Arizona Highways: Canines compete for title of 'Top Dog' on agility course (VIDEO)

COTTONWOOD, AZ - So you think your dog is special?

Well, Arizona Highways caught up with a group of dogs training to run the agility course at the Verde Valley Dog Agility Course in Cottonwood.

The dogs aren't learning "stupid pet tricks" but challenging themselves with speed and talent.

Any kind of dog can run the agility course which is made up of a series of obstacles a dog must go over, under and through in the fastest time possible.

The course is measured for the length of the dogs' legs since they come in all different sizes.

The owners are not permitted to touch the dogs during the course but they must guide the dogs through.

To be champions, dogs have to master speed and control on the obstacle course.
