SKOWHEGAN — More than 100 dogs and their handlers will compete from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday, July 27-29, at the Skowhegan State Fairgrounds at a two-ring agility trial. The trial is hosted by Eastern Maine Agility Club and sanctioned by Canine Performance Events. Dog-and-handler teams will compete in games at all levels that include Snooker, Wildcard, Fullhouse and Jumpers, as well as Standard courses. Championship ribbons will be awarded.

“We look forward to this trial every year” said club president Bob Hamlyn in a news release.

“In addition to it being EMAC’s biggest trial of the year, it’s a ton of fun with a great group of people, lots of laughing, sharing awesome food and having a blast with our dogs!” Hamlyn said.

Spectators are welcome to attend the trial each day at no cost.

Eastern Maine Agility Club is a nonprofit organization.
