The 2nd Annual Transylvania County K-9 Challenge!

This is your official invitation to come out and enjoy a day of fun and excitement at the 2nd annual Transylvania County K-9 Challenge!!! Whether you participate or just come out to watch the competition, it will be a great opportunity to enjoy the fall weather and a fun day outdoors in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. We are excited to establish a fun and competative event to support our local law enforcement. If you are planning to participate, be sure to register early. If you prefer to just watch, admission is free. Food and refreshments will be sold on premisis, and live music will be free for your enjoyment. Prizes and t-shirts will be awarded for the fastest times in each category. For safety concerns, there will be checkpoints along the course, and a veterinarian will be available to care for the dogs.

What is the Transylvania County K-9 Challenge? It is an annual charity event to raise money for the Transylvania County Sheriff's Office K-9 Units. It is a challenge for you and your dog. If you like agility and a challenge, this is your event. We've set up a three mile course through the woods, and over a mountain top in beautiful Transylvania County in western North Carolina. The air will be crisp and leaves starting to bloom with color. As you walk or run course, you will encounter creek walks, ropes, lake jump, and lots of obstacles. Any one and any dog can do it, but be forewarned, this is not your ordinary course! It's one with attitude... not for the faint of heart! You and your dog will participate as a team. You may run or walk the course, and each obstacle will have a bypass option if you need it.

Sounds interesting... When and where is it? It's scheduled for Saturday, September 16, 2017, at Keystone Camp in Brevard, NC. (more info on the About page.) Terrain will range from grassy meadows to steep scrambles, to mountain streams. Yeah, you'd do well to bring an extra change of dry clothes, because you will get dirty and wet.


Who can enter? This challenge is open to any and all breeds of dogs, and people. The objective here is to come out with your dog(s) for a fun day on a challenging course.

(Note: The above pictures are not the exact obstacles, but are typical of what you may encounter.)
