The Arkansas Schutzhund Club is proud to welcome the 2014 LV/DVG America Championship back to the great state of Arkansas. The event will run from October 23rd (Thursday) through October 26th (Sunday).
The diamond in the Championship logo is significant in several ways to our club. Diamonds naturally signify elegance and beauty but also precision is needed when cutting them to bring out their true brilliance. The canine athletes demonstrate elegance and precision form years of hard work. Arkansas is the only state that has a diamond producing mine and the only mine in the world that an individual can keep what they find. The greater significance, to all of us, would be the diamond that was lost last year with the passing of Sandi Purdy . This championship event will be dedicated to her memory.
You can expect a handler friendly event. The Arkansas Schutzhund Club's training grounds are nestled in the beauty of The Natural State. Our training grounds include: club house, porch areas, concession stand, and large shade trees with lawn furniture on 70 acres. The training field will be set up for obedience and protection practice. The area is plentiful in tilled dirt and lush cover fields, so tracking will be favorable.
This year's championship competition events will be held at War Memorial / AT&T Stadium, which host major football and concert events. Truly, a stadium worthy of our national championship. The host hotel, stadium. training field, restaurants, shopping, and local attractions are all conveniently located in close proximity.
Championship catalogs and a wide range of apparel will be on sale to commemorate the event. There will be a large assortment of raffle items as well as concessions. We are expecting many great vendors and participants, so come prepared to have a good time. Enjoy the beauty of the Ozarks in Fall color foliage and our Southern hospitality. The Arkansas Schutzhund Club INVITES YOU to the 2014 LV/DVG AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP in Little Rock / North Little Rock, AR. See you there!
