Highlights

Saturday & Sunday

10am-4pm    Dock Diving hosted by Dockdogs

Dock Diving is a dog sport in which dogs compete in jumping for distance or height from a dock into a body of water.  A team consists of one dog, of any type or size, and usually one handler but sometimes two handlers.  Dogs must be over six months of age to compete.  Handlers may use a toy, also known as the chase object.  The dogs are not required to chase or retrieve the toy.  If you are interested in having your dog try it, check the Dockdogs table for information.

10am-4pm    US Disc Dog Nationals
Hosted by Houston Canine Frisbee Disc Club

Saturday, March 29 will be a very popular and exciting event called “The Quadruped.”   It is a long distance competition, featuring two divisions (Men and Women).  There will be Frisbees flying almost 100 yards in the Men’s Open division and over 70 yards in the Women’s Open division.   Sunday, March 30 will be The Ashley Whippet Invitational.

10am-4pm    Flyball Demonstrations by Do Run Run Flyball team

Flyball is a dog sport in which teams of dogs race against each other from a start/finish line, over a line of hurdles, to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring-loaded pad, and then back to their handlers while carrying the ball.
