Regional Specialty & Supported Entries

The PWDCNC Regional Specialty is held in November annually. Our Specialty is a full day, with plenty for all to do, including conformation, sweepstakes, obedience & rally trials, Parada dos Amigos, non-stop hospitality all at one beautiful location. Usually the event is the day prior to a weekend-long dog show. Visit our Regional Specialty page for more information.

Water Trial

The PWDCNC Water Trial is so popular, that we have to hold it in two separate trial rings to accommodate every PWD who wants to compete! Normally a 3-day event, literally sun-up to sun-down, you can find the PWDCNC Water Trial at Shadow Cliffs Regional Park in Pleasanton, CA. For more information, visit our Water Trial page.

Agility Trial

PWDCNC Agility Trials are open to all breeds, but we love to watch our PWDs weave & jump most! Whether you’re a novice or a “MACH”, our agility trials are lively events occurring in locations such as Placerville, Sacramento and the Greater Bay Area. For more specific information, check out our Calendar!
