2006 National Seminars, Test and Health Clinics!


I am very proud to report, that with the aid of our membership, we have been able to book a full gamut of seminars, tests and health clinics for the 2006 National!  It had been said that the National event should be more than just a dog show.  It should be an opportunity!  To learn about our breed or a new sport, an opportunity to access professionals that we otherwise wouldn’t have and to attend tests that might not always be available.

Even if you don’t have a dog to show, you’d be well served to attend the 2006 National Specialty and National Obedience Trial!  Our Rottweilers will receive priority booking, however should we not book solid, we will open these events to all breeds.

If you would like to attend the seminars, tests or health clinics, please book early with Terry Risebrough: or call 705-426-9500.  We will be giving preference to Rottweilers, but will be happy to accept all breeds.  Pre-Registration is highly recommended as space is limited.
