FERNDALE- About 200 dogs and their owners enjoyed some sunshine for the last day of the Lost Coast Kennel Club All Breed Agility Trials in Ferndale.
Dogs have been competing in a variety of different agility courses since the trials began on Saturday. Participants from throughout the West Coast brought their pooches to the event. Winners in each of the four categories earn credits to go towards an American Kennel Club Title Certificate. Organizers say the trials are fun for owners and dogs alike, win or lose.
"I think it's just about the most fun you can have with your dog. You're coming out here rain or shine, playing with your dog, running obstacle courses that are unique to you and the dog every time. And it's all about the communication between you and your dog on how you're going to get your dog to negotiate that unique course this time without making any mistakes and do it as fast as you can," said Beverly Morgan Lewis, the President and Agility Trial Chair for the Lost Coast Kennel Club.
The Lost Coast Kennel Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting dog sports along the North Coast.
