This year is the 20th anniversary of the Grand Prix of Dog Agility at the USDAA Championships being held this week in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In honor of this milestone, the Cynosport World Games Dog Agility Championships will open today with the running of the original course from the 1st Grand Prix in 1988. That year only 79 dogs competed in the three-day weekend tournament event in Houston, Texas. The course was simple by in comparison to today's courses and it only included 17 obstacles.
Today over 700 dogs will be competing, beginning at 2:00 MST.
