Northwest Chapter Fall Test

Breed Testing Events

Coming to a test is a great way to see our dogs, learn about our breeding and testing program, and determine if you would like to get a dog and become part of the action. Visitors are normally welcome to view the test. Please understand that there may be restrictions in Fall 2020 due to COVID-19 precautions. If you are already a member, please consider attending and volunteering too! 

We have generally been sharing testing events with the Rocky Mountain Chapter; spring tests are conducted in Idaho with the Rocky Mountain group and we hold the Fall test in Washington.
