Check back to this page for Thursday prelim results as well as which dogs will advance to the Final. A list of advanced dogs will be listed on this page Thursday evening. Also stay tuned here for any possible changes to scheduling due to weather.

 

Reminder:  Checking in lets us know you are here and allows us to give you your souvenir bag. Handlers only need to check in once time for the event. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your run time to allow time to stop by the secretary’s desk under the tent to receive your souvenir bag and to have your dog inspected at the inspection station. Prior to running all dogs must pass through inspection.
