Well, the first NASHDA (North American Shed Hunting Dog Association) event at the historic West Allis Kennel Club in West Allis WI went off in premium fashion September 7th, 2014. This certainly is not the clubs first rodeo at throwing dog events, the club has been holding it’s annual September Jamboree for over 60 years, so you can say they are good at this kind of thing!
This was the first year that the jamboree hosted the shed dog NASHDA event and it was very successful by all accounts. They had 12 dogs register for the event prior to the event and the morning of September 7th. Of those 12 dogs, 9 of them were successful in passing all the requirements to receive a ribbon and be eligible to attend the shed dog world championships in Northfield MN April 19-20, 2014. On behalf of EverythingShedDog.com, congratulation to all that participated and qualified.

“We felt the shed dog trial event was extremely successful and made for a memorable day for all involved!” Brian Schlomann, Shed Dog Event Director at West Allis Kennel Club.
The fastest run of the day was Destiny with Lacey coming in at 4:47. It was also Lacey's Title run and Destiny's twelfth birthday!!!! What a day they had. The youngest shed dog handler of the day was 10 year old Colin Bollman with Guage. How cool when you start seeing kids and the younger generation getting into this sport, this is very encouraging!
