2020 Changes to the Water Trial Manual

  • The Working Dog Excellent level is now an optional titling level
  • Expanded Table of Contents
  • The Grievance and Aggression sections have been broken out to be easier to find when they are needed. A separate chapter has been created for judges.
  • Master Level competitors, there will be a coin flip. Directions are included.
  • A revision was made to clarify the definition and use of stewards during a trial.

2020 All-Breed SUPER Health Clinic
We were blessed with lovely weather for the 32 different
breeds of dogs that attended for eye, ear and heart checks
as well as blood work and OFA X-Rays (over 230 tests accomplished).
Many thanks to Dr. Christine Scruggs and her staff at Deep River
Animal Hospital as well as our wonderful Nutmeg PWDC volunteers.
It truly takes a village.
