International Sportsmen's Expo - Arizona
Water-Jumping Dogs Always Amaze At ISE
January 1, 2018
The 2018 International Sportsmen's Expo and Arizona Boat Show, March 23-26 at WestWorld of Scottsdale, welcomes the return of the wildly popular DockDogs® competition. This international competition offers three disciplines: Big Air®, Extreme Vertical®, and Speed Retrieve®.
DockDogs® welcomes any breed, any mix and any size dog to its Dock Diving® family. Rules and entry information will be posted at DockDogs.com by mid-January.
The 18th annual International Sportsmen's Expo has announced even more new activities for the 2018 event.
Already the state's largest annual show spotlighting fishing, hunting, boating and outdoor gear and destinations, the 2018 Expo will include the aforementioned DockDogs, the most-popular tour of water-jumping dogs. "WestWorld's vast outdoor space makes that possible," said John Kirk, Expo director of communications.
"We've also expanded our Wilderness Camp, hosted by Scottsdale-based Todd Jostes, the Wilderness Man," Kirk continued. "Todd recently won top honors on Discovery Channel's Bushcraft Build Off show. He'll present free survival, bushcraft and outdoor-skills seminars every day at his camp."
The Arizona Boat Show - held in the giant Multi-Use Tent at WestWorld - will grow again, offering additional dealers and models of sport and fishing boats. The Expo's sale of UTVs and ATVs will also expand.
The Expo's Adventure Theater will offer new, free seminars highlighting offroading and camping vehicles, hosted by Adventure Portal, the leading website for overlanding. Another new talk, "So, you didn't get your tag...now what?" will be led by Trevon Stoltzfus, host of the television show Outback Outdoors.
Other show activities include Offroad Test Track, Outdoor Product Showcase, Bass Demonstration Tank, Watersports Pond, Zipline, Climbing Wall and Fly-Casting Pond.
