Readers have answers about dog obedience competitions

I am wondering if Gazette readers might know about any dog obedience competitions in Colorado? I went to one in California many years ago where mainly military or law enforcement agencies had their dogs compete against each other in different categories. I would love to go to one again.

ANSWERS: Joni Weed, Colorado Springs Kennel Club Obedience Trial Chair, e-mailed, “There are many. Here in Colorado Springs, on the 9th and 10th of June the CSKC has their conformation, obedience and rally show at the Phil Long Expo Center. It is open to the public (we love an audience) and the dogs compete in several levels. Bring a folding chair and lounge comfortably at ringside while dogs of all breeds strut their stuff. (coloradospringskc.org).
"The Pikes Peak Obedience Club (pikespeakobedience.org) holds their annual obedience and rally trials in October in Falcon at the Latigo Trails Equestrian Center. PPOC's dog agility trials are at the same location in July and January.
"The Regional German Shepherd Club has all-breed obedience and rally trials in Colorado Springs in September each year. There are obedience trials in Brighton, Durango, Longmont, Greeley and Pueblo. In addition, agility trials are in Colorado about 45 weekends a year.” There’s not one Web site covering all of the events but a reader said to go to akc.org for many Colorado shows.
A reader called to say that Frisbee dogs — possibly 60-80 teams — will be competing June 3 at Bear Creek Park (coloradodiscdogs.com).
You’ll find these events in The Gazette calendars, in the Saturday pet coverage in The Gazette's Life and in Look Out on A2.
