The popular $5 Redo Runs will be available for every class!

You must be entered in the regular run to be eligible to pay $5 to redo the run again as ‘Not For Competition’ at the end of the class. Sign up for this is on the day of the trial.

If you have not tried UKI you are missing THE most competitor friendly venue.

Bitches in season are allowed to run at the end of each class.  See page 5 of premium for more details. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY – You can enter your first trial without registering. NFC OPTION- Any run can be made ‘Not for Competition’! Use entire course time for training contacts, weaves, start lines or other things, with any non-audible training aid. No food. FRIENDLY JUMP HEIGHT OPTIONS- Any class can be done with Select Jump Height option. No spreads and your dog jumps one height lower. SPEED STAKES PROGRAM- Want to do just jumps and tunnels with your dog? This is the perfect program for any dog that is young, undergoing rehab, unmotivated on standard courses, or needs work at keeping up bars at high speeds. INTERNATIONAL STYLE COURSE DESIGN- Want to try something a little bit different? UKI courses are designed with a touch of the European flair. They are always fun but just a bit more interesting.

Know Before You Show!!

The Format for Getting Posted

Logos are powerful so if you club has one feel free to send it along for potential use in the blog or newsletter

One of my goals for this blog is to help folks market events of all sorts to the dog sport community. In the Pacific Northwest (PNW), we haven’t had a place to share information about trials and seminars and fund raisers for close to a decade. So we are long over due in this information age.

My time has gotten very tight this past year so the best way to help me help you is by sending me your information in a specific format that is easy for our readers to scan or search–especially on our phones! I expect that I will paste information into the blog as it comes in and re-paste it to the newsletters for weekly dissemination.

How do you get your upcoming event listed on K9EventsNW??  Like all other dog sports you have to follow some simple rules to help out the admin person. You will be sending an email to :  with the subject line:  Event to Post

In the body you will tell me –in this order–

Type of Event: trial, workshop, seminar, fun match, special class, fund raiser,

Type of sport or subject(if one or two apply): Agility, Herding , Obedience, Barn Hunt, Rally, Hunt, Field, Earth dog, TTouch, Movement, Conditioning, Nose Work–you get the idea

Type of organization affiliation (if there is one): AKC, ASCA, AHBA, TDAA, USDAA…there are many

Club/Business/Person sponsoring the event and their website or email address and the person doing the admin for the event (if different) and their email.

Brief description of event with location and link to flier/premium (if possible or the email of person who can send that information). Don’t forget to give any deadlines or costs or specifications that customers may need to know about.

Don’t forget that we have folks on the mailing lists all the way up in Alaska and over to Montana as well as Washington Oregon and Idaho. I suspect in time some Californians will show up too.
