Dog Shows are an exciting way to meet other dog owners, to socialise your pet, and to test his or her abilities if you choose to enter a competitive event.
The sport of Working Trials is the canine equivalent of Three Day Eventing. The Nosework –Cross Country, Obedience – Dressage, and Agility – Show Jumping.
Agility is a fast-paced, exciting dog sport with great spectator appeal. It is an excellent test of the partnership between the handler and dog.
Obedience events exhibit how well a dog, through training and condition, can behave at home, in public and around of other dogs.
