Upcoming Events:
Summer Pool Party, July 20 2019

Dickerson MD. A fun day for MSDA members, family, guests, and dogs.

Stewarding Seminar, mid-August

Gregg Kantak, an experienced conformation judge and the Chief Steward for MSDA’s annual dog shows, provides a perspective on the Steward as a Dog Show Event’s Ambassador. Read this short article to learn more about this rewarding activity as well as Gregg’s path to stewarding.

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 what is involved. MSDA is organizing an introductory seminar for conformation and obedience/rally stewarding sometime during the weekend of August 17-18 (exact date, time, and location are to be determined). Check back to this website, contact Gregg, and/or sign up for our email list to find out more.
