1998 promises to be a busy year!


The 1998 ACDCA National Specialty is going to be in Ventura County, CA. where During August, the mornings and evenings cool down, but the days can range into the 80's. There is something for everyone in the county; beach access, shopping, great restaurants, historical sites, antique stores. The Ventura County Fair begins on August 5th, so there will be midway rides and exhibits throughout the week.


A reminder to send in Agility and Herding entries as soon as you receive them as the trials are open to all breeds. We have booked a block of rooms at the Hilton, but you might want to make hotel reservations as soon as possible due to the Fair.

There are many dog activities in the area at this time, too. July 26th and 27th are the Santa Barbara dog show and AKC Agility trials. August 1st and 2nd are ASCA Herding trials. It's a time to have fun, and there's a bit of extra activity for everyone.


Hope to see you,
