Does my dog have to be a purebred dog for us to become members? No. Our club focuses on people having fun with their dog(s), be they purebred or mixed breed. Any of our classes and practices and fun events can be entered by you and your mixed breed dog.
Can I come to a Board meeting even though I'm not on the Board?
We'd be delighted if you came to the meetings. They are open to any club member and to people who are interested in applying for membership. Board meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m. General membership meetings follow the program for the evening scheduled for  7p.m. Check with one of the Board Members to find out where the next meeting will be held.
Where are the classes held for obedience training and agility?


Classes for Obedience are held at Bloedel Donovan Park's Community Building starting at 7 p.m. when they are running. Check under Obedience for more information.

Agility classes are held at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds, Walton Beverage Arena, in Lynden.  Classes begin at 6:30 p.m. when running, which is most of the time. Check the Agility page for more information on these classes.

I want to come and watch one of your events at the Lynden fairgrounds.



Each February, March, May, July, October, and November, CDTA holds special events for dog owners throughout the Pacific Northwest and BC. Two of these events (February and July) are AKC Agility trials where dogs participate in standard and jumpers courses and two games. In November there is an Obedience trial with both traditional obedience and now Rally obedience events included. These events are held at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds. In May and October (sometimes) the events are NADAC sponsored Agility trials with lots of fun games including tunneler runs, touch-n-go and weavers. These two are held in Mount Vernon at Fun Fur Paws. In March and November the club holds Tracking tests in Bow. 

Is there any charge for attending one of the special events?


We are always delighted to have people come and watch the trials. There is no charge for entry and there is plenty of seating in the bleachers on the west side of the Horse Arena for the agility trials and the obedience trial. 

Can I bring my dog to one of the special events?


CDTA asks that you leave your own dog at home or in your vehicle when attending any of the special events the club puts on.
