EzyDog Supports Local Keg Pull

EzyDog Supports Local Shelter At Annual K-9 Keg Pull

Event Raises Money For Panhandle Animal Shelter

Sandpoint, Idaho (February 27, 2018) This past weekend, on a snowy winter morning in Sandpoint Idaho, headquarters to EzyDog USA, dogs of all shapes and sizes lined up to compete, while raising money for the Panhandle Animal Shelter during the twentieth annual Eichhardt’s K-9 Keg Pull.  Sporting EzyDog harnesses, the dogs took turns racing down the snowy track, empty beer kegs in tow, in pursuit of the best time in their class. Proud pet owners helped incentivize their dogs on the track as they raced toward victory while fans cheered from the sidelines.  The EzyDog team was on site supporting the event and fitting the dogs with Chest Plate Harnesses to give them the pull they needed to perform their best.

The K-9 Keg Pull is one of many events held during Sandpoint’s Winter Carnival and never fails to draw a crowd. The local community and visitors abroad show up to revel in the light-hearted competition while generating revenue for their local shelter every year. Depending on their size, dogs pull everything from full-sized kegs to beer cans and the spectacle is full of surprises, both exciting and humorous. The event is full of socializing for dogs and humans alike.
