Just for trying, the dogs involved will receive a free bandana. They can be breeds or of mixed parentage.

The course is one similar to the one run by trained champion agility dogs. It is only open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday July 19 and Sunday July 20. Theres no prior registration and the dogs must be at least 6 months old, have proof of a rabies vaccination on hand and must remain on a leash when they aren't running a course.
