The Greater Boston Area Earthdog Club invites you and your dog to come try Earthdog at our Training Days!

 The Greater Boston Area Earthdog Club (GBAEC.net) will be hosting Earthdog Training Days.  You don't have to be a member of the GBAEC to participate.  There is no charge to come and play!

     This is an opportunity to try out earth dog for the first time, to work on the "next level" before a trial, or to hone your and your dog's skills and improve comfort levels.  All levels (Intro, Junior, Senior and Master) will be available for training.

   GBAEC members, many of whom are experienced Earthdog competitors and several are Earthdog judges, will be there to assist with training and share tips. It's a super opportunity to leverage their experience and enjoy the great outdoors with your dog.

     Breeds eligible for Earthdog are generally the shorter legged terriers, Miniature Schnauzers, Dachshunds and Min Pins that can fit in the 9”h x 9”w tunnels. AKC eligible breeds can be found here: http://www.akc.org/events/earth-dog/eligible-breeds/
