My Dog Can Do That

My Dog Can Do That

The March "My Dog Can Do That" competition offered by Peaceable Paws Dog and Puppy Training on March 21, 2008, drew 14 canine competitors and more than 30 humans. The event is a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Washington County.

This was month three of a year-long tournament event. Each first place winner earns five points, second place earns three points, and third place earns one point toward the year-end totals. The top 10-point winners at the end of the year will be invited to compete in the Championship Final Event in December.
