Where have all the obedience trials gone?

It seems that many Kennel Clubs are having financial difficulties in either finding show sites, help, etc., and as a consequence are eliminating obedience trials in order to simplify their work loads.  Next month, the four-day shows held at Earl Warren Fairgrounds will not be including obedience & rally.  Also, Cabrillo Kennel Club will not be holding obedience & rally at their August 31-September 1st shows.  San Luis Obispo Kennel Club will not be including obedience & rally at their shows in September.  At this time, the Kennel Club of Beverly Hills has not scheduled an obedience & rally trial at their show in December.  All these kennel clubs have included obedience and rally trials with their all breed shows in the past, but starting in 2013 they will not.
We as obedience exhibitors need to put forth a unified front and let these clubs know that 1) we have greatly appreciated their support in the past and 2) implore them to reconsider offering obedience in future.  Please contact these clubs and let them know that you care! Perhaps we can ‘turn the tide’, so to speak, if we let them know it DOES MATTER: WE CARE.

New site for Beverly Hills & Long Beach Obedience & Rally Trials

lb bh siteThe Kennel Club of Beverly Hills & Long Beach Kennel Club will be holding their obedience & rally trials in a new location this weekend.  The new site is behind the shops, and is next to the Queen Mary and the Dome.  The new location is quieter and is away from the hustle & bustle of the rest of the show.  Parking is reasonably close and there will be signage directing you where to park.  There will be tenting.  The food vendors are quite a distance away, so you may wish to bring your own lunch and snacks.  Click here for satellite view.lb bh site 2
