Dog Water Races (Held Offsite)


In the water race, a well-scented lure or a raccoon in a cage is floated or suspended on water in such a way that the dogs cannot contact it. Boundary markers designate the entry and exit points for the dogs. The home tree is 20 yards or more from the opposite sure. The winning dog is the first to correctly follow the scent across the pond to the home tree and indicate on it.

The event will be held at the Harrison Pond, on the corner of Gillis Falls Road and John Pickett Road. There are plenty of riding trails that will take you there. If you wish to drive, there will be parking available in the field at the pond.
