Doggone Good

Super Dogs, in performance today and tomorrow at the National Western Stock Show, is a twenty-dog ensemble that elevates jumping and retrieving — not to mention tunnel relays and maze mastery — to completely new levels.

“They have Frisbee dogs and choreograph things with music,” explains National Western spokeswoman Karen Woods, emphasizing the difference between Super Dogs and the rest of the Stock Show. “It’s not stock dogs that are rodeo- or livestock-driven, [like the] dogs that herd cattle and sheep. Those are our stock dogs that work on the ranch. These are entertainment dogs.”

The Super Dogs program begins at 2 p.m. today and 6:30 p.m. tomorrow. Tickets start at $12 and include one-day admission to the National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt Street. A $99 Family Four Pack, which includes four tickets, four hot dogs, four bags of chips and four drinks, is also available. For more information, go to
Mon., Jan. 20, 2 p.m.; Tue., Jan. 21, 6:30 p.m., 2014
