  There will be a small remuneration for the presenter.

This is a great outreach for the club and some easy volunteer hours. Let me know if you are interested. Email is

Membership Meeting Reminder

There will be a membership meeting tonight at 7:30. Please remember to bring your face covering and chair! Please be respectful of others and ask before sitting too close. I know we have groups who train together and/or been vaccinated and are comfortable being close but some of us are not comfortable with it yet.

See you tonight!
