MUTTS ON THE MOUNTAIN | SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 2015

Give your pooch the chance to get his paws dirty! It’s time to get muddy with man’s best friend at Mutts on the Mountain. This brand new event is the canine version of Seven Springs’ super-popular mud run. That’s right, now even your dog can enjoy the challenge of Mud On The Mountain! We have designed a special 5k course that keeps both dogs and their humans in mind. You and Fido will take on 12 obstacles while slogging through every pup’s favorite: MUD!

Registration for Mutts on the Mountain is OPEN!

MUTTS ON THE MOUNTAIN OBSTACLES

  • Worm Hole - Send your dog through these dog tunnels.
  • Clint's Mini Dog Hurdles - Your dog can now jump over short 6 inch or 18 inch hurdles named after our favorite manager.
  • Teeter - Dog sized see saw with two different sizes for your dog to try.
  • Bent Bridge - Send your dog up and over this A-Frame obstacle.
  • Tahoe Trot - A short jaunt through our very own Lake Tahoe
  • Pile O Logs - Not the pile you see in your backyard but a pile of small logs for you and your dog to scamper over.
  • Granite Scamper - A walk through the forest which will surely give your dog a work out.
  • Sprinklerville - Try and get through this plethora of sprinklers as you and your dog make your way over a very muddy trail.
  • Ramp It Up - Jump off these ramps that challenge your pets fear of heights.
  • Cork Screw - A winding downhill trail, yes the good news is it is downhill.
  • Balance Smalance - What kind of balance does your dog have? Try one of these different balance obstacles.
  • National Velvet - Yes just like the movie with Elizabeth Taylor. Let your dog think it is a horse for one obstacle.
  • Bath Time - This is a tough obstacle. Will your dog run through a wall of suds? We are betting not, but it will be fun to watch!
  • Sand Box - Walk your dog through our sand box. Let their nose do the work and maybe they will find one of the buried treasures. Go over the fence to exit the sand box.
  • Table Top - Up the ramp and onto the table. Stop for a second and make your way back down the other side.
  • Mud Pit - Dogs love playing in the mud right?
  • Hydrant Serpentine - Finish strong by running through this fire hydrant weave.

HOW FIT DOES MY DOG HAVE TO BE TO COMPETE IN MUTTS ON THE MOUNTAIN?

As long as your dog is deemed fit and healthy in general and is fully vaccinated it can compete in the challenge. Dogs must be sociable with other dogs and humans.

Please consider your dogs age and ability to get around the course. It is not recommended if your dog has any medical conditions where over exertion is not advised. If in doubt, please speak with your veterinarian for advice.
