The member-sponsored prizes awarded at our Fall Obedience and Rally Trials were a great success.  THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR GENEROUS DONORS!!

So many different people won that it made it really fun.  This time it would be great to see even more teams earn prizes.  The minimum donation is only $10. An ongoing goal is to have CABTC members support their breed by offering a prize.

Only cash or gas gift cards will be awarded.  The choice belongs to the donor.

This year the Trial committee is asking that any donor who wins the award they donated pass it on to the next eligible team.

Attached to this month’s Loose Leads is a form that should be completed and returned to Betsy Kapp along with your check. Her address is on the form. Any questions – email Betsy at or call her at 216-407-2233.

IMPORTANT: The deadline for receipt of all checks is Friday, July 24, 2015.  Because of the lead-time needed to put together the Obedience Trial Premium, we MUST have all checks no later than July 24, 2015.

If we have multiple donors for the same award, the prizes will be combined.  All donations become the property of Cleveland All-Breed Training Club.


Sunday’s Awards will no longer be class specific.


Again this year: High Combined for Rally for competitors competing in both the Advanced B and Excellent B Rally classes. This has been a well received award at our Rally Trials the past few years.


Thank you again to our members who previously contributed to these awards. It is a great tradition and your support is much appreciated. The goal remains to make our Fall 2015 Obedience and Rally Trials even more enjoyable for our exhibitors and that might include you!!!

CABTC Agility Run Thru!

Saturday, May 23, 2015

We are going to continue the use of the new format (which is now NOT new) and people can book in time slots of 15 minutes between the hours of 9:00 am up to 3:00 pm.

Although I have received positive feedback, there have also been requests to consider the old way of doing the run thru as they would like their dog to experience the comparable environment of a trial.  This is not being considered at this time BUT I have a solution for those people to consider.

Build your own environment of "confusion and anxiety" and market your friends and dogs to participate in our run thru. The times are sold as 15 minutes, but why not have some friends and their dogs join you and purchase additional time.  You can make your own group, creating distractions and helping you through your problem areas.  Some people are doing this - successfully! 

CABTC building will be available in pre-reserved 15 minute increments @ $20.00 each.  You can use this time alone or get a small group of friends and purchase a block of time to share. 

Available runs will start at 9:00 am and the last booking will be at 2:45 pm. 

ALL spots must be reserved in advance and your request will be confirmed prior to the date of the run thru.  It is on a first come-first accepted basis!  We had a wait list for our first attempt.

The deadline to book is Wednesday May 20, 2015
