  • Everything Shed Dog and the Happenings at DeerFest 2013 July 26th-28- Oshkosh, WI

    We are excited to be exhibiting at Oshkosh, WI DeerFest this year!  More than anything we are pumped to get to meet so many customers that we see their names everyday and loyally serve them as online customers but now we actually get to shake their hands and talk about how their training is going!  Meeting and chatting with our customers is by far the part of our jobs we love the most!

    2013 DeerFest Schedule- Shed Dog

    In additional to meeting so many great folks we will get to observe and encourage some many NASHDA hunt test participates.  July 26-28th is the first round of the NASHDA hunt test circuit, and will be hosted by Mr. Tom Dokken on the actual DeerFest grounds.  This event is growing rapidly again and the participants have greatly increased over last year, which is a great sign the sport is rapidly growing.  This is a great event for the sport of shed dog hunting and training, and really exposes how cool it is to the thousands of attendees that may not be as familiar with it.

    Two most well know personalities in the outdoor world Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, Hosts of “The Crush TV Show” are going to be at the show speaking.  They have long been addicted to the this popularly growing sport and have been great for the growth and popularity of shed dog hunting.  They have even participated in past years events, which has brought additional notoriety to the sport and helped it to grow.

    We are also proud of to be associated with Mr. Jeremy Moore and Dog Bone Shed Training Products, which will be doing training seminars and speaking at the show.  Jeremy is a great guy that loves to train shed dogs (and is dang good at it may we add) and makes some amazing shed dog training products as well.  Jeremy will also be hosting  “Hunters TV” dog "headhunter Sadie" all 3 days.  There will also be an outside area Dog Bone sponsored all 3 days for kids to do a shed hunting and check out some cute brand new puppies (seriously who does not like puppies).

  • 2014 NASHDA Qualifying Event Hunt Test Rules

    NASHDA Hunt Test Rules

    North America Shed Hunting Dog Association (NASHDA)

    2014 Qualifying Event/ Junior Shed Dog Hunt Test Rules

    In Qualifying Events, Dogs will compete against a standard to receive a ribbon, not each other.

    NASHDA’s goal is to create a fun event for those looking to use their dogs to find shed antlers. Our Qualifying Events run from May 1st to the season ending World Shed Dog Championship in April.

    Qualifying events will be set during the season to give dogs a chance to Qualify for that season ending NASHDA World Shed Dog Championship. In qualifying events, the dogs will compete against a standard and not each other to receive a Qualifying ribbon. Once a dog receives a Qualifying ribbon they will be invited to enter the World Shed Dog Championship at the end of that season. The season starts over again each May 1st.

    Qualifying events may also be listed as a Shed Dog Hunt test. For the hunt test, the dogs compete against the Qualifying standard and not each other. Dogs that Qualify at an event marked a NASHDA Shed Dog Hunt Test will earn a NASHDA Shed Hunting Dog Junior leg/ribbon. Once a dog receives 6 leg/ribbons they will receive a NASHDA Junior Shed Hunting Dog certificate. Leg ribbons can be accumulated over multiple seasons. Junior in the NASHDA hunt test division is a description of course difficulty, not age of the dog.

    General Rules

    1) Remote training collars are permitted as well as whistles and beeper collars. Remote collars must be used in a responsible humane manner. No GPS tracking collars or GPS devices allowed.

    2) This is a walking event. No running. A judges warning will be followed by disqualification for a second infraction.

  • Chillin At NASHDA- Behind the Scense 2013 Shed Dog Trials

    One of the neatest aspects about the NASHDA (North American Shed Hunting Dog Association) events is the feeling that the competitors and attendees are there to help one another out and cheer each and their dogs on in the field work and the sidelines.  It is different from many other sporting events I have been to.  There is just a sense of community and willingness to build each other and their dogs up, instead of tear each other down.  I would say this is fairly common in the dog training and trial world but it seems even more present here!  What can I say Shed doggers rock and EverythingShedDog.com is proud to be apart of the shed antler dog training and trial community.

  • 2013 NASHDA Shed Hunting Dog World Championships- Finalist and Winners Announced!

    Day two of the 2013 world shed dog championships was a brutal day from a weather prospective!  The 32 degree day with freezing rain/snow/ rain and 30+ MPH winds was tough on the human competitors but the shed dogs did not seem to mind in the least.  It is amazing how focused and excited those dogs get to go find antlers.  Despite the conditions the spirits were high and the energy of the competitors was charged with the titles and trophies of Junior, Amateur, and Professional that were on the line.

    The competition started at 9:00 am, after a brief handlers meeting that provided details and the final lineup of the day.  The cell phones of the competitors where even checked in so there would not be any information passed along to the handlers that were still scheduled to run the coarse later in the day.   After that the competition was off and running with a day full of exciting competition!

    At the end of a windy snowy day the podium was filled with smiling faces and happy dogs!  EverythingShedDog.com wants to congratulate all the winners and folks that participated in this year’s 2013 World Shed Dog Trails.

    Open Division Winner- Owner (Megan Harten) & Dog (Remi)- (Dog Handler Josh Miller)

    Amateur division Winner- Owner (Parker Uhlman) & Dog Dee Dee

    Junior Division Winner-Owner Aaron Palbrach & Dog Kale

    On top of this being a great completion our team is always amazed at the atmosphere of the shed dog competition events.  Of course, the dogs and trainers want to win but it is the classiness of the trainers and dog handlers that is amazing.  They are always there to help each other and provide a helping hand to another competitor you’re their dog if needed.  It is truly like no other event we have been to; it reminds me of a large family reunion.  Even the dinner and banquet that takes place on Saturday night of championship weekend is filled with great times, good laughs, and tons of group comradely!

    Next year we would encourage you to get involved and see what an awesome experience the NASHDA qualifiers and shed dog hunting world championships are.  You and your shed hunting dog will not be disappointed in how fun and entertaining the event is and the comradely of the atmosphere.

  • 2013 NASHDA Shed Dog World Championships: 37 Dogs Competing for Top Prize

    EverythingShedDog.com is so proud to sponsor such an awesome weekend, packed with amazing shed hunting dogs that have tremendous talent and trainers that have truly done an amazing job preparing their shed antler finding dogs!  The condition did not seem ideal for finding sheds, with sub-freezing temperatures and completely snow covered ground, but the weather did not seem to affect the dogs or the trainers, there were some really fast times turned in on the first day of shed antler hunting competition.

    NASHDA-Rochester Shed Dog Trail

    The first day of completion consisted of 37 dogs (more than double the 2012 World Championships) that qualified for the world championships at 6 qualifying events that were held throughout 2012 and 2013 around the country.  Each shed hunting dog and trainer that qualified at those events was invited to attend the NASHDA Championship event, which is being held at Tom Dokken's Oak Ridge Kennel in Northfield, MN.  Of the 37 dogs that competed on day one of the event, only 20 of the fastest times will move on to compete in the finials on day two.  There are three classes of contestants- Juniors, Amateur, and Professional.

    There is no shortage of competition, with several returning champion dogs and trainers such as Josh Miller, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, and Linda Profant that are bringing experience and stiff competition.  Day ones competition is still underway, as I write this article and I will be updating everyone as things are finalized and we have the complete list of competitors that will be competing on day two of the North American Shed Hunting Dog Association, on Sunday April 14th 2013!  We are so excited to see how day one ends up and to watch how the finals play out tomorrow!

    Shed Dog Championships- EverythingShedDog

    A special thank you to Tom Dokken, all the folks at his Oak Ridge Kennels, and all the volunteers for putting on such a classy and well run event!
