We are thrilled to welcome back for the second year the North American Diving Dogs with the area's first qualifier event for the National Diving Dog Championships!

If you have always been interested in introducing your water-loving dog to dock diving you can pre-register online or buy a practice pass on-site for multiple test jumps.

 

The NADD event does have participation fees starting at just $10 for two "try-its". To pre-register, or to learn more about NADD's AKC Trial please visit their event page. Online registration will open on 5/14. Day of show entries may be available until participation limits are reached.

The NADD qualifier is being held Friday, Saturday and Sunday — lots of opportunity to watch and participate! This competition will feature distance jumps and air retrieve categories. Be sure to catch all the action!

 ALL WEEKEND

It is an honor that we are once again partnering with UpDog Challenge. UpDog shares our passion in expanding the awareness and participation of people and dogs in athletic endeavors. Both UpDog and BAM want more people and more dogs having fun, playing together.

Their disc dog games are more than just a frisbee catch, and offer an opportunity for every dog and human to work toward their own personal bests.

 SATURDAY

 THE MAIN EVENT 

The main Community Center front lawn, tree line and adjacent street will once again be host to a range of different activities for all ages and all handler experience levels, adoptable dogs from the regions' rescues and shelters, and the main BAM tents. All the featured activities on the lawn remain the heart of Dog Day each year and we look forward to having you and your dog try out some new sports, or learn about something you've never seen before!

 FUNGILITY ARENA

Watch FUNgility demos from experienced handlers and their dogs, then try your own turn in the arena. Trial runs are open to any age and every experience level throughout the day! Agility courses are a fantastic way to bond with your dog and improve or reinforce their confidence.
 

Plan to join in the FUN!

 DOG SPORTS ARENA

Visit the Dog Sport Arena throughout the day Saturday for a wide variety of activities. Disc dog demos, rally obedience demos, freestyle demos, nosework, intro to conformation, etc. will be presented by members of Southern Utah Dog Sports (SUDS), Red Canyon Kennel Club, Zion Disc Dogs and more.

And youth handlers (of any experience level) will want to participate in the event this year! More detailed info to come.
