New this year we will be introducing the community to GRC (Gameness – Responsibility – Control) DogSports. The mission of GRC Dogsports is to provide PEOPLE with the motivation to give their dogs the training they need to thrive in this world, and a healthy place to put all of their natural drives. GRC DogSports brings back the old games to show not just the amazing gameness and relationship, but also the control and teamwork you can achieve through training. This is a fun way to train with your dog. You won’t want to miss stopping by and learning more about this. The event will run from 10:00am – 4:00pm, Saturday, July 13, 2024 inside the Quincy Town Center.
