WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

Well, we did of course. One of last year’s favorite events to watch, this year’s Strong-water and Flat-water Dog Fetch events will bring together dogs of all shapes and sizes.

STRONG-WATER FETCH

This event will be within the play park at Kelly’s where the current is VERY strong.

All dogs are required to wear a PFD – if your dog doesn’t have a lifejacket you can borrow one from the PRGs team.

The dogs and their owners will compete on Sunday June 21 before the large crowds expected at the PRG’s. Registration will be limited to the first 30 dogs.

Local residents Lucy & John Schott will once again run the dog fetch event.

FLAT-WATER FETCH

Last year this fun event was enjoyed by all dogs, their owners and all of the spectators. We will once again hold this event in the flat-water section of the Payette River on the north end of town.

As long as your doggie can paddle and fetch you will love this fun filled event. We will put your dogs to the challenge of who will be crowned “fastest dog” in their weight class. We will have 2 weight classes (>65 pounds & <65 pounds).

Competitors and their handlers will start at the “Throwing Pad”. Handlers will then throw their dog’s favorite fetch toy in the Payette River. Don’t worry, a minimum distance will be established. The fastest dog to fetch their toy, and return it to their handler at the throwing pad, will be declared the winner. It is recommended that your dog wear a PFD.
