WD/WDX/WDQ set ups and practice to earn working dog certificates at the Chesapeake National Specialty Show Sept. 25th (entries close August 30) near Franklintown PA, view information on this event HERE (http://www.amchessieclub.org/specialties2/show11pennsylvania/wdxq.htm). Click HERE (http://www.amchessieclub.org/WD/WD-X-Q.html) for information on the ACC's Working Dog Certification program.

Cost: $25 for dog/handler team, includes picnic lunch. We will train with ducks; fliers will be available for purchase. You do not have to be an ACC member to attend. We will have hands-on help for all levels, puppy/beginner to advanced, plus realistic set ups and "judging" for all 3 levels--Working Dog, Working Dog Excellent & Working Dog Qualified.

Space is limited and entries must be reserved by August 22 and all fliers purchased in advance. For more information, "like" Hope Springs Farm on Facebook and/or send me a PM with your email address, you can also contact Pat Puwal blurdgchesATverizon.net or email me at hopespringsfarmATgmail.com.

We also need a few more volunteers to gun/throw marks. The pay is very good ;-) you do not have to own a CBR to help and you will get a chance to run your dog and you'll be well fed. Plenty of shady parking, 3 ponds. Hope to see you on the 28th!
