World Championship brings four legged competitors from around the world

Posted: Updated:

Coolidge Park is normally off limits to dogs, however, that's exactly where you can find hundreds of four legged competitors this weekend. All of them are competing in the Hyperflite World Championship.

Competitors have come from Europe, China, Japan and Korea, just to name a few countries. They're agile, athletic, and can leap over a standing child. The canine competitors have practiced everyday, hours a day, for this big moment.

The Skyhoundz Hyperflite World Championship is hosted right here in the Scenic City. However, unlike other competitions, the world champion won't take home cash.

"They don't come for money they come because they want the recognition of their peers and they want to show everybody that their dog is the best in the world," organizer, Jeff Perry says.

About 200 competitors will compete in this year's world championship. The competition continues Sunday with toy breeds and goes from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public, however the only dogs allowed in Coolidge Park are competitors. McKamey Animal Shelter will also be on hand with dogs available for adoption.
