Event Report: Kellar Canine Academy Rally Trial

Read about this fun rally event! By Jodi Kellar

Kellar Canine Academy in Saddlebrook, New Jersey, held a World Cynosport Rally trial on December 7-8. Thank you to all the competitors that came to our trial. We enjoyed being a part of your relationship bonding with you and your pup! I hope you had fun, learned something new, met new people, and earned a Q or two; both Cynosport and personal qualifying scores/accomplishments deserve pride and congrats!

Thank you to Judges Peg Munves and Natalene Lamming for fabulously fun courses and to my KCA family: Tito Jackson for being trial secretary, and Niki Levien and Lauren Jones Wenzel for fluidly running the score/timer table. You made our trial enjoyable for all!

Cindy Lee and Hailey qualified for the first time at the event!Jill Stoller and Tia are seen here showing off their new level 2 title ribbons with judge Peg Munves.
