Fort Collins holds 19th annual Doggie Olympics

[new_royalslider id=”205″]

The 19th annual Doggie Olympics took place Sunday, bringing more than 100 dogs to Fort Collins City Park.


With their owners in tow, dogs of all breeds and sizes stretched, fetched and ran throughout City Park, competing and socializing with each other.

The Doggie Olympics featured a variety of events, including frisbee catch, obstacle courses and a best trick competition.

For nearly 20 years, the Larimer Animal-People Partnership has held the Doggie Olympics in Fort Collins.

According to Kristen Heller, LAPP treasurer and coordinator of the Doggie Olympics, more than 500 people showed up for this year’s festivities.

The LAPP’s official website, the event was founded to foster the relationship between humans and their dogs.

The LAPP is a community organization that promotes the awareness and education of the importance of the human-animal bond. Through workshops, educational seminars and events like the Doggie Olympics, the organization aims to aid the community with animal assisted therapies.

Heller said the date is already set for next year’s games, Sept. 27, 2015.
