Located in Yakima Washington June 23, 24, 25 of 2006
Striving to help provide better owners,
through better education.
This year we expect our
Second Annual Washington Fila Weekend to be even better then last
year's. We have more activities planned for all ages of both people and
dogs. We will have educational seminars as well as a mock dog show for
you and your dog to enter. Fun will be had by everyone. And at the end
of the day you are more than welcome to sit back, relax and share
stories of the day's events. We are certain there will be plenty of
socializing to be had!
This schedule is subject to change due to the weather but we
will have fun come rain or shine! Children are welcome
however it will be your job to ensure their saftey and restrict their
access to the dogs and/or any unsafe situation. We will not
provide babysitting. Dogs must be leashed or crated at all times.
Uncontrolled or unattended dogs or children will be removed from the
premesis for the safety of all concerned.
year we will hold the Second Annual Washington Fila
Weekend at 3104 Stanton Rd., Yakima, WA, 98903 which is a
small farm. For directions to the farm, please go to www.mapquest.com and
simply type in the aforementioned address. Not only will we will
many events set up on location but we have plenty of room for campers
and an area that is totally fenced. There will also be an
enclosed and fenced area for people (one family at a time) to take
their dogs to let them loose, play and blow off a little bit of steam.
This is basically a Cattle pen, which will also be doubling as our
agility course. For more information on the schedule, please click on
the agenda link at the top of the page. We will update this page
