This year Danielle Renaud of Finish Forward Dog Studios will do weight pull demos. Canine weight pulling is a performance event where the dog demonstrates its strength and stamina by physically pulling a certain amount of weight a prescribed distance for one minute.
Returning this year will be a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test also conducted by Danielle Renaud. CGC testing will be from 12:30 to 1:30 only. Bring your well-behaved dog to the Meet the Breed Showcase on a buckle or slip collar and with a grooming brush and $15 to see if Rover has what it takes to be a respectable member of society. The CGC test is a 10-step test designed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) to reward good-mannered dogs. For more information and the requirements to pass the CGC visit the AKC website http://www.akc.org/events/cgc/index.cfm.
