Additional meeting dates for 2021 to be updated
After careful consideration and in response to COVID-19, the Puget Sound English Springer Spaniel Association (PSESSA) Board of Directors and our Specialty Show Chairperson made the difficult decision to cancel our specialty show that was to be held on Friday August 14, 2020 in Enumclaw, WA. This cancellation includes the two supported entries following our specialty at the all-breed shows (the sporting group club already cancelled the option to offer supported entries at their two group shows preceding our specialty).
We have notified our judges and they have all agreed to accept the same assignments for our specialty show on Friday August 20, 2021. As a FYI, here is the judging panel (pending AKC confirmation):
• Conformation: Carol Hathaway
• Sweepstakes: Laura Reeves (please note that we will come up with classes for puppies who were eligible for Sweepstakes in 2020 to be eligible for classes in 2021 - more details to come!)
• Junior Showmanship: Demery Paladichuk
• 4 - 6 mo puppy: Janet Warner
• PeeWees: Katie Effert
We thank our club members, judges, exhibitors and supporters for their understanding during this unprecedented time we have all found ourselves in. We look forward to seeing everyone again in August 2021!
One-time conformation specialty show in conjunction with the Mt. Baker Kennel Club on May 22, 2021
To make up for having to cancel our 2020 specialty show, PSESSA will be holding a one-time specialty show in conjunction with the Mt. Baker Kennel Club in Lynden, WA on Saturday May 22, 2021. The breed judge will Jill Warren and the Puppy and Veteran Sweepstakes judge will be Laura Myles (Inverness GWPs). The superintendent is Baray. and is pending AKC confirmation. We hope to see you there!
The PSESSA annually participates in the four Labor Day hunt clusters, hosting a day of tests including Junior, Senior and Master Hunter levels.
These tests are held at Scatter Creek in Rochester, Washington.
