The Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul Basset Hound Club will be participating in this exciting event and volunteers are needed!

This will be the fourth annual Minnesota Responsible Dog Ownership event for this group of 43 All-breed, Group, and Specialty Clubs from across Minnesota. The event offers the opportunity to watch or participate in a variety of dog activities including, AKC Meet the Breeds, meet the groomer, agility, obedience, rally, weight pull, earth dog tunnels, and free conformation handling lessons from experienced trainers.

A new attraction this year will be the Croix Valley Tracking Club who will provide insight into the world of tracking.

We will again offer free Canine Good Citizen testing and low cost TDI evaluation at this event. A microchip clinic (ID your dog) is available on-site for $25.00 including registration and $5.00 from each chip sold is donated to the Three Day Breast Cancer Walk.

Food will be available on the grounds provided by the Animal Inn Junior Handlers group and all net proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Junior Scholarship Fund.

An AKC Canine Experience match for conformation, obedience, and rally will be held starting at noon and is open to all recognized breeds including Foundation Stock Services. This match is to encourage new dog owners to try these venues and there is no charge for entry in this event.

Please consider joining us at this event and all well behaved dogs on leash with proof of vaccination are welcome.
