The pinnacle of K9 sporting prowess came to a head for the inaugural 2018 Common Woof Games which launched into action in the ROYAL CANIN® Arena, featuring some of Australia’s most talented sporting K9s in action!

The ROYAL CANIN® Arena hosted by none other than Dave Graham, was once again a huge success bringing together the most elite four-legged sporting talents in Australia, representing four countries across the Commonwealth competing across ball-sports and track and field events that will excite and inspire the whole family!

Here’s a highlight of each of the competitions taken out at the ROYAL CANIN® Arena as part of the Common Woof Games

 

 

 

Dog Socca

There were no show-ponies in the Common Woof Games, these K9 talents were primed for pole pawsition having only one mission in mind – score as many goals as they could in a nonstop, blink-and-you’d-miss-it shootout.

 


Dog Vault

Gravity-defying and awe-inspiring, these spring-loaded athletes scaled a wall in rapid-fire form. It was fast-paced, exhilarating and had you on the edge of your seat cheering them on.

 

 

Dog Basketball

This was one sport notorious for favouring six-footers, but not in the Common Woof Games. In a game of skill – the Michael Jordan’s, LeBron James’s and Stephen Curry’s of the dog world showed off some hoop-time in a shoot-out guaranteed having the NBA’s draft selectors scouting!

 

 

 

MiniDog Hurdles

Endurance, speed and accuracy are the secret formula for success. These incredible dogs coordinated not two, but four lead and trail legs without missing a beat, judging the exact moment to take-off efficiently and aerodynamically and make it home as the winning woofer.

 

 

 

Javelin Weave 

Ragnar Lothbrok called and wanted his Viking warrior dogs back. Poached straight from the training grounds of the elite, these tough-as-nails woofletes ducked, weaved and raced though blunt javelins released by their human coaches against the clock!

 

Barrel Racing

There ain’t no cowboys here – these courageous and clever Common Woof canines didn’t sweat the small stuff as they traversed three barrels in a clover-leaf pattern defying time and circling just centimetres away from penalties.

 

 


Discus Throw

If you’ve ever tried to catch a Malteser with your mouth you will understand the challenge of eye-mouth coordination. Well, imagine a world where your hands are your mouth, and admire these incredibly coordinated K9’s as they caught as many frisbees as possible against the clock. Watch as they ducked and weaved and found optimum position – primed for the mark-of-the-moment in a bid to secure the gold medal!

 

Puppy Sprint

The All Nations 10 metre Puppy Sprint was the cutest canine comPawtition on earth! Audiences cheered on these little racing representative champions of their homelands as they raced down the main arena in a furry flurry of big feet, floppy ears and a photo finish that broke the internet!
