Toronto, April 28, 2016 - The Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) is proud to welcome Subaru Canada, Inc. as the titlle sponsor of both Agility Team Canada and the Top Dogs program.
Subaru’s contribution will support Agility Team Canada’s mission to promote the sport of agility and purebred dogs across Canada and internationally, in addition to training excellence and positive relations between dogs, handlers and team members.
“We are thrilled to have Subaru on board,” said Lance Novak, CKC Executive Director. “Subaru’s generous support provides CKC with a tremendous opportunity to not only showcase the Agility Team, Top Dogs and their handlers, but also promote the human-animal bond and benefits from participating in the many events CKC has to offer.”
The Subaru Top Dogs program is a valued and highly anticipated aspect of the Canadian dog fancy. The time, dedication and training of these canine athletes and their handlers are all part of a healthy lifestyle and integral to their success in Top Dog events.
“Subaru takes great pride in promoting active, healthy lifestyles and dog ownership is part of that. Subaru Agility Team Canada and all of those who compete and reach Top Dog status each year exemplify how dog ownership contributes to a healthy lifestyle. We believe Subaru and the CKC are a great fit and look forward to working with them,” said Subaru’s Director of Marketing, Joe Felstein.
The CKC works hard to support our members by providing value, benefits and rewards. Our new partnership with Subaru to support the Agility Team and our Top Dogs program is just one example of our efforts on that front.
