Eastern Maine Agility Club (EMAC) is dedicated to promoting the sport of Canine Agility in Maine. EMAC hosts five Agility trials each year. Two of these trials are at the Skowhegan Fairgrounds (in May and July), two are at Hadley Point Campground in Bar Harbor (September and October) and for 2022 a new June venue at the Union Fairgrounds. EMAC welcomes all competitors, but many of our members are from central/eastern Maine. All EMAC Agility trials are sanctioned by Canine Performance Events, Inc. (CPE). EMAC’s mission is to help members and others on their dog Agility journey by providing opportunities to bond with their dog(s) and each other through trials with a positive and fun environment, training, and related social events.
COVID UPDATE – EMAC takes the risk of COVID-19 very seriously and we comply with all recommendations from the Maine CDC, the Governor’s office, and Canine Performance Events. We continue to make additional, smaller changes to keep our members safe. We are happy to report that the trials we hosted in the past two years were successful and safe. EMAC plans to continue hosting Agility trials in 2022 and again will follow all recommended guidelines for doing so.
Agility is an equal opportunity dog sport. We welcome all dog handlers – junior, senior, and everyone in between from novice/first-timers to experienced competitors. We welcome all breeds of dogs who are ready, willing, and able to play! We only support positive reinforcement. Remember, your dog does the best job that it can with YOU as its handler.
