Throughout the year we hold three regular Schapannro events. These events are open to all Schapendoes and their familes. We also welcome families who are considering a Schapendoes as a future family member. They are great places to meet lots of Schapendoes of all ages and talk to the families of these wonderful dogs.
Schapannro Winter Walk - January 27th, 2018 - 1 pm to 3 pm or so
Our Schapannro Winter Walk is scheduled for Saturday, January 27th, 2018 at the Heart Lake Conservation Area (10818 Heart Lake Road in Brampton, ON). We will meet at the parking lot at the entrance at 1 pm and will walk with the dogs for about 1 hour followed by coffee/tea/hot chocolate and goodies. Please RSVP by January 20th either by email or call Anne (416-420-3425) or Robert (416-347-7796).
Schapannro August Get Together - August 18th
Our Schapannro August Get Together for 2018, is Saturday, August 18th. We will have grooming lessons, some fun Agility runs, and a Fishing Derby in our pond.
During the winter (generally in late January) we hold our winter walk at the Heart Lake Conservation area in Brampton. The dogs especially enjoy this walk as they love frollicking in the snow. The people enjoy the refreshments at the end in the parking lot provided by Rob - including hot coffee, tea and chocolate and maybe a cookie or sweet as well as the social aspect of getting to know other Schapendoes owners.
During summer we have our August Get Together attended by Schapendoes lovers far and wide. Over the years we have held our Get Together at some wonderful properties. In 2015, and for the coming years, we will be holding it at our own 2 acre homestead complete with large pond (many of our Schapendoes love to swim or cool off). Robert provides an amazing lunch including bbq (beef burgers, chicken burgers, hot dogs, sausages), an assortment of interesting salads, other culinary surprises (pulled pork or macaroni and cheese). It is a wonderful social occasion for both people and dogs.
In October we hold our fall walk on the Caledon Trailway. It is a nice easy walk that will accommodate strollers and the colours are just lovely at that time. The trail follows a creek so again our water-loving Schapendoes are in their element. Afterwards we hit a local restaurant for those who've worked up an appetite for an amazing brunch. The restaurant is always accommodating clearing an area for us to sit as a group. More socializing for us people while the dogs relax in the cars after their walk.
