Ashley Whippet World Cup Championship

Labor day weekend involves all sorts of fun and games including the
Ashley Whippet World Cup Championships.

Dogs flung into action along the Naperville Riverwalk at the Grand Pavilion this morning to show off their moves.

Even the man who started the sport of K9 frisbee 40 years ago stopped by for all the action.

“It blows me away, it’s in six different continents and there’s probably ten to 20 thousand dogs playing frisbee all across the world which is unbelievable, “ said Alex Stein, originator of the K9 frisbee sport.

This is not the first time the championships have been held in Naperville, but the Riverwalk backdrop drew people from across the globe.

“We have people from all over the world coming in for it because they love this town, they love the parks and it’s just a great competition and it’s all fun,” said Tom Wehrli, Ashely Whippet Invitational participant.

The final round of K9 competition is the U.F.O North American Cup Championships. It will take place tomorrow at the same location, starting at 9:30 a.m.
