I know I can't wait!!! :dance:
Although I'm not sure if we can enter in other things as well,it says on the website that the events are open to all bully breeds.But maybe not everything?I'll try to find more info on that!

It's likely that everything except conformation is open to other bull breeds, I've participated in working/fun events at AB shows. Xanny's actually an NKC Champion, and she's done tug of war, hardest hitting, protection tournaments, sprint races, Iron Dog, and WABA testing at bulldog events.
I believe that Stonewall Kennel is hosting protection, Keith O'Sullivan is a very good trainer/decoy. The weight pull is APA, so that's open to all dogs. I believe they're doing WABA (Working American Bulldog Association) testing, but you need a scorebook for that, and they're also doing Iron Dog (weight pull, hardest hitting, sprint race).

Yeah that's what I thought!
But with the weight pull,I don't think we can enter in anything else.But will be fun to watch for sure!!!
See you there Leslie! :)

These guys are about a thousand times more casual than UKC. You'll probably have time to do more stuff than you think.

Thanks Leslie!
More questions! :oops:
There is a 9 am WP,and the 1 PM APA WP.Do you know what is that morning WP?
Also what is the Biggest Baddest Bi-otch Competition?Is it bite work?
Also I don't see the sprint race in the schedule,do you think we can enter in that one? :|
I always wanted to try that out,and probably would enter the Monkey too,to tire him out a little... :smileUp:
Thank you for your patience!!! :)

I don't know what's going on in the 9 am weight pull, it may be a typo.
Beast/Biotch (I've never actually said or written that word before) of the East, etc, is for the biggest, most overdone ab, not really a title you'd want to be trying for.
They probably will do a sprint race, probably just forgot to list it. And I imagine they'll do a puppy sprint race too.

Oh I see!
So the 2:30 PM Beast of the East Competition will be a conformation too then.
I thought it's all bite work... :)
Yes,I really hope we can enter in the sprint race,well I guess we'll see at the show! :)
Thank you Leslie! :)

Hell yeah!!!! :D :wink:
But in the schedule it says wheels,or they forgot to change it?
So they kinda reduced the events huh?No sprint race or ID ? :|

ETA how many passes can we have at the APA pulls?I hope they let us right?

Thank you for the updates Leslie!!

W/APA, you come in at whatever weight you want, and you have unlimited passes.

Ellie, be forwarned, these are very casual shows, they tend to move along at their own slow pace. The pull itself is APA, so that should be run well. I noticed the times listed for the pull on the link are different than those on the APA site http://www.weightpull.com it's the times on the APA site that are correct.

It was certainly a tough track. I'm glad you made it out Ellie, though I'm sorry it wasn't a smoother track. Believe it or not, it was much tougher on Sunday. Soleil only pulled the empty cart, she couldn't even get the second increment. Yikes. I let Xanny play in hardest hitting on Sunday, so at least she was happy. Did you get any other pictures by any chance?
