News Flash: Sunday 9/30/18 Regarding Session IV & V, as "Joe Friday" used to say: "Just the facts, ma'am" and here is the info for (first) Session V orientation will be held Monday Oct 8th, at 6:30. (secondly) this note is specially for our Students enrolled in Session IV will receive a $50 credit towards the next session for classes missed due to the storm. Now, for a look behind the scenes at your Instructors, Assistants and every Member who could; have put in 2 full days addressing the damages to our Training Facility. My internet access has been "gone with the wind" up to and including late last night! Special thanks to Stephanie and Bryan!, who got me up and running this afternoon. Our ADTC Family lost a wise and dear member, so we are mourning her greatly, at the same time we are all getting back on our feet from the storm.

Example of format for last year’s Indoor All Obedience S’N’G

Below is a sample of how our S’N’G’s run:

Indoor SNG’s are held in our climate controlled training facility, rain or shine.

Outdoor SNG’s are held in the Spring and/or Fall usually at one of Wilmington’s lovely parks; we generally hold Traditional Obedience, Rally & Agility when we have the space outdoors.

ENTRY FEES: all runs will cost $5 each

In response to Students and other Exhibitors’ asking when we will be holding an indoor SnG, in our Climate Controlled Training Facility, we will be hosting same on Saturday, 8/26/2017!  Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us for a great training opportunity!  We have experienced folks calling the various levels of Obedience and Rally and in addition to that, we generally have exhibitors who are beautiful examples of what we all strive for in the ring ourselves!  On a personal note, I find learning from successful handlers is a wonderful tool in the learning curve!

As ya’ll know, we do our best to have our indoor Show ‘N’ Go mimic a real Trial (tho, please note our ring is not regulation sized), so please bring your chair(s) and crate(s) and plan on working your dog(s) and having fun with old friends and new!!

 Doors open at 7:30 am (please note earlier start time) for registration and getting your dogs walked and prepared for their turn in the ring.  Rally walk thrus begin at 7:50 am, with Excellent Rally runs beginning at 8 am with the lesser levels following.  We will finish all Rally runs before starting the Traditional Obedience runs, aiming at 1 pm as start time for Traditional Obedience runs.  

Run Thru’s open to all Obedience trained dogs!  However, we request that you only do Run Thru’s at the levels at which you are currently working.  In a Run Thru, there no time for a ‘caller’ to teach an exercise!

As always, we pay close attention to input from you, our friends, our exhibitors and we continue with the following format for our Show ‘N’ Go presentation:

#1  Exhibitors’ runs will be timed.  Time limits will be as follows: Utility 8 minutes, Open 7 minutes, Novice, (not including stationeries).  In Rally all four levels will be timed at 4 minutes.  So whether you wish to do a true Run Thru or simply want to practice on some element of the level on which you are working, the floor is yours for the stated times!

#2 The fragrance of ‘human’ food makes concentrating on the tasks in the ring really hard for some of the Canine Halves of our participating Teams, so please “no food in the building”!  We’re hoping that by our setting Utility (starting no earlier than 11 am) and Novice (starting no earlier than 1:30 pm), that this will enable everyone to take a lunch break and not have to sit and wait hungry and tired, all day!!

#3  Please be bring your pupsters’ vaccination records, specially Rabies.  You will not be prevented from running your dogs as you wish, but with the latest Flu issue, it would be comforting knowing all dogs in attendance have been vaccinated.

REGISTRATION for Rally Obedience will be conducted from 7:30 am until 8 am. The Excellent Walk Thru begins at 7:50 am!  Advanced and Novice courses will follow.  Latecomers’ entries will be accepted if the level in which they need to practice is not finished!  We will not be able to accommodate latecomers by resetting the ring level for either Rally or Traditional Obedience.

REGISTRATION for Traditional Obedience will be held all morning, and into the afternoon, as needed, with Utility beginning no earlier than 1 pm.  Lesser levels of Traditional Obedience will follow.


Show ‘N’ Go’s are not judged, but have ‘callers’.

ADTC can be found on the web at  Directions to ADTC’s Training Facility on the website!  Please note we are located off Hwy 17 and NOT on Shearwater Drive in Hampstead!

Cold Drinks will be available on the show site, for a small fee!!  Be considerate of your fellow Exhibitors, no “human” food in the building, please!  (THANK YOU so much!!)

 Please be a responsible show person……remember, clean up after your dog! And we’re trying to make “our front yard” a “no potty” zone, so please try to guide your dog(s) to either our side or back yards. We provide poop bags and pooper scoopers for your convenience. Thank you!
