The fur will fly on Saturday and Sunday as over 100 of the world’s best canine athletes compete in the 2012 IFCS World Agility Championship at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.
 
With the 2012 Olympics quickly approaching, it’s important to remember that humans are not the only competitive creatures.
 
Dogs from 12 different countries began competing on Thursday in a battle to become the IFCS World Champion. Make no bones about it: the competition is fierce!
 
The dogs, along with their human handlers, maneuver through courses averaging one-hundred-eighty yards in forty seconds or less. Points are awarded individually and as a team, and are based on skill, speed, accuracy, and strategy.
 
The tail-wagging action begins at 9 a.m. each day.  Admission is $5 for adults and parking is an additional $5.
 
Will Rogers Memorial Center is located at 3401 W. Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth.
 
More event details can be found on IFCS’s website.
