The Patriot Ring Club is hosting its second trial this upcoming weekend in the field behind the West Boxford Library. Dogs from all across the nation as well as Canada will be competing in arguably the most difficult dog sport around. French Ring is comprised of obedience exercises, jump execution, and bite work and demands dogs with exceptional drive, unbelievable control, and true natural athleticism.
Four club members will be competing this weekend, including Scott Williams who created the club in spring of 2010. Williams also owns Beyond The Leash, a local dog training business that specializes in problem dogs.
The trial will be sanctioned by North American Ring Association (NARA). And judge Yves Billat is traveling in from France and decoys Matt Nieuwkoop and Eduardo Loyola will be coming in from Washington state and Puerto Rico all for this one day event! Spectators are welcome, but if you decide to join us, please leave your dogs at home. The address of the field is 188 Washington Street, Boxford, MA 01810. The trial will begin promptly at 9:00AM on Saturday, September 17th. To learn more about this trial or if you have questions about dog training, call 866-957-3647(DOGS) today!
