Do you have a dog that is always eager to learn, curious about the world around them and is a ball of energy? Do you enjoy watching dog competitions on television and wish that your dog could compete on the big screen? Are you simply looking for fun activities and sports that your dog can do? If so, you are in luck. The following is a list of structured and fun activities that you and your pup can enjoy.
There is an ever increasing number of events that you can enter your dog in. You can participate with your dog in sporting events that are highly competitive, or you can enter your doggy in temperament tests that are not competitive in nature.
Do not think that you need to have a dog of a certain breed in order to let your pet participate in these sporting events. Even though AKC sporting events are typically only open to dogs who are purebred and registered, there are plenty of options for dog owners with mixed breed and/or unregistered dogs.
AKC dog sporting events are known for being extremely organized, and you can visit their website to learn about all of the sporting events that are available for registered, purebred dogs.
However, keep in mind that new sporting events are being introduced on a regular basis. In fact, there was a new sport introduced a little over 10 years ago. If you do not want to enter your pooch into an official sporting event, there are still several fun sporting activities that you and your dog can enjoy.
