CTA Fall 2020 Premium

Fall Earth Dog Test is October 31 and November 1, 2020.  We’re having Steve’s famous Chili and fixins at Steve and Lori’s house on the farm Saturday evening at 5:30 – everyone welcome!  Bring chairs, BYOB and sides to share.  Saturday BBQ lunch, $10 all you can eat.  For those Master Titled dogs, we’re doing Hat Trick again and you can win gift cards if your dog qualifies in ME, SE & JE in the same test.  Details in the premium.  Call Lynn Reagan-Hull at (919) 818-1157 with questions.

It’s a process and few dogs do it the first time.  It takes training just like with all dog sports – which is why we offer practice days since nobody has tunnels and rats in their backyard.  Senior & Master will start late morning, after IQ and JE end.  $10 per dog for all the practice you need.
