Not a great name, but an awesome weekend!

Did you know that “Spring Event” is short for “Spring Community Engagement Event”? And, in 2024, it’s bigger than ever: THREE days of sporting dog shows and obedience & rally trials. Also: a Fun Match on Friday, Instinct Clinics on Saturday and Sunday, AKC Fetch tests on Saturday and Sunday and, for MSDA Members and their guests, a delicious banquet Saturday evening!

This is a great opportunity, as sporting dog enthusiasts, to educate others about dogs in general and bird dogs in particular. If you have friends or business associates who might be interested in learning more about the sporting breeds, please share information about the Spring Event with them. Maybe they’re thinking about getting a dog but want to compare certain breeds, or perhaps they’re wondering what they got into when they brought home that puppy who turned into an adorable bundle of seemingly unlimited energy. Possibly you yourself are a “field person” who’s never ventured into a dog show and are curious what all the fuss is about. Every year, our members, exhibitors and knowledgeable spectators answer a lot of questions about dogs, sporting breeds and MSDA.

Spring Event has no admission charge, but parking is $5 (cash) per vehicle. No strollers, please, and dogs not entered in the event should not be brought into the buildings.

See you there!
