Sponsor a Dog and Handler Team
The 2011 National Sheepdog Finals will sell 150 Open Dog Sponsorships and 75 Nursery Dog Sponsorships at $125 each. By purchasing a sponsorship, you will have your own “team” of a handler and dog to cheer for at the trials. The purpose of this program is to provide a sponsorship opportunity to individuals and businesses at an affordable level, while raising funds to offset trial costs. Sponsorships will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
Dog Sponsorships are deductible as an ordinary (advertising) business expense but not as a charitable deduction. Sponsors will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
Dog Sponsors may request a specific dog and handler team and we will do our best to accommodate requests. However, we can NOT guarantee placement. Dog-Handler Team assignments will be posted on here as they come in. We rooutinely update the list of entered teams that still need a sponsor. We will continue to sell sponsorships until every team has a sponsor.
We currently have sold 134 Teams. We still have 96 Teams available for sponsorship.
