Kennel Club Presents Agility Trials
Moore County Kennel Club presents its annual All-Breed Agility Trials on Saturday, Oct. 28, and Sunday, Oct. 29, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., at Bon-Clyde Learning Center located at 3030 Lee Ave., in Sanford.
Checkin will be at 7:30 a.m., and Judge Judy Kaiser of South Milwaukee, will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on both days.
No doubt the general public has become more familiar with agility trials since its popularity is literally growing by leaps and bounds.
Dogs and their handlers run around the field and seem to be having the time of their lives. There is a series of jumps and obstacles to maneuver around, over, and through for the dogs.
Meanwhile the owners runs beside the obstacles while shouting out commands to their feisty canines. When watching these events the general impression is that both humans and canines are having a ball.
The Bon-Clyde Learning Center is an ideal venue to hold such an event. The agility center is a climate-controlled indoor facility with an 85 by 100 foot area with a special polymer-coated sand flooring from Terra 2000. There is a limited entry of 330 runs per day.

Entry fees are $20 first entry of each dog, each day, $10 second entry of same dog, same day. (These fees include $3 AKC recording fee and $1 recording fee for second entry).
