Welcome Back! USDAA
July 3-5, 2021 Prunedale, CA

This show is a combo AKC/USDAA Trial. The Shetland Sheepdog Club of Northern CA (ABBA Dogs) is running an AKC Trial from July 2-July 4 (closing June 23rd). There will be 5 rings and don't worry about conflicts, everyone will get their runs in! We encourage you to give AKC a try.

Friday Rehearsal Run Throughs

After the rings are set on Friday, July 2nd (around 4-5pm), rehearsal run throughs in all three rings will start. This is a great training opportunity for all dogs, whether just rusty, new to trialing, or not quite ready for prime-time. One need not be entered in the trial to participate.

Cost is $10/run or $25/3 runs. Each run is 60 sec in length. Cash or check payable at the ring gate only. Toys are allowed, no treats in the ring, please. Please feel free to share this with friends or students.

Trial Committee

Additional Information

If your confirmation indicates no height card on file, then you have NOT been "pre" checked-in. The official source is the dog record on the new USDAA website. You do have to have an account, but you don't have to pay the subscription fee to get to the information: My Account > Account Dashboard > Click on the dog's name. Screen shot that page, which includes the Actual Height and the Jump Heights. For some reason, they haven't included the Actual Height on the Registration Card so please don't send that. You can email us a screen shot (trialsecretary@bayteam.org) or bring it to the trial (physical copy or just show it to us on your phone).
