A NEW EVENT OFFERED AT THIS YEAR’S BANQNIC
This June at our Banqnic, we plan to offer the opportunity to put a fun new title on your dog. It’s the Trick Dog title, and there are several different levels, based on your dog’s “vocabulary” of skills. Below is a link to the AKC explanation of the program with clickable links for the skills needed for each level. Like the CGC title, you will have the option of participating in a Trick Dog evaluation for your own pleasure (and your dog’s!), or, if you pass, applying to the AKC for an official title. Fee involved, of course.

In addition, here is a link to further clarification on what each trick involves: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3irr5qf8eo03tgy/AADOXdImpRexyR7eCrj5L1k6a?dl=0
Our judge this year will be Jane Palinkas, from Winsted, Connecticut, also a licensed CGC judge. There is no requirement for pre-registration at our Banqnic, but here’s a challenge for you: see if you can teach your dog enough of the tricks to earn your title in June. Your dog will LOVE it!
Thanks to Karen Gatchell for putting this exciting challenge together!!!

Unfortunately, the Setter Symposium has been cancelled, due to lack of entries. Perhaps next year, when we are all more comfortable, we'll get a healthy (!) turnout! It's a fun and VERY instructive event. ... See MoreSee Less
