Elite dog show in Natchez this weekend!

An elite dog show called the “Super Retriever Series Crown Championship” is coming to Natchez this weekend and you don’t want to miss it!

This is the first time this national dog show has come to Natchez since it started 19 years ago.

The dog show features some of the best hunting dogs and handler teams from all over the United States. There are dock events and hunting events that will all happen this weekend on the Natchez Bluff.

The show features three dock events for the dogs to participate in. One is called “Super Fly”, where the dog jumps into the air and tries to grab a toy. Another event, the “Super V” is to see how high the dog can jump vertically. Finally, the “Raider Run” is a speed test where the dogs jump off of a dock and swim for a bumper in the water then back to the dock.

Another portion of the show is dedicated to hunting competitions. The tests include a field trial, a hunting test, and a hunting scenario.

More than 60 dogs are expected to participate in this championship. 12 of those dogs will compete in the final round, called “The Crown” on Sunday.

All of the finals from these 12 competitors will be recorded and featured on the Discovery Network in the spring of 2020.
