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), and three are at Hadley Point Campground in Bar Harbor (June, September, and October). 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. In 2020, we cancelled our May trial. We modified our July, September, and October trials (all outdoor events) to comply with all recommendations from the Maine CDC, the Governor’s office, and Canine Performance Events. Those measures included mandatory face coverings in/around the ring, social-distancing throughout the event, and a limit on the number of participants. We made numerous additional, smaller changes to keep our members safe. We are happy to report that the trials we hosted last year were successful and safe. EMAC plans to continue hosting Agility trials in 2021 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.
Your Agility Adventure starts here!
