ANTA invites you to join us for Fun in the Sun at the Finger Lakes Kennel Club Earthdog tests July 22, 23, 24, 2016 in Newark Valley, NY.
There will be in-ground practice at the test site on Friday, July 22 from noon to four. FLKC is offering two tests on Saturday and one on Sunday. Please check their website for the premium: www.fingerlakeskennelclub.org The FLKC greatly appreciates our support as the Norfolk entry usually outnumbers any other breed at these tests!
We encourage everyone to come and see what Norfolk were bred to do…hunt for vermin. The site is well-shaded and the FLKC offers a delicious breakfast and lunch. We always have a wonderful time sharing good food, swapping dog stories and watching and supporting each other as we run our terriers.
