Monster Dog Pull Application & Rules Online Registration

Dogs of all shapes and sizes are encouraged to enter the Fourth Annual Monster Dog Pull competition taking place on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 11 am.

Competing dogs will be divided into weight classes, don a harness, and (with great encouragement from their owners) successfully pull a weighted sled down a short snowy track. Whether you have a Dachshund or a St. Bernard, bring that special pooch downtown--join in the fun and compete for valuable prizes and the satisfaction of a job well done!

We strongly encourage contestants to pre-register online by Friday, February 14 for one of the limited 75 contestant spots.  Registration will only be offered on site only if space is available. Check-in will begin at 10:00 am and the first pull event will start at 11:00 am. $10.00 entrance fee per dog. A portion of the fee will be donated to local animal shelters.  Dogs are encouraged to bring their family to cheer on their favorite pooch!
