Events

Dachshund Races

Dachshund Races 2009

They were so popular last year we’ve decided to add more races this year and break the pups into size groups: minis, standards and in-betweeners if needed! Check back here for race schedules.

Costume Contest

Costume Contest 2009
Who can resist a jester Dachshund or an Aussie parading around as a 4-H-er? This year we will be breaking the contest into two divisions, one for Youth (under 18) and one for Adults.

Costume Contest 2009
Intro to Rally Obedience

This will be an introductory level course for you and your dog to sample the newest (and fun!) event in obedience. Just read the signs and do what they say, like an obstacle-course meets scavenger-hunt! ($2 a run, or $5 for 3 runs)

Advanced Rally Obedience

For those more experienced handler and dog teams we have an advanced course! It is a great opportunity to get in some practice amidst lots of distractions before the next competition. ($2 a run, or $5 for 3 runs)

Rally-Oops!

Youngsters without K9 partners can go through a Rally-like course designed especially for them–no dog required! (Adult partner permitted–no fee.)

Intro to Agility

A walk-through with some agility equipment at beginner levels, including the dog walk, wait table, A-frame, weave poles, tunnel and low jumps. ($2 a run, or $5 for 3 runs)

Demonstrations

K9 Officer Demos 2009
We will keep the activities going in the center Demonstration Ring with the Dachshund Races, Costume Contest, Breed Spotlight, Parade of Breeds, and other examples of responsible dog ownership.
