CTA April 2020 Premium

Spring Earth Dog Test is April 11 & 12.  We’re having a hamburger cookout at Steve and Lori’s house on the farm Saturday evening at 5:30 – everyone welcome!  See details in the premium and RSVP cutoff section (it helps us plan for food amounts).  Bring chairs, BYOB and sides to share.  Also RSVP for our Saturday BBQ lunch, $10 all you can eat.  For those Master Titled dogs, we’re doing Hat Trick again and you can win Starbucks 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.
NEW!  Two days of practice.  Practice days are Saturday March 28 & Sunday March 29, two weeks before our Test weekend.  Please share this flyer with your club and other terrier/doxie friends who might want to learn Earthdog.  Remember, we take all the time needed to help your new dog learn from the beginning: introduction to a caged rat in a fenced enclosure, then we progress to a short above-ground tunnel.  Next we move to a darker, in-ground tunnel and try to get your dog to go all the way to the end and bark at the rat. 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.
