The History of SMART
SMART was founded in 2001 to promote agility in the Central Coast
of California. Our members are from Salinas, Monterey, Santa Cruz,
Gilroy, Morgan Hill, the Bay Area, the South Bay and many other
exotic locales. SMART puts on 4 USDAA trials every year, and a
fun match. We have also sponsored various seminars and clinics with guest
instructors like Susan Garrett, Steve Frick and Susan Salo. We welcome
agility fans of all levels who would like to help us support the sport in our area.
2019 SMART Service and Sportsmanship Award
A committee of SMART members and other canine advocates will make this award annually to an individual or group who has contributed in a signal way to our club, to the sport of dog agility, or to the welfare and training of canines in the Salinas-Monterey area, with particular emphasis on honoring a spirit of selfless volunteerism.
Congratulations to the 2018 Award winner, Phil Jost.
