Formal Events Schedule
In a typical year, the Eastern Slopes Spaniel Association hosts Sporting Spaniel field trials and hunt tests which are open to all spaniel breeds with the exception of Brittany Spaniels and Irish Water Spaniels. Competitions are typically held in the late spring and early fall and competitors come to Southern Alberta from the United States and across Canada to see if their dog has what it takes to compete and excel and win.
