Our Photographer will be Frank Jansen!

Becky Therian, The Animal Touch, will be on site all weekend to massage our dogs (my dogs love her massages!)

Janine Pollard will have her designer leashes and collars at the trial


Melinda’s Multiple Sclerosis has progressively advanced to the point she is wheelchair bound.

All proceeds from Friday night run throughs will go to help fund a wheelchair ramp for her home and other needed modifications.  Also, we'll be raffling off a wooden jump and a 10' tunnel this weekend - see Lisa Norris for tickets.



June 13, 2011 - confirmations have gone out!


Hello, Everyone!  Thank you for entering the June 18-19, 2011 CPE trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training.  This is your entry confirmation. Your individual entry confirmation will come in a separate email shortly.  Please be sure to look at it closely and let me know of any errors or move ups.  We have 214 dogs entered for 699 runs on Saturday and 623 runs on Sunday. 

This trial is full to capacity!  We are going to do our best to move the trial along efficiently while making sure everyone has a safe and successful run and gets their time in the ring.  Walk throughs will be timed at 7 minutes all weekend long.  We will be counting on our volunteers (thank you so, so much!) to help make the weekend go smoothly.  Please listen to both the general briefing in the morning and the judge’s class briefings for ways we can make the trial run more efficiently.


Perfect weekend rosettes will be awarded to teams achieving Q’s in all 10 runs.

Run Throughs Friday Afternoon:

We will have run throughs on a CPE standard course, 2 levels nested, $5 for the first run, $3 for each additional run of the same dog; each dog will get 2 minutes in the ring.  Toys may be used, but please no treats since we’ll be using the ring for the trial the whole weekend long.  Dogs should be comfortable on equipment; no other pre-requisites to come and play! No pre-registration required.


Walk throughs will begin at 4 pm, first dog on the line at 4:30.  We'll rotate through jump heights and have subsequent walk throughs.  Run throughs will end at or around 7 PM.


If you'd like to volunteer to help with run throughs, please contact Trisha at trisha@agiledogs.net.  Volunteers will get 2 free runs in the run throughs for helping out.  Jobs include taking money, facilitating the running order, setting bars, and running leashes.  Volunteers must help for at least 90 minutes to get their free runs.  Thank you!

Only a few copies of the run catalog will be available at the trial.  The catalog will be available for download and printing on Wednesday night at www.agiledogs.net


The volunteer schedule will be posted on the AgileDogs website by Wednesday.  Thanks to all who volunteered!

Please do not worry about conflicts between classes you’re working and classes you’re running in.  All workers will be accommodated.  You can move your dog within a class to make sure you have time to concentrate on having a successful run with your 4-footed partner.

If your job for a given class is timer, scribe, assistant scribe, or gate steward, please report to the chief ring steward when the briefing for the class begins, so you can prepare for your job and so the judge can brief you if needed – thanks!  If your job is anything not already mentioned, you can report any time before or during the walk through.


There will be vendors at the trial.  Please see the website for more details.


We are pleased to again have Pork n Jojo’s (a.k.a. Eric and Joanne Lapine), and they will be offering breakfast and lunch all weekend.  Volunteers will get lunch tickets good at the food vendor. 


During the trial, move-ups in Standard will be taken at the show, and must be submitted to the Show Secretary before the completion of the last class of the day.  Thank you for your cooperation. 

The deadline for contacting the secretary with move ups or corrections before the trial is the end of day on Tuesday, June 14th.  Any changes to entries made after that date will be subject to a $5 service change fee.

RULES:  CPE has initiated new rules effective February 1, 2007; review the CPE website for details (www.k9cpe.com).
