Our judges are Elise Carpenter (Starters thru Masters) and Lois Mark(supervising).  All levels are offered each day plus a Masters Challenge Biathlon.

The trial site is under cover on dirt at the pleasant and relaxing Hog Dog Productions site in Millersville, MD.  This site offers plenty of room to run your dog when you’re not in the ring as well as parking for cars, tent campers, and RV’ers.

Entry fees for the titling classes are the typical low cost of $14 per titling class and for each round of the Masters Challenge Biathlon.

For those new to the sport or those who would like the opportunity to train in a competition setting, we are offering Intro Standard and Intro Jumpers classes (either for titling or FEO) at $8/class.

Never tried a USDAA trial before?  Let the trial secretary know if you would like to have a mentor available at the trial.  It’s a one-ring trial and we’ll have plenty of experienced exhibitors to give you a hand.

As with all USDAA trials, entries are unlimited, as long as the entry is received by the closing date of March 12, 2016.

This trial is held in one ring on Sprinturf at the Oriole Dog Training Club building in Halethorpe and our judge is Tami McClung.  This is our annual laid-back tournament-only trial with all four of the tournaments spread out over 2 days:

Sat: Grand Prix/PGP, 3 Team/PVP classes (Gamblers, Standard, and Jumpers)
and Masters Challenge Biathlon Standard

Sun: Masters Challenge Biathlon Jumpers, 2 Team/PVP classes (Snooker and Relay), followed
by Rounds 1 & 2 of Steeplechase/PSJ

In addition to the usual fun prizes for the first place teams, special prizes are also awarded to the High-Scoring Rookie teams in the DAM and PVP tournament (a ‘rookie’ team is defined as any team containing at least one dog who is showing in Starters or P1 Standard).

If you’re not sure how to form a team for this event, check out the Agility Team Finder page:

Or… you can enter as a draw and you will be placed on a team.  Note when entering draw that it is often helpful to include a note about what kind of teammates you are looking for.  For example, you might want teammates who will be trying to get a Q or even a placement, or you might prefer to be placed on a team with other dogs looking for more experience competing.

Entries are unlimited.
