More than 100 dogs from Pennsylvania to Tennessee raced through an obstacle course in Roanoke last weekend. Dog owners guided their canine companions as they hurdled, crawled, and sprinted through the 13th annual Star City Canine Agility Trials at Hollins University. Training for these events requires year-round dedication, said Trial Coordinator Linda Anderson. Competitors travel all over the East coast to compete, and many are already getting geared up for the trials at the Virginia Horse Center in Rockbridge County early next year.
