FINALLY - Our Trial Date is Set

Post by Christie M » Tue Mar 22, 2011 11:04 pm

ThunderHawk Canine Working Dog Club will be hosting a joint Shcutzhund and PSA trial on the weekend of July 2nd & 3rd.

The Schutzhund portion will be the first sanctioned WDSA (Working Dutch Shepherd Association) event and it will be held on Saturday. The PSA portion will be held on Sunday. Since it is a holiday weekend, we will have a cookout on Saturday night, complete with a band :D

The location is in Knoxville, TN - details to follow. I will post hotel info and camping is available on site. I really hope everyone can plan to make it!! It will be an AWESOME time!

Tell us about yourself: I have had a DS for almost a year. Gwen and I are considering participating in PSA and or possible Ring Sport. I also have a Great Dane. I have grown up around working GSDs and my last GSD was a working K9 officer. I am all about dogs and animals in general and want to learn as much as I can about training.

Sounds like an excellent time! Much success wished your way. It would be doable for me to make that drive, but as spectator. Been out of DVG Schutzhund now nearly 5 yrs. Do post details. Good luck!

I'm thinking I'm going to try to make the trek and get Narc ready for his BH. I don't really have anyone else ready for anything. Hopefully there will be lots of DS there. :)
