NAPERVILLE, IL– Competitive dogs from around the world gathered in Naperville, Illinois over the weekend of September 3rd to compete in the Ashley Whippet Invitational Competition. These daring dogs took part in various competitions and amazed the judges and spectators.

Maryann traveled from Ontario, Canada with her dog, Crush. Explaining the different components of the competition, she said: “Freestyle is based on criteria for tricks, how well the handler and a dog interact, the dog himself, the handler himself, and it’s based on a lot of short movements and tricks and even more throws .”

She went on to explain, “Throw and catch, you have 60 seconds to make as many throws as possible and throw as far as possible to score points.”
