Purina’s Incredible Dog Challenge returns to St. Petersburg without spectators

smith and associates

Purina Pro Plan’s Incredible Dog Challenge will hold the Eastern Regionals at Vinoy Park beginning April 15.

For more than 20 years, Purina® Pro Plan® has given incredible canine athletes the platform to showcase their amazing abilities in exciting events like dock diving, flying disc, agility and more.

A portion of Vinoy Park has been sectioned off and will remain closed through April 17 while the regional finals take place.

In the dog agility event, a dog/handler team must complete the designated obstacle course as fast as possible, with as few mistakes as possible.

Speed, precision and dog/handler teamwork make for a successful run through the challenge course that’s made up of a variety of jumps, A-frames, tunnels and other obstacles.

In order to maintain safety measures and CDC Guidelines, the 2021 Incredible Dog Challenge Eastern and Western Regionals will not allow spectators or qualifiers. Both events are invite only.
