Upcoming Events:

The calendar is, to say the least, a bit uncertain for the near future. For now, we are proceeding to plan for our usual summer and fall events. We’re also open to ideas about other, possibly much smaller, activities that we might be able to conduct safely once restrictions began to relax. Suggestions are very welcome; please contact MSDA’s President Steve Roth.

Summer Pool Party, July 2020

The annual MSDA Summer Pool Party is tentatively planned for late July. More information will be available once we’re confident that it can be held. Summer Pool Party is for MSDA members, their families, guests and, of course, dogs! There is always swimming, informal field training, and other doggy fun. Here’s the page with information and photos from last year’s Pool Party.

September Hunt Test Weekend, Sat-Sun September 12-13, 2020

We’re planning a “Fieldapalooza” this fall! Two days of hunt tests for all eligible flushing breeds, a judging seminar, working dog (WD/WDX) tests for spaniel breeds, instinct clinics to introduce dogs (all sporting breeds) to birds, and Canine Good Citizen testing (all breeds). Information, Premium List and registration are now available.
