Once again, we're offering our Pull Training Clinic to help get dogs and their owners started in dog-powered sports! This clinic only happens twice a year. Now's the best time to sign up, as CSDC members begin Fall Training shortly after the clinic. Clinic attendees can jump right into the real deal after learning all the basics! This is how many of us got "hooked." Learn more and register here.
Time to join CSDC or renew your membership for the 2015/2016 season!
It’s super easy, just click here for details, you can pay online or via mail. Either way you choose, please remember to fill out the membership online form on that page; it helps keep all our info current and reminds us what you’re interested in volunteering for!
The club puts on several events (weather permitting) and your dues money helps to fund those, as well as the club's efforts advocating for trail access to train our teams on and securing new venues for possible dryland events. We rely on your support to continue these efforts. Without the membership we wouldn’t have this resource, or a united voice to help protect our access.
Our annual CSDC end-of-year awards banquet is quickly approaching!
Come see who takes home the prize for "Musher of the Year," "Most Improved Musher," "Whoa, Dammit, Whoa" and more!
The banquet is being held at member Heidi & Peter's home in NE Portland on Saturday, May 16th at 4pm. All are welcome, but please RSVP for address and head count.
Potluck meal - bring a dish to share. No dogs, please.
Teach your dog to pull for all sorts of canine-powered sports! We're offering our community Pull Clinic Training on Saturday, April 18th in Estacada, Oregon. Registration for this Clinic is now closed. Please visit our Pull Clinic page to contact us for more information about our next clinic!
