Critter Science

Misunderstood doesn't mean bad. Exotic animals are as amazing as they can be mysterious. Come see a few of what mother nature has to offer and learn a little too.

1:00 PM: Pet/Guardian Musical Chair Competition

Musical Chairs is a doggy variation of the classic children’s game. Music plays as handlers walk with their dog’s off-leash counter-clockwise around a rectangular area. A line of chairs (with alternating chairs facing in opposite direction) runs down the center of the rectangle. When the music stops, the handlers instruct their dogs to sit by verbal request and hand signal only (i.e., without touching them) and rush to sit on a vacant chair in the center of the rectangle. Last dog (and owner) sitting wins!

1:30 PM: Disaster and Emergency Preparedness for You and Your Pet/s

Indy’s Run for Rescue LURE COURSE

Proceeds benefit Brittany Rescue AZ

Saturday, May 26th, 2018

All day, 10:00AM to 5:00PM

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

All day, 11:00AM to 4:00PM

Racing across a grassy course with the wind in their face, free as a bird, and a “lure” just within reach? It doesn’t get much better than that, folks! Lure coursing is a sport for dogs (and even the occasional kitty!) which involves chasing an exciting mechanical “lure” that jerks, jumps, wiggles, and turns on a dime, much like those elusive squirrels and rabbits that somehow (luckily) always manage to get away. So any pet who enjoys an exciting game of “Chase,” regardless of age, ability, handicap, size, or skill, is welcome to give the Lure Course a try! The sport of lure coursing is rapidly increasing in popularity, and once you’ve taken a gander at this game in action, you’ll see exactly why. This is a very popular feature, so those whose pooch (or courageous cat) would love a chance to give it a go, should make their way right over to the course and sign up - All runs only $10, proceeds will benefit Brittany Rescue AZ.

ACTIVITY COURSE

Provided by Phoenix Area Disc Dogs and Jumping Chollas

Agility Club

www.jumpingchollas.com

Phoenix Area Disc Dogs: You’ve seen them on TV and at the park: an excited dog races out, makes a spectacular leap and catches a flying disc mid-air; then he runs right back to the disc thrower for another round of the action-packed game. That’s Disc Dog. Are you ready to see some incredible dogs show us all they’ve got?! After the demo, stick around and find out how you and your pooch can also get involved in the popular sport of Disc Dog - anyone (and any dog) can play!

Jumping Chollas Agility Club: Students from Jumping Chollas from beginners class to advanced class will be showing off their skills on a small agility course. Agility is, at its core, a dance with dog and handler where you and your dog move at a run while the dog performs obstacles and the handler guides the dog using various handling skills. You will get to see how the dogs are taught some of the obstacle and handling skills. They will also have some advanced dogs who will show you what this sport looks like in its more advanced classes. Then they will give some of the spectators a chance to try their dogs on some of the obstacles under the supervision of our students.
