Happy New Year to all of our members and readers. Today we have officially been moved to AKC's Miscellaneous class!

We hope to see you in the conformation ring!
We're trying something new. We have our new website, so why not use it to its fullest extent! You can find our December issue of the newsletter below. Enjoy!
The 2013 Norrbottenspets Specialty was a hit! It was held in conjunction with the Cascade Coursing Club's Lure Coursing trial in North Bend, WA. This year's turnout was nearly double that of 2012. We had 18 dogs and 15 people attend. While not everyone showed up to participate in the show, everyone enjoyed the opportunity to meet other Norrbottenspets and owners. For many of the attendees, this was their first experience with Lure Coursing.
AKC has accepted ANA's request to have Norrbottenspets advanced to AKC's Miscellaneous Class - effective January 1, 2014. They have also designated ANA as the Parent Club. Norrbottenspets will now have greater opportunities to compete in conformation. Time to get out with your dog and earn a Certificate of Merit!
ANA held the first Norrbottenspets Specialty show in Ethel, WA. Twelve people and ten dogs attended. It was a great outcome for our first show.
