Dog athletes showed off their best moves on Saturday at the Skyhoundz South Central Regional World Qualifier.

The Dallas Dog and Disc Club hosted the tournament in Southlake’s Bob Jones Park on Saturday.

Canine competitors and their handlers performed in distance/accuracy and freestyle events.

In Distance/Accuracy teams get points based on catches performed within a time limit.

During the freestyle event, the teams get to perform choreographed routines with various tricks and catches.

Under a sunny sky, dogs were running in between their owners’ legs, jumping off their partners’ backs and leaping in the air to catch discs.
