Messenger Dog

The year 2013 is a special year for the Belgian Sheepdog Club of America's Messenger Dog Committee. Not only is it the 10 Year Anniversary of the Future Messenger Dog Event, but 100 years ago in the spring of 1913 the Belgian Sheepdog, Taki, was born.   We're planning historical exhibits and presentations to celebrate the courage and dedication of the incredible ancestors of our breed. Learn how these smugglers of contraband tobacco became the most valued couriers on the battlefields. We'll demo our next level, the Junior Messenger Dog Evaluation, and hold FMD and JMD evaluations throughout the day, Thursday. If your dog has an FMD, come try the next stage! Medallions for the 2013 FMD and JMD qualifiers are engraved commemorative dog tags on red/white/blue ribbon.
