Upcoming Events:
MSDA Field Day, May 4 2019

Rebel Ridge Farms, Elkton MD. A full day of fun, bird dog training for all levels, and some very good food.

Stewarding Seminar, date to be determined

Acting as a steward at a dog show or obedience and rally trials is a great way to contribute to the sport, make friends, and get the inside scoop about these dog activities. However, we find many people are reluctant to participate because they think that they don’t know enough about the rules. We are just starting to plan an introductory seminar to conformation and obedience/rally stewarding to be held later this year. Check back to this website and/or sign up for our email list to find out more.
