This event gives dogs and their owners a chance to try some beginning level dog agility. There will also be an opportunity for participants to test for the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen (AKC-CGC) or Trick Title certification from 9:00 to 3:00. This dog activity day will be at the Clatsop County Fairgrounds & Expo Center arena.
The day starts with a mandatory free registration and orientation from 8:00 to 8:30 a.m., followed by a free Introduction to Jumpers with Weaves Workshop. After this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to try a Jumpers with Weaves Fun Run for $3.00 each. Next will be a free Introduction to Agility Contacts Workshop followed by Agility Touch ‘n’ Go (Contacts) Fun Runs for $3.00 each. The afternoon will conclude with Standard Agility Fun Runs for $3.00 each. No previous experience is needed as long as you are willing to have fun working with your dog and follow the safety instructions. Participants are asked to help to put the equipment away at the end of the day.
The competitions will feature unique ribbons for the top placements. A spectacular prize drawing will take place after lunch. Proceeds from the fun competitions and the drawing will be donated to River Song Foundation http://riversongfoundation.org/.
Participants should bring a dog, a kennel/crate, a non-tightening collar or harness, a short leash (no more than six feet long), many tiny soft treats such as ¼” cheese cubes, a water bowl, a towel, and plastic clean-up bags. The arena is generally very cold in the morning, so dress in layers and wear shoes that allow you to run on uneven dirt.
Spectators are welcome to watch the dogs learn to navigate the obstacle courses. For more information or to donate to the drawing, please contact Sally Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-325-7161 or text 503-308-2372 prior to the day of the event.
