The Juniors Class is for handlers 11 and younger.

Jumpers Class: On leash, dogs will compete in an obstacle course that includes tunnels, cones with distractions such as balls, toys, and treats, and broad/high jumps. The handler can either go over or around the jump while the dog jumps. This will be a timed event with classes divided based on dog height which will determine jump height.

The Lead Line Class – Costume Parade: Dress your dog like your favorite part of Devon – a Pony, the Ferris wheel, or a French Fry.

Handlers of all ages welcome – Ribbons for all entrants.

Fun for the whole family!
