Visit Gray Summit, Missouri, the "Yankee Stadium of dog shows," for a unique competition featuring tiny terriers. Hosted by four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Terry Bradshaw.
The Westminster Kennel Club's annual extravaganza may be better known, but the heart of the dog show circuit is Gray Summit, Missouri. The town, which lies just outside St. Louis, is home to Purina Foods. And in 1922, to celebrate the pets their business is built on, they opened Purina Farms. For nearly 80 years now, the facility has hosted an incredible array of dog shows--including the Whammo Frisbee catching championships and upscale competitions--and become famous as the "Yankee stadium of dog shows."
None of the competitions are as distinctive--or as popular--as the Jack Russell Trials, held every Memorial Day Weekend. For three days, the pint-sized terriers compete in a riot of crowd pleasing events, which conclude with the thrilling Top Gun Challenge, where the low-slung dogs vault over obstacles as much as six times their height!
Filled with incredible footage and interviews with the contestants' trainers and handlers, this video is an insider's look at the world of dog trials and a must-have for any dog fancier.
Hosted by four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Terry Bradshaw.
