Woof! What's New at Bark

We have some great new entertainment at Bark in the Park™! Be sure to see the full schedule for all entertainment and contests.


Ball Haulers Flyball Team

Ball Haulers Flyball Team

Ball Haulers Flyball Team is new to Bark in 2018. Flyball is an exciting mix or relay, agility, and fetch with teams of four dogs competing head to head.  Each dog in turn jumps four hurdles, steps on a spring-loaded box and catches the ball that shoots outl, then runs back over the hurdles. The first team to have all four dogs run without errors wins the heat. In between demos, attendees can try their dogs out on a practice course.

Performances at 11:15, 12:45, and 3:15
Attendee course run-throughs at 12:00, 1:30, and 4:00
