Jill Hayes of Island Dog Photography & Productions gathered together some of the top-notch animal talent from the local communities and Miami.  These human and canine athletes put on a spectacular show, wowing the crowd with High-Jumping, Frisbee, and Agility. 

 Lourdes Edlin and her amazing World Class Frisbee dogs put on an amazing demonstration and explained some training techniques.  Dale Avick with Xena, a Border Collie-Australian Shepherd mix performed their debut free-style Frisbee routine


 World Famous greyhound “Soaring Cindy” demonstrated her High Jump abilities that earned her the Guinness World record.

Look-a-like contest winners  Kitty Meinecke & her rescue dog Lucky from Key Largo.

. Kathy Walker of Island Dog Academy in Islamorada, and Mari Magursky of Gold Dust Animal Care in Key Largo supplied the agility equipment. They, along with some of their students, provided entertaining agility demonstrations throughout the day.
