Fun Dog Activities At The Tournament

 The main motive for the Cordoba Open tournament to be a dog-friendly one was to help spectators and their pets have an enjoyable time together. Hence, while the matches were played, dogs could have their own bit of fun in the dog park. There were loads of activities for them to enjoy their time as well.

The tournament organized agility tests for dogs, (a form of canine sport) wherein the intelligence and flexibility of canines were evaluated, along with the pet parent’s ability to train and direct their furry munchkin. The tests included the following:

  • Jumping fences for better synchronization
  • Walking through a dark tunnel for boosting their confidence levels
  • Climbing a 45 degrees ramp for strength building
  • Waiting for order on a table for practicing obedience


These fun activities were a great way for pet parents to not only enjoy the game but to also create memorable moments and bond with their four-legged friends.
