For nearly a decade, the Teacup Dog Agility Association has held its Petit Prix Western Championship.
And for the first time that event is being held in Wichita Falls.
Some are fast while are slow but inside this ring at the J.S. Bridwell Ag Center each dog became the center of attention.
More than 80 small canines competed in the Teacup Dog Agility Association's Petit Prix Western Championship hosted by Small Paws Over Texas Agility.
"This is the first time this national event has been held south of Illinois, as a matter of fact. It's the first one ever in the southern or southwestern part of the United States," says Kim Brewer, president of Small Paws Over Texas Agility.
And coordinators say getting the event here had them jumping through some hoops.
"We had to apply and we had to show that we had the volunteers and the organization to get this event," Brewer adds.
So far participants agree.
"Everyone here so far has been really nice and everyone's keeping it a fun atmosphere and that's what I really like cause that's why we're here... to have fun with our dog," says Regina Schmerfeld who is from Yukon, OK.
"Where we compete up in Black Forest, we have very few limited bathrooms. These are awesome. It's a nice, big area so we have plenty of space," says Donette Belkmap who is from Colorado Springs, CO.
"This is the greatest facility. Usually when we're running on dirt it's all crumbled up and the dogs have to kind of dig their way through it. This is really a terrific facility," adds Dee Yates, who is from San Antonio, TX.
A facility that has dozens of dog owners barking about Wichita Falls and the volunteers abilities to showcase the big skills of these petite pets.
The competition continues from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The public is invited to watch, free of charge.
However, coordinators ask that you leave your dogs at home and that you do not use flash photography, which distracts the little contestants.
