Heeter encourages families to watch these amazing dogs from across the world perform and to check out other free activities taking place at the park. If your dog can catch a disc then you can enter the beginner division onsite on Saturday. “There will be adoptions on-site for families looking to bring home a furry friend, plus the Bartow County 4-H Club Pet contest, other pet interactive games, and more activities for the family dog to participate in!
