This year we offer Barn Hunt demos. Barn Hunt is the new and quickly growing dog sport in which a dog must use its instincts to navigate a hay-bale maze in an enclosure searching for a plastic cage containing a live rat. Barn Hunt is open to any dog of any breed or mix who wishes to play the game. We offer an opportunity for visitors and their dogs to try this fast growing sport.

Returning this year will be a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test conducted by Danielle Gagne. CGC testing will be from 12:30 to 1:30 only. Bring your well-behaved dog to the Meet the Breed Showcase on a buckle or slip collar and with a grooming brush and $15 to see if Rover has what it takes to be a respectable member of society. The CGC test is a 10-step test designed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) to reward good-mannered dogs. For more information and the requirements to pass the CGC visit the AKC website http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/index.cfm.

Please note: Although exhibitors may have one or more of their dogs present, NO PUPPIES OR DOGS ARE FOR SALE AT THIS EVENT! This is an information only event, literature and contact information will be available for you to take so you may continue your search for the perfect canine family member.
