The American Kennel Club (AKC) is now recognizing dock diving titles and Courteous Canine, Inc. DogSmith of Tampa is giving Floridian dog owners their first in-state opportunities to compete! Dogs attending North America Diving Dogs (NADD) sanctioned events can earn titles that owners can then apply to have recorded on their dogs’ AKC records. That means that NADD titles can become part of a dog’s AKC pedigree and appear on other AKC documents.
Courteous Canine, Inc. DogSmith of Tampa is currently the only NADD sanctioned facility in the state of Florida and we are hosting our first competition October 11-12, 2014! Martin Schlossnagel will be judging the event, which will offer competitors the chance to earn a title in one weekend. Angelica Steinker and Jan, both of Courteous Canine, Inc. DogSmith of Tampa, are in training to become judges as well.
If your dog isn’t ready to compete, consider coming out to watch this historic event!
