Interactive Events & Exhibitions

We are pleased to offer a variety of activities for the public to engage in with their well-behaved dogs. All dogs coming to the show must be on a buckle type of collar and on a leash not exceeding 6' in length. (No flexi-leads please.) It is important to be a responsible pet owner at all times – be sure to bring water for your dog and to pick up after them.

Doggie-Do-Right and Dog AgilityTest

The public is invited to test their agility skills from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and 10am to 3pm on Sunday. With each pet's owner in control, they will be guided under the one-on-one supervision of expert trainers. The owner and trainer will introduce the dog to agility obstacles to test each dog's temperament for dog agility. The fee for this activity is $5 and goes to "A Pinsch of Heaven Doberman Rescue", host of this activity.

Dock Jumping - Splash Dogs

Jumping from the pier into water has been a common pastime among lake-dwellers. In sport form, it is not much different - get the dog to run the pier and launch from the end, jumping as far as they can into the water. Sound difficult? Come out and give it a try on the practice pier and then test your dog's ability on the official pier. The competitor's dog with the longest jump is the winner. A fee is charged for participation in this activity.

Course-a-Lure – "Lure-For-the-Cure" presented by the National Canine Cancer Foundation (NCCF)

The public can also enter their dogs in this exciting sport. The dog runs on an enclosed course consisting of a few hoops, chutes, jumps, tunnels and turns while chasing a rabbit-like lure. Dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes get to run their hearts out chasing after what appears to them to be a rabbit. The thrilling experience of this course will be the most exciting thing your dog will ever do, and you'll love it, too! Come join in on the hoopin' and hollerin'. Event will be held outdoors. Sign up at the event between 9am and 5pm Wednesday through Sunday.

Fees: $8 for one run; $12 for two runs and $18 for three runs.

The National Canine Cancer Foundation, a nationwide, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, is dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health issue in dogs by funding grants directly to cancer researchers. Look for their booth at the Trade Fair where they will be selling NCCF signature 'pink paw' merchandise.
