For thousands of years, the dog has been in the service of humankind, performing all kinds of tasks from the trivial to more critical, life-saving duties, oftentimes at the cost of their own lives.
IronDog celebrates the bond between humans and dogs by highlighting the incredible abilities of the animal that is the dog. Their superb athleticism. Their great intelligence. The powerful sensing abilities. The endless drive to work and the passion to please.
The IronDog competition rewards dog owners and trainers for the pursuit of excellence and honors their struggle to preserve the age-old relationship between Man and Dog.
