The ROYAL CANIN® Arena hosted a wide array of Common Woof Games events with a jam-packed program including the opening ceremony extravaganzahalf-time entertainment by The Wonderdogs, a swag of competitions, and of course, some emotional medal presentations crowning the woofing-winners.

With everything from Hurdles to Barrel Racing, Basketball to Socca and even Discus Throw – some of Australia’s most talented K9s trained very hard to wow you with their agility, skill, and sporting prowess!

Brisbane also played host to the aquatic section of the Common Woof Games where the Black Hawk DockDogs Pool presented a program of breathtaking water sports including the Big Air® and Speed Retrieve competitions.  The program featured Big Air ®(Long Jump),  Speed Retrieve®, and Extreme Vertical® (high jump for dogs).
