Join Us for Water Practice 

at Ingallsides Recreation in Scarborough, ME

Start Time: 9:00

You can practice exercises for Junior Certificate or  Apprentice, Working, Courier or Master levels. If you are not ready to trial, these sessions can help your dog become more familiar with the water and practice some basic skills.

We will have boats and request that everyone volunteering to help, you just need your equipment, life jacket and dog!

*Please try to be there on Saturdays by 8:30 so we can get the site set up and be ready to roll by 9. The sooner we get going...the more practice time everyone gets in. If you are late getting there on Saturday, you may not get into the first round of the running order. Those that help set up are given priority.

*We set up a running order to work in the actual practice site or you can practice on your own down the beach. Running order is listed out first come/first serve. You need to be there to sign up.

*Folks who have more than one dog can put one dog at a time in the running order then do next dog in next round, etc. That is only fair to those that don't have multiple dogs.

*Everyone is expected to pitch in to steward for other teams so the same people don't get "stuck" helping all day.

*Keep in mind there is no running water or electricity there so bring water, snacks, lunch, etc. for yourself and your dog.

You can bring a lunch or order from the several sandwich shops in the area.
