High-flying SuperDogs at Whoop Up Days

There were some high-flying dogs doing some amazing tricks on Thursday afternoon.

The SuperDogs were at Whoop Up Days performing all types of acrobatic and crowd-pleasing moments.

Staff with the organization say the competition has been thrilling audiences for over 40 years and each dog undergoes rigorous training before they step up to the big times.

“When they come to us as puppies or as rescues or older dogs, what we’re doing is we’re seeing what they like to do. Some dogs love tricks. She loves to do the precision work, the tricks, fun stuff like that. Other dogs, like the agility, they like to run, they like to go fast, play and bark and all that sort of stuff. So a lot of our dogs play multiple sports like flyball, agility, frisbee, competitively. And then this is their fun and their joy to come and perform for people,” says Christina Chapelsky, one of the trainers for SuperDogs.

The SuperDogs show runs daily starting at 2pm every two hours until 8pm each night at the BigSteelBoxArena.
