Comments:North East Rottweiler Rescue & Referral holds its 1st annual Rockin? Rottie Poker Run Saturday, May 13th, 2006, at the Tramontin Harley-Davidson Dealership in Hope NJ. Last year, this event was attempted three times, but foiled by mother nature?

This year, NERR&R has joined forces with another local rescue group:11th Hour Rescue, of Rockaway, NJ. This joint effort will be one of their biggest fund raising events of the year, featuring LIVE entertainment plus lots of food and fun for Hog & Dog lovers.
Cash and prizes totaling over $800.00 for participants! Stuffed goodie bags (including a patch) will be given out to the first 150 registered riders. Enjoy the beautiful 60 mile country side ride, then draw your poker hand at the end of the ride.

Along with the poker run, there will be many vendors, artists, door prizes of all kinds, and much much more. This is also Tramontin?s big Open House event, which offers a full day of enjoyment for the entire family.

The Poker Run will leave from the Tramontin Harley-Davidson Dealership, located conveniently off Route 80W at exit #12 in Hope NJ, easy access for both NJ and PA riders alike. Registration for the poker run begins at 9 a.m and the guided tour leaves at 11:00am. Each rider helps defray the cost to save a homeless dog, provide medical treatment, and helps them on their way to finding their forever home. We thank you in advance for your contribution.

Cost is $20 per participant & pre-registration is available thru May 10th (see www.rottrescue.org for pre-registration form) Patches are also available for a cost of $5.00 to those not able to attend, call toll free 866 392 0102 for more info.

In order to socialize your puppy you must introduce anything that they will encounter in their adult life in a positive way. Why do we do it? We socialize dogs as puppies to help turn them into confident adult dogs that can be taken anywhere. Your puppy's first associations are formed at 8-16 weeks of age this is a very small window. Our socialization sessions will include letting the dogs play off-leash to help puppies learn appropriate play, good bite inhibition and develop good puppy skills. Special emphasis will be paid to meeting strangers, and introduction into new environments.
