K9 Celebration

Join us as we all take the weekend to celebrate man’s best friend! In addition to seeing the “world’s foremost sheepdog championship”, you’ll also also see wet’n wild splash dogs, faster than a speeding bullet agility dogs, rescue dogs, and experience the best food and some awesome craft shows you’ll find anywhere.
Just a reminder:  Spectator dogs are not allowed.  Service and seeing eye dogs welcomed.

 

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.
