Welcome to the 2020 National Open!

Welcome to the 80th Annual National Open Championship
November 7-14, 2020

The dogs and handlers competing in this event are the very best in the world of performance retrievers! The best of the best. Congrats to all those qualified for this National event!

This year's National Open will take place in Giddings, Texas. Noted for being full of history and heritage, it offers a taste of rural Texas, with all of the amenities you might expect from a quaint old town. The beautiful landscape and country charms of the Giddings area are sure to make you feel welcome!  Located only about 55 miles east of Austin and McKinney Falls State Park in the heart of Texas, Giddings is actually about halfway in between both Austin and Houston. The average temperatures in November are in the 70's during the day and down into the 50's at night, which should be perfect for our event! As the Giddings, Texas motto says "Experience Hometown Hospitality." We hope you will join us!

We look forward to seeing you all there!
