*UPDATE*  It has been brought to our attention that there are a few people who would like to run 3 dogs in a class at the Finals.  Given our number of entries, we believe we can reasonably accommodate this request.

If you would like to add an additional dog, who meets the 5 trial qualification criteria, please email Linda immediately, but no later than Friday, 10/29.

Only two premiums will be paid per handler per class.


Online entry will be utilized. To be eligible for the State Finals, a dog must compete in 5 TSDA trials (each trial a “Qualifying Run”) in its class during the year of the State Finals. For more details, see the TSDA Rules.


The Finals is considered one trial with two runs.  Your total $75 entry covers both runs; $55 to the payback and $20 to trial expenses.  Payment is due no later than 10/18 or your entry will be deleted.  Make checks payable to TSDA and mail to Linda Spindor.


Your entry fee also includes dinner on Friday and Saturday night for the handler + one guest.  Additional guests are welcome for $15 each (adults) or $10 (children).  Please RSVP to Linda by 10/15 so we can give the caterer an accurate headcount.  Include payment for additional guests with entry fees.


Points and payback will be based on the combined scores of the two runs and per TSDA guidelines.
