French Ring Sport

Capital City Dog Sport Association has a unique and interesting involvement with French Ring Sport in this country beginning back in the 1980s. Our CCDSA President and training director Cheryl Carlson was one of the founders of the North American Ring Association (NARA) and also served as President of the organization for a number of years.

 

Cheryl has titled 4 dogs to Ring III (1 German Shepherd & 3 Belgian Malinois) and her training students have earned over 150 French Ring titles.

We have one mom & pop type motel in St. Johns (click here) which is closest to our location (10.4 miles away), but most would be more comfortable at one of the numerous pet friendly national hotel chains located within 15-20 miles.  (We have no traffic here so driving 15-20 miles is relatively quick!)
