Trials and ORTs

Nose Work Trials

Centralia, WA — NW2, L2C & L2I 

Saturday & Sunday, July 10 & 11, 2021

Premium:  Available on About Face K9 Academy website

Reminder: Effective April 1, 2021 a dog must have achieved their ORT title (passed all 3 odors) and prior title level at least 14 days before the trial opens for entries.
If your dog does not have their ORT title, you may enter the trial and will have two options:
1) If you are in an ORT before the trial date and you get in the trial, you will have to pay to hold your space in the trial. If you do not pass your ORT, you will go on the FEO wait list or can withdraw. Cancellation fees as per the premium will apply.
2) If you do not have your ORT title and no chance to get it before the trial, you can enter For Exhibit Only (FEO). Please note “FEO” in the comments section during the entry process. This is a great opportunity to experience a real trial setting and practice real trial hides. Dogs running FEO are not eligible to receive titles or earn placement ribbons. FEO results will not be included in the posted trial results.
