Warm Weather Fun!

Howdy, friends!

 

It looks like the Multnomah County Fair has gone to the dogs this year! Just in time for this beautiful weather, the fair will be hosting a Dog Expo over Memorial Day weekend at Oaks Amusement Park. Dogs and their owners are welcome to meet each other in the park and sample many pet-friendly vendors that can only be found in Portland.

One of the highlights of the fair will be FlyBall. This fast-paced Fido sport is taking the country by storm and is so exciting to watch! Flyball combines both speed and agility in a relay format. According to the North American Flyball Association, at www.flyball.org, Flyball races match two teams of four dogs each, racing side-by-side over a 51 foot long course. Each dog must run in relay fashion down the jumps, trigger a flyball box, releasing the ball, retrieve the ball, and return over the jumps. The next dog is released to run the course but can’t cross the start/finish line until the previous dog has returned over all 4 jumps and reached the start/finish line. The first team to have all 4 dogs finish the course without error wins the heat.

FlyBall demos will be taking place all weekend; it’s a can’t miss event! There will also be agility trials and dock diving.

This is a great time to bring your pup out for some quality excercise and socialization. For more information, check out FidosCityGuide.com. You can also pick up a schedule of weekend events at the City Guide booth.

 

See you there!
