Dog lovers from all over the south headed to the Capital City this weekend for the Dog Expo and Agility Trials. Owners put their furry friends to the test, running them up ramps, through tunnels, and over jumps. It's all part of the United States Dog Agility Association trials.

Some of the folks here today, along with their superstar pets, will actually move on to other competitions at the end of this weekend. And while the sport is competitive, it's lots of fun too. Dog owners say it's a good way to spend time really getting to know their pets.
