A sport for every dog…

I’m a little late in posting these pictures, but I hope you’ll think it was worth the wait!  These are from the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Regional Finals in San Diego last month.  This premier canine sporting event features dogs competing in a variety of events including dog surfing, dog diving, freestyle flying disc, head-to-head weave poles, Jack Russell hurdle racing and agility. Above, Nani, a Bernese Mountain Dog, bails off her board during the surfing competition (Purina/ Gus Ruelas)

Saturday Survey: Will Cooper Get Wet This Year?

If you’ve been a reader for awhile, you know we’ve been trying to convince our Vizsla Cooper that he is indeed a retriever and should not be scared of the water.  He begs to differ.

Well, our Dock Dogs season opens this weekend with the Clay’s Park Me & My Pet Event, so I’m wondering, will this be the year Cooper finally gets into the pool?

Purina Incredible Dog Challenge in Atlanta

The Purina Incredible Dog Challenge was at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park on April 2nd.  All breeds of dogs were welcome, participating in dog diving, agility, weave-pole races, Jack Russell racing, and freestyle Frisbee events.  They even fielded a baseball team.   The videos from these Eastern Regional Finals are available on BarkNet.  There was no way for me to embed them here -sorry!  You’ll have to make due here with the still photos they sent along.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

Working Dogs Weekend @ Lake Metroparks

Had I realized what a big deal this was, I would have posted about it earlier so you could make plans to go.  We volunteered to take our dogs to a Dock Dogs demonstration event today (for people who want to see what it looks like when a dog WON’T jump).  I just went into the park’s web site to find directions, and they have a HUGE event planned.  Check out the working dog events they have planned.

If you’re going to be near Cleveland today, stop by and see us.  I’ll try to take lots of pictures and post them in the coming week.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
