Begin planning your trip to attend the 2012-2013 IWPA International Championships!
Plan early because if you live in the United States you will need to have time to obtain some form of U.S. Citizenship either by Passport, Nexus Card or Enhanced Driver's License available in some bordering states.
You should also plan to have health and vaccination records for any dogs you will take.
See you in Canada eh!!!
