DKGNA testing will resume on September 25th & 26th with our Solms/AZP/Zuchtschau in Cedar Fort,Utah. This test will be followed by a Solms/AZP/Zuchtschau in Walla Walla, WA on October 3rd; a HZP/Solms/AZP/Zuchtschau on October 9th, 10th, & 11th Frisco City, AL; and Lillington, NC on November 7th & 8th for a Solms/AZP/Zuchtschau. Click here to view the DKGNA Testing Schedule. There are Training Days available for most of the tests. Please contact the Test Coordinators for scheduled times.
As is the case with everything else the tests this year will be subject to local Covid-19 restrictions. There will be no spectators allowed at the tests and each handler will be required to sign a release form. Hopefully we can be back to normal sometime soon.
Ticket sales for the DKGNA Raffle remain steady. We have approximately thirty tickets left to sell and we can have the drawings. If you have not sold or purchased your tickets please do so now. Click here to see the flyer and purchase a ticket via PayPal.
The Canadian Border has been closed since March and remains so, with no relief in sight. This has created a hardship for our members North of the Border. We have tried to organize a fall test in British Columbia or Alberta but there is a shortage of DK Judges in Western Canada and Judges from the USA can’t cross the border making it impossible to hold a test at this time. The closure has also impacted the tests south of the boarder as the Canadian dogs can not attend the scheduled tests.
We look forward to seeing many of you at the Fall Tests.
Frank O’Leary, President
