Field Trial Summary

First of all Welcome! 

Our field trial days are posted on FaceBook and on our calendar here.

When you first arrive at the grounds Say hello!

Introduce yourself! Tell us about your dog! 

It's okay if your first day is just an orientation of sorts! 

Typically there will be a whiteboard (or a few) to sign up on. 

  - Your Name, Your dog's name, What you're working on

What you Need: 

  • A Plan - Come with a game plan of what you'd like to work on. For your first day, it's okay to get a lay of the land. All are welcome.
