The Santa Maria Kennel Club kicked off its three-day American Kennel Club Dog Agility Trial Friday.
The event takes place at the Elks Lodge in Santa Maria.
The trial is open to any dog that is registered with the AKC or AKC Canine Partners Program.
Throughout the weekend, guests can see pure bred and mixed breeds competing.
"There's nothing like partnership with your dog. You and your dog are a team, and you're out there running that course together. It's all about being a team with your dog," said Renee Meriaux from Thousand Oaks.
"If your dog is food or toy motivated, and if you like doing a lot of fun things with your dog, this is it. It doesn't get any better than this," said Dave Swinson of the Santa Maria Kennel Club.
The event continues until Sunday.
