Potomac Specialty – Obedience “C” Match

When:  Monday, April 11th

Where:  Breakaway Action Dogs, Inc., 900 East Patrick Street, Frederick, MD  21701

Entries:  At ring side only (no pre-entry).  Registration from noon until 2:00 p.m.

Entry Fee:  $10.00 for each “run”               Entries are limited to Labrador Retrievers

NOTE:  This is a “C” match, (not a judged “B” match).  Meaning you are guaranteed 10 minutes of ring time for practice for each entry.  Additional practice time may be possible once all entries have “run.”  A Utility and an Open/Novice ring will be available for practice.  Rally signs/courses will not be available.

This is an excellent opportunity to bring your crate, chair, “stuff” (and floor covering for under them), and pick your spot to set up for the rest of the week of the Specialty.  All items (but not your dog) may remain in the building for the duration of the Specialty.   This is also a great opportunity to practice in the building/rings in which you will be competing for the Specialty; particularly if you and your dog have not worked on turf (no beads) flooring before.  This is the same building that has been used for the Potomac for a number of years, but the flooring has just been replaced with turf.
