Getting to Know the Agility Organizations!

Keep the Summer Fun Going by Trying New Venues!

Learn more about each of the agility organizations in which Oriole holds trials – NADAC, AKC, CPE and USDAA – and how to prepare for competition at the upcoming trials.   One organization will be discussed per evening workshop.  Each evening will offer an overview including

  • basic rules,
  • how to register
  • classes offered,
  • equipment used, and
  • how titles are earned.

Following the discussion, a run-thru will be held for Novice/Open handlers and dogs in at least one of the games the organization offers.

See our seminars and workshops page for more information and registration links.
