Dogs catch air to the extreme at Douglas County Fair
ROSEBURG, Ore. - Cows. Pigs. Air dogs?
No: X-reme AirDogs.
The careening canines show their stuff daily at the Douglas County Fair.
Mike Allen with Meadowview Productions said the dogs are scored in three different disciplines.
"Those disciplines are extreme air, long jump for dogs. You would probably relate that to the long jump in track," he said. "Extreme retrieve is down and back retrieve, full down, full back under a time system. And extreme vertical is the high jump for dogs."
The six dogs with the best scores will compete in the finals Saturday.
