Join us in beautiful Upstate New York this fall!
Close enough for a visit to New York City or Niagara Falls on your way.
Cooperstown, Thousand Islands, Erie Canal, & more!

Upstate New York is a “foodie” destination with Wineries, Craft Breweries, many Farmers Markets and even Wegmans!

The 2016 National is being hosted by the CDCA Board of Directors, Amy Preston, Chair. Due to Rosh Hashanah starting at sundown on Sunday the 2nd, the schedule has been adjusted so that those needing to get home before the holiday may do so.

We will work with the Cluster for Breed ring times that will lessen conflicts with Obedience & Rally. Best of Breed/BOBOH Winners each day will continue to their Groups. THE WINE COUNTRY CIRCUIT offers Obedience, Rally & Junior Showmanship all four days of the circuit and NOHS the first three. Four days of Agility (Host Club - Finger Lakes Kennel Club) with three days including Premiere Classes. CAT tests are hosted by LAKE COUNTRY LURE COURSERS. Health Clinics with Clinicians from Cornell University are offered.

Education Seminar - after BIS
Getting Started In Herding With Canaan Dogs

You've Been To The CDCA Herding Test, Now What? Presenter: Shelley Wurst
- Host Hotel, Holiday Inn Waterloo/Seneca Fall, Waterloo NY

Meet Shelley Wurst: “I started herding with my first Collie in 1997. A year later, at the Collie Nationals, I was approached and asked to help get other Collie owners started in herding. I have been teaching herding lessons to all herding breeds since. I have successfully competed in AKC, ASCA, AHBA, and ISDS trials, have earned advanced titles and a Herding Championship, and have won High in Trial at the Collie Nationals.
I am now working with my own 6 month old Canaan Dog puppy and his littermates & mother, and would love to see other Canaan Dog owners herding with their dogs beyond the basic instinct levels. This is a breed with a lot of innate ability!” Shelley may be familiar to some already as she has been sharing the training of her puppy on the Facebook page Canaan Dogs Herding.
