The Cynosport Dog Agility World Games is a championship event where competitors qualify during the year to attend. The world’s best canine athletes will be unleashed individually to race over obstacle courses against the clock while being navigated by their human partner, using only voice and hand signals. Easy for spectators to understand, the objective is to score the fastest time with the least penalties. Dogs of all breeds and sizes compete in various classes where obstacles are set based on the height and experience of the dog.
NEW THIS YEAR: In partnership with Antinol®, the Official Joint Supplement of the USDAA, the Cynosport World Games will also feature new Veterinarian Appreciation Days on Saturday and Sunday, December 3-4. Veterinarians, veterinary technicians and vet students help make up the backbone of the sport, working tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of their canine partners, and several Arizona-based professionals will be competing with their dogs for the coveted championship titles.
