  • 2019 Brenham SDT
    IMPORTANT!

    Entries have slowed down but it has become apparent that we have more dogs than we can accommodate in our original Wednesday through Sunday schedule. Therefore, to give everyone the opportunity to run both dogs, we will be starting the trial on Tuesday, February 19th. So ... the new schedule will be:

    Open 1 Tuesday and Wednesday
    Open 2 Thursday and Friday
    Nursery will run both trials on Saturday
    Double Lift will be Sunday

    The handlers meeting will now be Tuesday morning.

  • The winner of the Double Lift Finals at the Brenham Trial will receive an invitation to Soldier Hollow.  They will putting information about our trial on their web site.  Soldier Hollow is an invitational trial so it is an honor to be asked to compete in the trial.  Over the year TSDA has had several handlers invited to enter.
