Do you and your dog have the 2013 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in site? Perhaps you are training for The National Dog Show? Or, maybe you are just considering a New England event, but need some practice. Whatever your goal, sign-up for Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society’s All Breed Show N’ Go Fun Match on Sunday, May 18th and have the opportunity to practice with your dog in a fun setting with professional judges.
While professional dog shows and agility matches abound in dog-loving New England, often times the entrants have limited opportunities to practice their skills before competing in the big event. Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society is offering a low-cost chance for competitors to come together and practice their skills before going further afield. Join other dogs and compete in a fun environment, or be judged in Agility, Rally, and Obedience categories.
Your dog could be a Canine Good Citizen. Caron Bronstein

All dogs who pass this 10-step test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. Nationally recognized, and one of the most rapidly growing and programs in the American Kennel Club, its purpose “is to ensure that a dog can be a respected member of the community because it has been trained to be well behaved in the home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs.”

Canine Good Citizen Test (must be received by May 5): $8.00
Pre-Entry Fun Match(received by May 5): $8.00/first entry, $5.00/second entry
