A new addition to this year’s event is a Dog Showcase – backed by The South African Dog Agility Association (SADAA). Dog Agility is one of the fastest growing canine sports globally and is a fantastic spectator sport. This promises to big a massive crowd pleaser for visitors. Visitors can expect to see dogs and their handlers participating in four disciplines – flyball; agility; jumping and IPO (training, obedience, and protection). This is sure to wow the crowds.
