Musical Hoops: This is musical chairs for dogs! While the music plays, handlers heel their dogs around a row of hula hoops. When the music stops, handlers tell their dogs to "sit" or "down"in a hula hoop, any dog without a hoop is excused.

Peanut Butter Lick: Who can empty the spoon of peanut butter the fastest? First 3 win

Frisbee Throw: The dog with the furthest catch wins (furthest distance thrown and caught).

Filla Fuller Brush Shedding: Handlers will have one minute to brush their dog. One handler holds plastic bags while the other brushes and passes hair.  Handler supplies their own grooming tool.  NO Furminators. Whoever has the most hair in 60 seconds wins. Top 3 win

Tennis Ball Toss: Whoever can fetch the bucket of balls the fastest or has the most in 90 seconds.

Meatball Eating Contest: Who can eat the most turkey meatballs in 30 seconds.

Red Light Green Light:  In this game, one person plays the "stop light" and the rest try to touch him/her.  At the start, all the dog and handlers form a line about 35 feet away from the stop light.  The stop light says green light and at this point the dogs and handlers are allowed to move towards the stop light. At any point the stop light may say "red light" and turn around.  If any of the dogs and handlers are caught moving they are out.  Play resumes.  First 3 to reach the red light win.

Lure Course:
Dogs are timed chasing a mechanically operated lure. Top 3 times win

Babe Ruth Obedience Baseball:
Dogs complete a command at each base to score.  To start dog and handler stand at home plate.  Judge says "go" and dog and handler move to 1st base.  Handler commands dog to sit. When dog sits, dog and handler move to 2nd base.  At 2nd the dog is commanded to lay. Once the dog lays they move to 3rd base. Handler commands dog to sit/stay  When dog obeys, handler walks to home plate with their back to the dog.  When handler reaches home plate they release dog.  When dog crosses home plate the time stops. 3 best times win.

Agility Course: Handler directs the dog through the obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. 

We will present a prize for the over all Best Olympian for the dog that won the most for the day.
