Note from Partners

With the show season over half way and many people are looking forward and making plans for their 2022 Events CDW asks the following:

  • Please post events on the CDW Calendar. This is so important.
  • When planning dates for shows or clinics please check the CDW Calendar first
  • If you know of a previous standing CDW event before scheduling your event please reach out so that events are not scheduled on top of each other.(unfortunately not all events get listed on the calendar.)

The above requests will help the success of each event and attendees greatly. Teamwork will strengthen each event. Thank you.

Happy Trails and hope to see many of you in October!
