Paws for the People

A day of obedience, agility, and fun for dogs and their people!  No experience necessary & novices welcomed!

Dogs and owners of all breeds, ages, ability, and experience are welcome and encouraged to participate! The event will be comprised of three show rings running concurrently: The Center Ring; Obedience; and Agility. Each entrant will receive a gift card and a treat bag.

The Center Ring: dogs can compete in five light-hearted and fun competitions. Winners, decided by audience response, from each group will automatically be eligible to win Best in Show.

  • Best Trick - Let Fido show of his or her best trick, we know you both have been working hard!
  • Dog/Owner Look-Alike - Do you and your pooch share an uncanny resemblance?
  • Best Dog Couple - It's the date of the royal wedding but fabulous couples shouldn't be limited to Harry and Meghan!
  • Most Unique Dog - We know all dogs are beautiful and special, but does yours stand out from the crowd?
  • Dog + Owner = BFF - Is your dog beautifully well turned out? Do they handle themselves particularly? Impress us!

Obedience: Handlers will compete in a Beginner Novice AKC format competition. Winner will receive the Golden Bone Award and a chance to compete in Best in Show.

Agility: Handlers will guide dogs through an obstacle course complete with jumps, a tunnel, weave poles and more in a race for both time and accuracy. Winner will receive the Golden Bone Award and a chance to compete in Best in Show.
