Canine2 Presents: The Canine2 Iron Dog Competition started 10 years ago. Once a year Canine2 hosts the Iron Dog competition to raise funds to help support the orphaned, destitute and abandoned children living at the FOSCIK Children's Shelter.

The Iron Dog Competition October 20th & 21st.
The course is approximately 1.5 miles long with each K-9 team finding themselves traveling through water, running up and down hills, over fallen trees, and hiking through winding paths in the woods. To top that off there are obstacles such as hurdles, stairs, etc. standing in your path waiting to be conquered.
Other activities include a scramble ramp, a toy pit. Other scenarios include crawls,running through tires and other obstacles. For any scenario not completed properly there will be penalty time added to your finish time. The entire event is timed for each individual, and MUST be completed on lead. To make it easier- there will not be any point loss for extra commands or needed obedience, therefore you and your dog may concentrate only on the goal...completing the course in the fastest time!
There are Two Divisions (women and mens divisions), There are four (4) age group categories in each division... #(1) 18 thru 30 ... #(2) 31 thru 40 ... #(3) 41 thru 50 and #(4)51 & over.
