What People are saying about NADAC:
I wanted to take a moment and let you know how I felt about my experience this past weekend at the Dogs on Q agility trial.
I had never previously seen a NADAC trial. A friend recommended that I try it with my Norwegian Elkhound as she has been struggling in other venues. So I registered my dog. Even though I had read all the rules, I was still a bit confused on which classes I should try. So I sent emails with questions and got wonderfully helpful replies.
And Wow! What a GREAT time we had. The atmosphere was much more laid back than I was used to. Which was just what we needed. But laid back in no way means unorganized. The trial was SO well run. So very efficient, but not rushed. So many club members building courses, so the next round could start quickly. Everyone jumping in to help. One member even offered to take me around and show me things, if I had questions. Talk about being blown away for my first NADAC experience!
I will definitely attend more trials put on by this club. Just fantastic!!
Oh and after our last run of the day, so many people came up and told me what a beautiful run we had in Hoopers. So welcoming and so nice!!!
Dogs on Q, Kansas City
Hello, NADAC – I have been away from your venue for years, but I must tell you that I was SO pleasantly surprised by the excellence we experienced last weekend!
The Dogs O Q trial at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, Lawrence Kansas – September 13, 14, 15 was well organized, well run, had excellent rubberized contact equipment, and the Secretary and all of the Event Committee were very courteous and responsive. I had no problem at all finding out about particular regulations, new Gambler class rules, etc. Everyone was extremely helpful.
As the handler of a young dog, I also appreciated their treatment of ring dividers and management of air flow with the large open doors that had screened panels covering them to prevent inadvertent dog escapes.
I can’t say how impressed I was by everything DOQ arranged, from the choice of judge to the trial management to the surface grooming to the hospitality, they had it all – in spades!
I highly recommend this club’s trials, and have encouraged my agility buddies to take another look at NADAC, now with DOQ, in the Kansas City area.
