Vita Bone Good Stuff Truck

LIFE IS BETTER IN BALANCE.™ Vita Bone Biscuits are where delicious taste and healthy ingredients come together. It’s the overlap — that sweet spot in the middle that keeps you and your dog happy.  This year they’re bringing something new: their totally cool Good Stuff Pet Truck!  They’ll have all sorts of samples and prizes for you and your best friend! 

Remember that your favorite pooch needs to stay home unless it’s a service dog or is competing in Splash Dogs.  Tens of thousands of people come to the Classic and thousands of dogs in that area just wouldn’t work (just an errant bark can ruin a sheepdog run). So leave fido home but come and celebrate all things canine with Vita Bone!  Find out more about Vita Bone at: Vitabone.com

Wicked Fast Agility Dogs

Everyone loves the “faster than a speeding bullet,” agility dogs.  Dogs run through an obstacle course off leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles.  Consequently the handler’s controls are limited to voice, movement, and various body signals, requiring exceptional training of the animal and coordination of the handler.  Each day Kristin Sittner will lead three demonstrations showing the various elements of competition, while answering questions about all elements of this exciting competition.  Last year this event was a real crowd pleaser and we look forward to having agility as a part of the Classic for many years to come.
