Events

You are required to have a current rabies certificate for all dogs with you when attending a Rhode Island AKC sponsored event. All animals should appear to be in good health and may be subject to examination by a local veterinarian. We have been told that a Certified Veterinary Certificate will not be required for these events.

Agility

Our 2018 event on Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 was a great success.

Thanks to everyone who participated and a special thank you to Susan Porier who chaired the event. We all had a great time running our dogs and things went very smoothly due to all of the volunteers who pitched in. We currently don’t have another agility event scheduled, but we plan to run this event next year in May.
