Wrapup for the Fall 2018 Trial

DeedraSnap.PNGWonderful & Wet, in that order, summarizes this year’s trial for Saturday & Sunday respectively.  Photographer Deedra Prigel was able to capture some of the wonderful on Saturday & you should check out her album of photos.  Most dogs loved the weather on Sunday — the handlers perhaps not so much — but there were still titles to be earned.  Congrats go to:

Chris Farrance & Whisky –  Lifetime Achievement Award – Silver
Chelsea Singer & Crush- Advanced Standard Agility
Chelsea Singer & Gatsby – Starters Jumper
Courtney Holscher & Ella – Agility Dog

Our judge is Susan Mottice from Bluffdate, UT. All levels are offered each day plus a Masters Challenge Biathlon class on Saturday and a Steeplechase on Sunday.

This trial is held in one ring at the Oriole Dog Training Club building in Halethorpe. This site offers plenty of parking, climate control, and a well maintained Sprinturf sportsfield.

Entry fees for the titling classes are the typical low cost of $14 per titling class and $28 for the two round Biathlon and $22 for the Steeplechase tournament 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 17, 2018.
