Some of the most talented and primped pups in the nation gathered there on Saturday for the annual Masters Agility Championship and Meet the Breeds event, where dog lovers had the chance to interact with them before and after they took to the ring. With the competition slated to begin in earnest on Monday and Tuesday, we'd like to introduce you to some of the pups who are part of the competition.
