Special Event Training

Get ready for a big event at Happy Dog!

How it Works?

Happy Dogs congratulates everyone that trained and trialed and earned an invitation to a big event. We are proud of you and privileged to have you training with us.

This is the perfect time for us to gather in the rings at Happy Dogs to help you prepare for this big event and then gather again to watch you compete.

We are planning our training sessions for the 2023 National Obedience Championship and Rally National Championship. Our training will involve more than just the exercises. We will be building the kinds of challenges these teams will encounter while competing.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event training. You do not need to be a member.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the RNC training at Happy Dogs. It was totally worth the long drive. I cannot tell you how much we got out of it. Just having the distractions, the two rings, and the set ups gave me a huge boost of confidence and that’s important! Thanks again!
