Highlight seminar of the week


Rally Seminar with Diane Clyne:

1 pm -3 pm Friday, August 24 in the Grooming Barn at Washington County Fairgrounds


This seminar will show you what a Novice Rally class entails. All over the world every week obedience classes teach people how to teach their dogs to be well behaved by using common obedience commands.   Rally also gives obedience a fun and positive training approach. For those not familiar with Rally, it has a number of these common obedience exercises put on a sign as a picture. The seminar will look at a selection of the novice signs and how to properly execute the commands.   We will practice a selection of these signs and look at what a common course might look like in a Novice Rally obedience trial.  



We will have a prize drawing at each of our seminars but you must be present to win!

Seminar sign-ups are coming soon so be on the look out!

It is time to start submitting your Ads and stories for our 2012 Nationals Catalog. Those of you who have purchased past Nationals catalogs know why we usually sell out fast! Lots of color, detailed information regarding the show grounds, the community around the show, entries, training tips, information on the presenters and the judges and great stories about dogs; and this year being the first full fledged Nationals as Miniature American Shepherds this catalog will be an historic treasure to own! You really will not want to miss advertising in the 2012 Nationals catalog!

Brag on a winning dog, promote your dog related business, thank a friend or breeder for their support, announce upcoming litters, advertise your kennel, the ideas are endless when it comes to your ad for 2012 Nationals!

Pre-sale price to be picked up on show grounds will be $20.00 (shipping is available for an additional $5.00). Catalogs will be available for sale at the Nationals for $25.00.
