Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Heads to Austin

If this week’s Westminster Dog Show (and the Best of Show winner, Uno, from Austin) has you ready to show off your own dog, here’s your chance. On Saturday, March 8, the Western regional portion of the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge will be held at the Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo.

The Event: Dogs from the Midwest will have the opportunity at this event to compete in a variety of “Olympic style” events. The winners ultimately earn the right to compete against top dogs from around the country at the National Championships this fall in St. Louis.

The Purina Incredible Dog Challenge includes agility, flying disc, Jack Russell hurdle races, head-to-head 60-weave pole and dog diving events. The challenge will stage an open qualifier on Friday, March 7 in the afternoon, (registration begins at 10:30 a.m.) where local dogs are invited to compete for a spot in Saturday’s regional competition in dog diving and flying disc, which are two of the main events in the competition.
