Agility Dogs Wanted for July USDAA Judging Clinic Examination


On July 19-22, Oriole Dog Training Club is hosting a USDAA dog agility judging clinic and examination at our training building in Halethorpe, MD.

On the Saturday and Sunday of this clinic (July 21-22), we will run a practice match for which we need dogs for the new judges to practice their skills on. Participation in this match is a good chance to get your dog on different equipment in a different location as well as a good way to give back to the sport.  USDAA regulation equipment will be used at this match.


Requirements: Your dog must be able to perform all of the standard equipment indoors on artificial turf. The dog does not need to be USDAA registered and does not have to be measured to participate (although you may request to have an official measurement if your dog is registered since this is an official USDAA event).

How it Works: There is no cost for entering the match. You may specify the height of the jumps and the Aframe that you want to work the dog at. You will be asked to sign the usual disclaimer before participating. Although you may come at any point, it will work best if you sign up beforehand in 1 to 2 hour slots so that we have a good idea of how many dogs we will have available for the judge candidates.   Timeslots will be defined for Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning, and Sunday afternoon.  You may be asked to run 3-4 times in your time slot under different judge trainees. We would ask you only not to train in the ring when you are actually being judged (unless you are asked to do so as part of the new Fix & Continue policy).
