Getting to Know the Agility Organizations

Learn more about each of the agility organizations in which Oriole holds trials—USDAA, NADAC, AKC and CPE. The evening will start with an overview, which includes basic rules, classes offered, equipment used and how titles are earned. A run-thru in at least one of the games the organization offers will follow, for Novice/Open handlers and dogs. Prerequisites for the run-thrus: Dogs should be comfortable on all obstacles. Auditing is encouraged for beginner handlers new to any of the organizations. Oriole reserves the right to cancel if less than six dogs are registered. Click on links below to register.
