Lure Course at Goldstock

We have some more information for the lure course now that we're getting everything set for this weekend.

Location will be in the field below the track. Please come check us out!

The course will be running Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11am to 5pm, and I'll be taking photos of the dogs running the course. If there's demand for running the course on Monday morning, we will open it then.

Cost is $10 per run OR $25 for a wristband that's good all weekend. Runs consist of about 7-8 laps for most adult dogs. Younger puppies (under 6 months) run fewer laps, and seniors (over 8 or so) also run fewer laps. You're welcome on the course with your dogs to help them along and encourage them.

Photos will be available to view and will be printed right at the course (unless I mess something up, LOL). For right now, it looks like I'll have 5x7 prints, 3.5x5 prints, and digital files available. Pricing will be between $15-$40 depending on what you select.

I do suggest that you put a collar or well-secured bandana on your dogs when they run to help with identification-- our dogs look alike when they're wet and when they're running.

See you all soon!

2018 Goldstock Golden Glove Baseball Game

Attention please!! Who is ready to play Goldstock Baseball???  I hope my kids and K-9 pro's from last year will be returning to play. 

If this is your first year to Goldstock then you need to know that this isn't just any old baseball game. It's... well.... baseball with a TWIST!! The dogs take the field with you!

Never played baseball before? That's okay! No experience is necessary! Can't catch a ball? That's okay too because there will probably be a golden just waiting for the chance to help you catch it. What's that you say? You can't hit a ball? Not to worry there is a ball T to use or our pitcher will throw the ball until you hit it. No problem. Don't worry, this game can be modified to include any child. If you have any questions or concerns you can ask us when you fill out your registration form. These are the following requirements we are looking for in our team mates;

1. Are you a kid? 

2. Do you love dogs?

3.  Do you have a pair of tennis shoes?

4. Do you love to laugh, have fun and make new friends?

5. Do you mind dog slobber? ( think of it as a spit ball)

If you answered yes to all of the above then you need to be on our team and meet us at the baseball field at 4 PM on Sunday afternoon.
