Event Notes

Competitor shirts:
We are trying something new this year.
When you register for Nationals you will be ordering your competitor shirt at that time. (they say Competitor on them)
We would like to give competitors the option to order more shirts and/or Holder shirts (they say Holder on them) so you will be given a one time code to cover the cost of ordering your competitor shirt.

If you would like extra competitor shirts or holder shirts you will be able to purchase those as well when you register for $25.00 each. You will pick those up when you check in at Nationals. (we will NOT ship them)

Starting the end of this week, we will have a pre order for regular 2023 National Championship speciality gear (hoodies, zips etc).
Those will be available by pre order only and for pick up at Nationals ONLY. We will not ship them.
Preorders must be paid for at the time of purchase and picked up at nationals.

We will have a limited selection of NADD & 2023 Nationals t-shirts & stickers available for sale at nationals.



The purpose of the National Championship is to create a premier dog event where we can highlight the best dogs in each division.
