As we told you about back in November, I had the chance to travel to St. Louis to attend the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge, the finals in a nationwide event that really is incredible. Dogs of every size were competing on the field in events that ranged from dock diving to pole weaving.
We recently received this fun collection of 15 fun moments the Incredible Dog Challenge has enjoyed during its history:
June 2007 – The Incredible Dog Challenge makes its first appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” featuring three diving dog competitors showcasing the sport on the street in New York City. The following year, actor and comedian Seth Rogen tests his skills at “human” dog diving as he attempts a dive in the pool.
April 2012 – ESPN debuts highlights from the Incredible Dog Challenge in Atlanta, Ga., where a free throw shot made by canine athlete, Mako, makes No. 10 on SportsCenter’s “Top Ten Plays.” ESPN also featured the Challenge as part of a viewer’s poll on SportsNation, where a diving dog competitor beat out MLB player Giancarlo Stanton for “Best Dive.”
