Group Name: Laughing Dog Agility
Founded: October, 2009
Number of NADAC trials held each year: 3
Group special events or get-togethers? The people who help put on the Laughing Dog Agility trials enjoy visiting with each other and with the out of town people at the trials. Many new friendships have been formed during these trials.
Any other cool group info you want to include? Laughing Dog Agility was founded to promote NADAC in the central Alabama area. There was no NADAC closer than a 3 hour drive, so Laughing Dog Agility wanted to offer people from this area the option to compete in NADAC trials. We started with 2 trials a year and quickly added a third. We are very fortunate to have a really nice enclosed horse arena in which to host our trials. The weather does not affect our trials at all. Even if it is raining or really cold, we can still hold our trials. Our trials are lots of fun and we have lots of people who volunteer to help with everything from equipment set up to being ring crew to equipment loading at the end of the trial. During the past year, Laughing Dog was instrumental in helping found a new NADAC group in Georgia. We are very excited to have more NADAC in the Southeast and look forward to more groups being formed in the future.
I have included a few pictures to include our logo, which I love. The idea behind it was to let people know anyone is welcome at Laughing Dog. Whether you have a purebred dog or a mixed breed dog, you can come have fun with Laughing Dog Agility.
Since we started holding trials a little over 5 years ago, several NATCHes have been earned at our trials. There is always lots of cheering, tears, smiles, and celebration when a NATCH is earned and there is sure to be some cake shared with everyone!!!!
If you are looking for a fun trial, Laughing Dog Agility invites you to come play with us in Central Alabama, Y’all come!!!!!
