I am now offering my services as trial secretary to any club or individual in the Northeast and New England regions.  My experience in all aspects of what it takes to hold an agility trial spans 6 years and 3 venues (CPE, USDAA, and TDAA).  As AgileDogs Agility Training I host approximately 9 trials per year, and have been trial secretary for many of those trials.  In addition, I understand the ins and outs involved with holding a trial and have experience in not only the trial secretary job but also trial chair, chief course builder, hospitality, and chief scorekeeper, as I have done all jobs in the past and continue to do so for my trials.

Unlike most other trial secretaries, I do not charge a set amount per run for my services.  I understand how clubs need income to survive, and how trial secretary fees can often take a big chunk out of the bottom line.  So, I have devised a fixed rate for my services that only varies by factors such as number of rings and venue.  Please contact me for more information about my fair and flexible fee structure!

As trial secretary I will provide the following for you:

  • preparation of premium

  • posting the premium on my website and promoting it on all the agility and dog events lists

  • accepting entries, payments, corrections, etc, and answering any and all questions from competitors, judges, and the club

  • preparing all the paperwork necessary to run and score the trial (including but not limited to scribe sheets, gate sheets, and scoretable sheets and guides)

  • computer scoring followed by printing of results plus ribbons labels

  • sending all the final paperwork and payment to the sanctioning organization

  • posting final results to my website


Also, if you're interested in holding a TDAA trial but know nothing about how to do it, or don't have any TDAA equipment, I can help you!  I can provide complete hosting services, including teacup-sized equipment, for TDAA trials.  Contact me for details.
