If your dog can sit and down he can register to race in Acme Canine’s Doggie Derby. Dogs compete by moving along spaces on a course determined by the roll of a die. Each turn requiring the dog to either hold a sit or hold a down. If the dog breaks a command, they are eliminated from the heat. The first dog to make it to the end of the course without breaking commands wins the race. They will receive a prize and have their picture published and owners listed on Acme Canine’s facebook page.

The races take place 2pm on Sundays in May.
6 dogs per heat and 3 heats on May 5, 12, 19 and 26.
Dog trainers and dog owners alike can compete in the races….We’d love to have a friendly competition between Columbus Dog Trainers.
$20 to enter a dog to race. Prizes for winning include tickets to Columbus Clippers, dog beds, grooming certificates and more.
Anyone can watch the race and can also give a $5 donation “bet” or product donation on who they feel the winning dog will be. Winning bets receive a free bath at Acme Canine.
All proceeds go to our nonprofit organization for 2013, Circle Tail.
