AKC National Tracking Invitational to be held at the Branched Oak State Recreation Area in Raymond, Nebraska

AKC is pleased to announce that the 9th AKC National Tracking Invitational (NTI) will be held at the Branched Oak State Recreation Area in Raymond, Nebraska on October 24 and 25, 2020. This event is being hosted by the Cornhusker Kennel Club of Lincoln, NE and the Nebraska Kennel Club of Omaha, NE and it will be the first time that the NTI is being held at this beautiful and spacious park. This prestigious event is a celebration and showcase for dogs who have earned the title of Champion Tracker (CT) between 2011 and 2020.  This elite group of tracking dogs have earned their CT and the honor of an invitation to participate in this event by titling in tracking events held in field (Tracking Dog and Tracking Dog Excellent) and in urban (Tracking Dog Urban and Variable Surface Tracking) environments.  In the late summer of 2020, owners of eligible Champion Tracker dogs will receive an electronic invitation to enter the event. From those entries, twelve lucky dogs will be chosen to participate by a random drawing. The date for the drawing will be announced after the closing of entries.  If possible, the blind drawing will be shared through a “Facebook Live” event. Mark your calendars and make plans to join us as an exhibitor, volunteer or spectator!
