2017 Smart Dog Sponsorships

Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors—we are officially sold out for 2017!
If you missed sponsoring a dog and handler, please still stop by the PIE booth to say hello and support PIE by buying raffle tickets for our homemade pies. See you at the trials!

$100 per dog and handler, includes:

  • Two four-day passes to the 2017 Vashon Sheepdog Classic
  • Meet your dog and handler, have your photo taken with them
  • Your name in running list (by print deadline) and day-of posters, next to sponsored dog
  • Your name announced each time sponsored dog runs
  • Your name entered into the Smart Dog Sponsor-only Raffle for great randomly drawn prizes, including a 3 night stay in a condo at Whistler!
  • 5 tickets for the ever popular PIE Homemade Pie Raffle
  • Feel like an insider and cheer louder than everyone else when your dog runs!

More Details

About a week before: You will receive an email with the approximate run times of your dog and handler, as well as other event details. We do our best to arrange the meet and greets, but we have found the best time is about 15 minutes after your dog and handler have run.

Day of: You will not receive tickets in advance. Simply check in at the event gate — your name will be on a PIE Smart Dog Sponsor list for free entry. Then head to the PIE booth for your raffle tickets and information about meeting your dog and handler. Please note: The PIE booth will be open from 10 am – 4 pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

The fair market value of this sponsorship is $55 (tax-deductible amount is $45). The entire $100 sponsorship fee goes directly to PIE, and we want to give a huge shout out to Vashon Sheepdog Classic for donating the event passes again this year. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jenna Riggs

How to Sponsor a Dog & Handler

Dogs are listed alphabetically by Handler’s first name, in three groups: A-H, I-L and M-Z. “Select options” below each group will take you to another page where a drop down menu shows available dogs/handlers. Pick your dog and handler, and click on “Add to cart.” You can continue to check out by clicking “View Cart”, or add more dogs by clicking the back button in your browser. When checking out, be sure to complete the entire form so we can make the correct announcements.
Please note, there may be a few dogs who are only running one day, instead of two—they are noted by an asterisk before their name. All of the same benefits apply to these dogs and handlers. And, have your heart set on a certain dog and handler, but they have already been sponsored? Please contact Jenna Riggs for information on being a “Spirit Sponsor.”
