Over Achiever Award:

The Over Achiever is a fun competition that recognizes the Cairn sampling the most events during CTCA’s 100-Year Celebration at Purina Farms. Participation in any CTCA-sponsored event earns a point, including all performance and conformation competitions, the Happy Yappy demonstrations and games, and the Top 20 conformation and performance evening. Cairns do not have to qualify – they just have to try.

Hexathlon Award

The Hexathlon Award rewards high achieving and versatile performance teams. Cairns earn points on a sliding scale for qualifying in titling performance events, with the most points awarded for qualifying efforts at the masters level. We have prizes for the top Cairn in the hexathlon, the highest scoring Cairn over ten years old, and the highest scoring junior handler.

Fast Cat

We expect it to sell out fast, so fill out your entries. Fast CAT is a straight 100-yard dash in a fully fenced area. It is a pure instinct test - no prior experience or training is necessary. We will work with you to accommodate conflicts with Barn Hunt and conformation.

2 trials each day on Friday May 5 & Saturday May, 6.

Earth Dog

ED is our breed's major instinct test. It is a non competitive event that measures the natural hunting and working behaviors of small terriers and Dachshunds. If you have never tried it, enter the Intro class and see your Cairn enjoy exercising its native instincts.

Cairn Terriers Only: Thursday, May 4. All Eligible Earthdog Breeds: Wednesday, May 3
