Dear Trick Dog Fans,
Last August, USDTC was proud to host the largest Stunt Dog Trial do date. By popular demand, we're doing it again! 
Join Certified Trick Dog Instructors and Official Stunt Dog Judges Kelli-ann Reilly and Lisa Lanser Rose for a fun day of trick-dog training and masterful stunt dog trial performance prep. 


Here's everything you need to know:
You can pre-register for the October 19th Stunt Dog Trail ($39 a run pre-registration, $50 a run the day of). Depending on how many contestants we have, I'll offer run-throughs in the morning and perhaps in an adjacent ring during the trial--stay tuned!
To help you prepare ASAP, Certified Trick Dog Instructor and Stunt Dog Judge Kelli-ann Reilly and I are offering two workshops on October 12th at our club.
Kelli-ann Reilly, (aka. "Boxer Girl") is a trick and stunt dog superstar from Fort Meyers, FL. Kelli-ann has coached and evaluated more than twice as many trick dog titles than anyone else in the world, and we're proud to have her!
