Paws4Fun agility will hold Agility Association of Canada (AAC) trials as well as seminars and fun matches which include the popular 4-match K-9 Kup. We are also involved with giving agility demonstrations in the community.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
A fun event for experienced senior agility dogs who are no longer competitively playing agility. The photos to the left show some of the dogs who competed in last year's event.
The courses are built with no spreads or doubles and extra time added to account for our senior dogs. No more than one contact will be used per course and it will be set at lower then special vet height for safety of our RAD's and jump bars can even be set on the ground if needed.
This is not an AAC sanctioned trial but will be generally held using AAC rules and regulations for scoring.
There will be placement ribbons, a draw for prizes for both competitors and volunteers. A food vendor will be onsite for competitors and volunteers as well as a certified dog chiropractor.
Spectators are welcome!

CANINE GOOD NEIGHBOUR EVALUATION
Diane Solman became certified as a Canine Good Neighbour Evaluator in 2014 and in the last half of the season evaluated several dog & handler teams, many of whom succeeded in obtaining their CGN title!
We plan to continue to offer such testing in the future!
STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE DATES!
The test is non-competitive and allows dog and handler to demonstrate confidence and control in 12 steps (click here to see a list of the 12 steps). It assesses the handler and dog's relationship, together with the handler’s ability to control the dog. Dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.
The training program embraces both purebred and mixed-breed dogs and is fun, rewarding, and useful. It encourages owners to have a better and richer relationship with their dogs. The program also enhances community awareness of responsible dog ownership and the numerous benefits associated with dog ownership.
The CKC will mail certificates to the teams (handler and dog) that successfully complete the test.
