Canine Good Citizen Testing & Trick Dog Trials

See if your dog has what it takes to earn their Trick Dog Titles! We will be testing dog and handler teams for the AKC Trick Dog Titles. We can evaluate dogs at any and all levels, so if you know more than the minimum required tricks, you could earn multiple titles at one shot! We will also be evaluating dogs for the CGC at that time, by request.

ANY dog can participate and earn titles, as long as they have an AKC number (and ANY dog can apply for a number). If you need help figuring out if your dog has a number or not, let us know and we can help sort it out. We will be testing Leash Free Living dogs for free at this event, but there is an application fee that has to be mailed in to earn the certificate.

Rally Games

Get a taste of Rally obedience, and satisfy your competitive edge with our Rally Games Workshop!

Rally is a sport you can compete in with your dog. There are a series of signs, each with difference obedience tasks on them. You navigate the course with your dog while a judge keeps score.
