Dogs Put Their Best Paw Forward
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. This weekend dogs put their best paw forward, for the annual AKC Dog Agility Trial.
This year's event drew in over 200 dogs. Dog and handlers go throughout the course, racing against the clock.
From tiny Yorkshire Terriers to giant Irish Wolfhounds, the dogs run the same course with adjustments in expected time and jump height.
John Williams, with the Western Colorado Agility Club (WCAC), said, "If you like your dog and you play with your dog, this is an excellent sport to come do. You just go out there and run around with your dog. And it's all about communicating."
According to Williams, dog agility is the fastest growing dog sport in the United States.
The event was free to the public and held at the Mesa County Fairgrounds
