The Dog Bowl is an annual spectacle that is a favourite of many Calgary Stampede-goers, and for good reason. What more can you ask for than adorable canines flying around, zipping in and out of obstacles, and just being all-around good boys?
The performers, known as the Canine Stars, were even featured on America’s Got Talent, and they certainly have talent in spades. These dogs — many of whom are rescues — race, catch frisbees, dance and dock-dive into a ball pit as part of the show.
You can still catch a show during the last days of Stampede. The Dog Bowl shows run daily at 11:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. in Hall D of the BMO Centre. Unsurprisingly, seats to watch the Dog Bowl fill up quickly, so be sure to arrive early.
