One Response to Incredible Dog Challenge National Finals

  1. I love it! They need to create a service dog catagory. That would be amazing. Worlds best Search & Rescue Dog, Seeing eye dog obstacle courses, Various water rescue scenarios. There are an endless number of possibilities. I rarely ever watch TV but I could watch videos of talented dogs at work and play all day.
