See Spot run, strut his groomed stuff, or leap for a Frisbee at these events for dog-obsessed travelers.

AKC Agility Championship

1 of 15

Ask a dog what he wants to do, and you’ll get one of three answers: eat, sleep, or run. And when it’s time to run, they might as well do it through an obstacle course. Think Marines in boot camp have it rough? Let them try going through a tunnel, coming out to a teeter-totter (in training, the hard part is to keep the dog from getting startled by the clank sound), and then through the weave poles before crossing a bridge. Points scored for time, against for missing an obstacle. The AKC holds warm-up events around the country, leading to the Nationals, which will be in Tulsa, in 2013. classic.akc.org
