PIE Smart Dog Sponsors
For more than 10 years, PIE has been delighted to run the PIE Smart Dog Sponsor program at the Vashon Sheepdog Classic. We love bringing together fans and handler teams every year, all while raising money for fall PIE grants!
No Vashon Sheepdog Classic in 2022
Due to on-going uncertainty with the Misty Isle Farms field location and its possible sale, the Vashon Sheepdog Classic has declared that 2022 will be a “skip year.” While we are saddened about this latest turn of events, we are hopeful that a solution will be found and that the trials will be able to continue after this year. We will miss this amazing event and miss seeing all of our amazing “PIE Smart Dog Sponsors.”
Please contact Jenna Riggs with any questions about our sponsorship program going forward.

These new materials provide a rich blend of voices from around the world sharing their own feelings and experiences through their writing. Our students may not be able to travel to all of these countries, but they can be exposed to the cultural similarities and differences through literature.
