Keeshond agility test will be May 5
The Haywood County Fairgrounds is once again "going to the dogs."
The Keeshond Club of America will hold an AKC agility trial at 9 a.m. Monday, May 5, in the Great Smokies Arena. This trial is for Keeshonds only, and will draw about 50 teams from all over the country. This event is one of many activities included in the breed's national specialty. Other events, including conformation, obedience and rally competitions and educational seminars, will be held from May 4-10 at the Asheville Crowne Plaza Resort.

The Keeshond is a heavily coated ancient Nordic breed that is known as one of the very few which throughout history has always been raised for family companions and watchdogs. The fact that they have not been bred to hunt, kill animals, attack or chase criminals undoubtedly accounts for their gentle, intelligent devotion to their owners as home-loving dogs with a special fondness for children, for which they are renowned.
