Why accreditation is important:
Accredited events allow our sports to continue to grow in a safe and positive manner that promotes the development of our human and canine athletes and improves the quality and safety of the events those athletes are able to participate in.
What can CAHDS do for you?
CAHDS can assist by directing you to the regional association in your area or may be able to provide direct accreditation where other options do not exist. Regional associations are able to provide sanctioning, assist with obtaining the proper insurance (it's important to note most race insurance is voided where the participation of dogs is allowed unless specifically outlined in the policy), and typically list accredited events online ensuring their members are aware of upcoming racing opportunities.
