Schutzhund Dog’s Support Red Friday
In March 2006, wear Red on Fridays to show your support to the Canadian troops, was introduced by two Canadian military service spouses.
In February 2007, our club the West Coast German Shepherd Schutzhund Club started a tradition to show our support to our Canadian soldiers, during our annual invitational Schutzhund dog training event each year. To have all participants to wear Red on Friday’s either a shirt, Jacket or just a ribbon.
This year on Friday 25th February 2011, we took the support one step further, our invitational souvenir shirts were all in red for each participant.
We explained to all participants what the meaning to wear Red on Friday’s meant to us and to Canadians, and then come Friday morning, All participant, on the field training dogs were dressed in Red souvenir shirts to show their support to all soldiers.
The participants who attended the invitational annual schutzhund training event were from, across Canada, Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, and the Yukon the United States of America, California, to Florida.
We have been supporting the troops at out club every Friday since we started, and we hope to keep up this tradition for many years to come.
Thanks to our troops deployed and at home.
