NOSA is also a competition club, and stages several obedience trials a year.


    NOSA is a member of the Association of Island Obedience Clubs (AIOC) — an alliance of 10 dog obedience clubs on Vancouver Island, from Victoria to Campbell River.

    NOSA offers two AIOC trials annually, hosted in conjunction with the Greater Victoria Dog Obedience Training Club. For the past few years, Rally Obedience trials have been offered at this same event. These AIOC trials give competitors the opportunity to earn two passes in a single day in Obedience and in Rally-Obedience. Our next AIOC club trial date is:

    • March 18 at RCMP Barn, Saanich Fairgrounds: Mary Bates Memorial Trial 2 Obedience trials, 2 Rally trials.  Judges are Carol Toms, Terry Gains and David Denis.
    •  A CKC Rally Sanction Match to follow the Club Obedience Trial – Judge: Margaret Henigman

    A schedule of all AIOC events is posted on the AIOC website.

    Of particular interest is the annual AIOC Challenge Cup event, held each year in Nanaimo.

    CKC Trial

    NOSA is one of only three clubs in B.C.’s Capital Regional District sanctioned by the Canadian Kennel Club to host approved obedience trials. Over the years, NOSA members have placed in the Dogs in Canada national obedience top-5 breed rankings.

    Our CKC trials are open to both purebred and mixed breed dogs.

    Thank you to all of our volunteers and competitors who made the 2016 trial a success!

    NOSA’s 2017 CKC trial will be held on April 15th–16th, at the RCMP Barn – Saanich Fairgrounds.  The judges for these trials are Shirley Hubenig and Michel A Calhoun.
