South

Independent Ringers South is continuing with the original premise of the club, a small club of 5-6 people who are pursuing high level competition. However, the sport of choice focus has changed, and we are now a multi-sport club with people preparing dogs for French Ring, Mondio Ring, PSA and NADF. IRS will continue to host trials, seminars and open training days. Guests are welcome. For more information about IRS contact Kadi Thingvall.

History

Independent Ringers was a small Ring club that originated in Southern California, the founding members were Kadi Thingvall and John Garcia. Our goal was to remain a small club, with a maximum of 5-6 members, who's focus was preparing dogs for high level competition in French and/or Mondio Ring. We planned to host 2-4 events a year, a mix of French Ring trials, Mondioring trials, training days, and seminars. In our first year as a club IR successfully hosted multiple training days and a French Ring trial. Independent Ringers has now split into Independent Ringers South (Riverside and Escondido areas) and Independent Ringers North (Grass Valley).
