ROCKLAND, Maine – As the zany and light-hearted 9th Annual World Championship Boatyard Dog® Trials approach, Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show organizers have some serious questions for the canine community: Does your tail wag faster when you dream of the roar of the crowd? Does the breeze off the bay entice you to strut your stuff? In short, are you dog enough to compete in the World Championship Boatyard Dog Trials? If the answers are yes, then please cast your paw into the ring for a chance to stand up, sit down, and roll over before an adoring crowd.
The trials will be held August 14, at 10:30 a.m., as part of the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show. Any well-behaved dog is eligible to apply, but preference will be given to those that work in a boatyard, crew on a boat, or direct operations of any kind on the waterfront (or think they do).
