At the Festival this year are several events/activities that you’ll want to be sure to see.
Descriptions are below, along with links to more detailed information pages.
The South Central Missouri Kennel Club, located in West Plains, will bring a demonstration of their various training disciplines to the Old Time Music, Ozark Heritage Festival at 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 3. The demonstrations will include drill team, rally, obedience, and agility; and will be held in the Mule Jump area at East Main and Curry Streets.
Drill team is a group of dogs and handlers going through a variety of coordinated maneuvers; obedience requires each dog to work individually, showing their ability to follow commands; rally is a spin off from obedience, requiring dog and handler to complete specific maneuvers on the course; and agility involves obstacles taken in the order the judge specifies.
