Interactive Events & Exhibitions
USDAA® is pleased to offer a variety of activities for you to experience first-hand with your well-behaved dog. All dogs are welcome at the Cynosport® World Games, but must be wearing a buckle-type collar and on a leash no more than 6 feet in length. (Please, no retractable leashes or prong collars.)
We pride ourselves on promoting responsible pet ownership at all times – so be sure to bring plenty of water for your dog and please pick up after them.
Besides watching the world’s best agility competitors, you and your dogs are welcome to try these other activities:
Dog Agility 101
Test your agility skills and your dog’s temperament on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You and your dog will be guided through some basic agility obstacles under the supervision of expert trainers. Cost is $5 per run-through and proceeds will benefit Aussie and Friends rescue. All proceeds go directly to this terrific 501(c)3 charity.
Dock Jumping – Splash Dogs
Most dogs love water, especially if they can jump or launch into it! In Dock Jumping competitions, dogs run the end of a pier and launch as far as they can into the water. You and your dog are welcome to give it a try Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 10th – 13th. There is a $25 fee associated to participate in this activity. Please visit www.splashdogs.com for more information.
Lure coursing is almost as much fun to watch as it is to play! Let your dog run all-out in an enclosed area chasing a “rabbit-like” lure. Dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes will enjoy running their hearts out chasing this pretend “rabbit”.
World Cynosport Rally Demonstrations
Get ready to Rally! Rally is a fun, exciting team sport and open to all dogs whether they’re purebred or a mixed breed. Rally is a fun test of obedience skills and builds trust between you and your dog. You and your dog can come watch a demonstration or try it out for yourself (a Rally Run-thru) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 11th through 13th. There’s a $5 fee to try it yourself with expert instructors to guide you.
Vendor Trade Fair & Exposition
It’s a dog-lovers shopping extravaganza! Check out dozens of vendors and exhibits to find what’s available in the dog world, your favorite craft, or what services may be available to you and your family pet. Start your holiday season shopping early!
We’re working on adding more interactive events and demonstrations this year. Please check back later for more details.
