Noteworthy Notes:

Weather/Dress in Layers:

Fun matches may be cancelled due to inclement weather, however this is not likely since during the summer months the temperature at the Field is typically 70 degrees (10-25 degrees cooler than nearby areas). In the rare instance that it rains, a notice will be sent out via email and the match rescheduled. The checks of those who cannot make the rescheduled dates will be destroyed.

 

Training:

Fun matches are designed to provide handlers and dogs with an opportunity to practice in an environment that simulates a trial. Training in the ring is encouraged! Bring lots of treats and toys and reward accordingly. Remember, fun matches are are supposed to be just that, FUN! Enjoy being out there with your canine companion, other agility aficionados, and the serene environs.

 

Participants:

Dogs and handlers must have trained in dog agility for over 6 months and be able to use the equipment safely off leash. Dogs that are aggressive towards people or other dogs, dogs that are out of control, and/or dogs that bark excessively, will be asked to leave without refund of entry fees or credit.
