Gallatin Dog Club obed & rally: online entry!

New this year — the Gallatin Dog Club is offering the convenience of online entry for the March obedience and rally trials! You’ll need a free account at Here is the event page at Zooza. Similar to AKC’S online agility entry, Zooza collects a small fee if you choose to use their service (the club receives only your actual entry fees, including the AKC fees that are in turn passed along to AKC after the events). Of course, you can still enter by completing and mailing entry forms with fees. Your choice! And even if you mail your entry fees, you can pay for your lunches and pre-ordered catalogs at Zooza (no fees!).

PSA: Judges needed for 4-H Dog Program in Missoula County!

How is your public service-o-meter looking for 2015? Here is an opportunity!

Hi my name is Julia Kolb and I represent the 4H dog program for Missoula County. I am looking for obedience and showmanship judges [one each] for our dog show on July 25, 2015. This show is part of the fair program. … Our members range from ages 9 to 16 and the dogs range from 6 mos to 10 years.

We have two rings going at the same time.  One ring is strictly obedience with several levels one at a time.  The other is Junior showmanship and when obedience is done they do Senior Showmanship.  This will last from 9:00 to approx. 2:00pm.  I would like to get commitments before the end of May due to submitting to the Fair office.  They do offer a $50.00 fee or admittance to fair shows  for the judges.  I know it’s not much but we are here for the kids mostly.  I try every year to get judges that do not know the kids competing.
