Open Ring Practice - members only
Each session will have a small course set up as well as a separate area to work on a specific skill. We will rotate through the dogs at 4 minute intervals. There is no formal instruction during open ring time. You can work on the sequence provided or do what you’d like with the equipment that’s set up.
An e-mail will be sent out to all members the Monday before open ring time to ask who would be interested in participating on the coming Saturday. A few details about the set up for the week will be provided at that time.
The cost of the open ring time is $10 per handler (with as many dogs as you want to bring) to be paid in CASH directly to SilverDawn on the day of the event. Payment on the day of the event will give some flexibility if something comes up and you are no longer able to attend at the last minute.
2022 Dates: 5-Nov, 19-Nov, 3-Dec, 17-Dec
Time: 2pm to 5pm
