Main Event - Dog Lure:
Your dog just might get addicted to Dog Lure! A small dog toy is attached to a cable. That cable is run through a specific course. Your dog will chase that toy as it moves about the course. Will he/she catch it? One thing for sure, they will love trying! Come try Dog Lure with your dog at DOGFEST.
Treibball is a great new competitive dog sport that uses exercise balls and a goal. The dog brings the balls to the handler by herding them into the goal. It is accessible to any breed and any handler regardless of the handler's physical capacity. Treibball promotes teamwork between the dog and the handler.
Come see these amazing dogs trained to help herd sheep and other animals. With great control, a good herding dog is fun to watch. Come watch sheep being herded during DOGFEST.
Dogs used for recovering wounded game are often referred to as "blood trackers" but the term can be misleading. Blood trackers are used to track when there is little or no blood. With training and experience a dog can learn to distinguish and track an individual wounded animal by other scents rather than just its blood. These gifted dogs help hunters be sure that harvested animals are not wasted.
You won't believe the amount of weight a dog can pull. Attached to safe and comfortable harnesses, dogs can pull with incredible force. Come see some of the best weight pullers in the country!
About Arise Dog Park
The Arise Community Dog Park is a free, open to the public dog park. It is a 2 acre fenced in area where dog owners can bring their dogs for unleashed socialization, exercise and play with other dogs. It is located at 11211 Dexter-Pinckney Rd, just south of Darwin Rd, about one mile south of the Pinckney High School. Please park only in the designated area.
We believe that God created people to be in community, and that we are at our best when we're in relationship to one another. Therefore, we provide this dog park not only as a fun, safe place where dogs can get good exercise, but our greatest hope is that dog owners will make friends here and enjoy great conversations together.
All users of the Arise Church Community Dog Park agree upon entry to follow the posted rules. To see a list of those rules, please (click here)
