Four-legged contestants, from all walks of life and corners of the land, will go claw-to-claw to compete in the greatest obstacle course ever created for dogs. Pitting canine competitors (and their handlers) against each other in an extremely difficult course, this K9 Ninja Challenge comp will sort puppies from pawthletes. Who will be crowned Top Dog in Melbourne Royal Show's K9 Ninja Challenge!

When the command is given, they’ll leap between sharply-angled platforms, defy hanging rings, weave through wind chimes on the balance beam, and ascend to the heights of the pillars of Hercules. Pausing at the half-way point, the teams will climb ladders, propel themselves into the circular tunnel and out onto the raised vaults from platform to platform, then shoot through another tunnel to sniff out and retrieve a hidden ninja star.  Panting hard by now, these wannabe ninjas will regroup before taking on the summit of ‘Mount Pawiusko’ and hitting the buzzer to stop the clock.

Anything is possible and nothing is an obstacle in K9 Ninja Challenge! Witness the greatness in four spectacular daily shows.
