Calling All Canines - 9th Annual World Championship Boatyard Dog® Trials

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).

Support the Brunswick Dog Park

This is the first issue of the Brunswick Dog Park e-Newsletter. We will be updating you once per month (or more often as events dictate) about our progress towards creating a safe, fenced exercise area for your dog(s). We have spent a year researching locations and are very happy to announce that the Brunswick Town Council has given us their blessing to raise funds to build a 1.2 acre dog park along the Androscoggin Bike Path. We hope to raise the funds by fall 2011. 

Visit our website at for more information about the site and design of the park.
