Dog agility is a beloved sport by dogs, their handlers, and spectators. Now you have an opportunity to watch American Kennel Club agility trials, free of charge, from about 8 AM to about 3 PM each day on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, May 24, through 27. Sponsored by the Blue Ridge Agility Club, the event will be held at the WNC Agricultural Center McGough Arena in Fletcher (across from the Asheville Regional Airport).
Hundreds of purebred dogs from throughout the southeast compete at various levels of difficulty against each other and the clock. Watch as dogs and their handlers navigate obstacle courses, everything from platforms to weave poles to tunnels. It's an experience you won't want to miss (but please leave your own dog at home).
