Got questions? Send us an email below. But before you do that, here are some FAQs:
I am thinking about coming to an AAC event. Do I have to be a member? Do I have to pre-register for anything?
No to both questions. Come on out!
Does my dog need to have a certain skill level to join in a competition/event/exhibition?
Nope! A focus on friendly, fun activities is our prime directive. Come on out and give it a try!
We’d like to have AAC come out to our venue for a demo or competition. Do you do that? What’s the deal?
Sure, it can’t hurt to ask. The space requirement for one of our competition events is approximately 250′ x 100′ of unobstructed flat lawn area. We can adjust our games to fit smaller spaces when necessary, but those are the optimal dimensions. A competition typically brings in about 40 dogs and runs for 4 hours — another hour or two is required for set-up, registration, and tear-down.
We often do demonstrations on a much smaller scale (3+ dogs, 50’ diameter, 30 minutes to an hour depending on the number of dogs we have and weather conditions).
We encourage our individual club members to coordinate/host events in their area and use club resources to manage the event. That way, we don’t have the same few people doing all the work for our club events which stretch from northern VA to central PA, and we get a nice variety of venues to play our games.
The first step is to send us an e-mail. We’ll get back to you within a few days.
