The SVSSC Picnic will occur on Sunday, June 16 (Father’s Day) at Arden Park, 1000 La Sierra Dr., Sacramento (off Watt, near Fair Oaks Blvd.).

At 10 a.m. an AKC Judge will conduct Trick Dog Novice and Canine Good Citizen judging. The picnic follows.

This is a Potluck Picnic. Bring a dish (appetizer/chips/dips, main course, salad or dessert) to share and your own beverages to drink (alcoholic beverages are allowed in the park).

If coming, please report what you plan to share by emailing Joanne Duff at

The picnic will be under a covered pavilion, though folding chairs, x-pens, water bowls are recommended.

If you have any lawn games, such as lawn darts, or bean bag toss or baseball mitts, please bring them. There’s also access to play horseshoes and a swimming pool is available for $3 per swimmer.

This will be a time for us to Sheltie owners and their families to get together with our dogs, relax and get to know one another.

Please call Joanne Duff at (916)362-7589 for answers to questions.
