The Dogs and Logs Relay will showcase the very best in canine athleticism, and we're proud to be a part of it.
St. Charles, MO (PRWEB) July 13, 2009
As a 2009 DockDogs sponsor, Royal Canin has become a recognizable partner to some of the nation's most athletic dogs as they run, jump, and retrieve. However, at this year's STIHL Dogs and Logs World Championships July 23-26, Royal Canin will be affiliated with the country's top lumberjacks as well.
For the second year in a row, teams of the very best athletes, both human and canine, have been invited to Stillwater, Minn. for head-to-head action at the STIHL Dogs and Logs World Championships. The competition includes not only the familiar DockDogs events, such as Big Air, Extreme Vertical, and Speed Retrieve, but also the Dogs and Logs Relay Championship, which pairs a lumberjack with a DockDog who retrieves bird dummies as the "jack" climbs, saws and chops.
Canine invitees for the competition were selected based on their performance at more than 60 qualifying competitions worldwide, while the lumberjacks are comprised of the top lumberjack sports athletes from all corners of North America.
"Because we provide the very best nutrition for animals, we are extremely proud to be associated with these dogs, which are some of the most athletic in the nation," said Ann Hudson, Director of Marketing at Royal Canin. "The Dogs and Logs Relay will showcase the very best in canine athleticism, and we're proud to be a part of it."
