PHOTOS: Dogs Go For Gold In Local 'Pawlympics'

ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA)-- Pet Dominion, a canine lodging resort, holds its final round of doggie daycare competition this Thursday, capping the past two weeks of "Pawlympics" medal events for the daycare dogs and their humans.

Pooches have been competing in swimming, diving, gymnastics, 200M dash and hurdles.

Last week's preliminary rounds determined the finalists and the last event of the Pawlympics, the hurdles, takes place over a specially designed course.

The winning dog will receive a Pawlympic Gold Medal. All other participants will receive a take-home trophy or ribbon.

Pet Dominion invites local dog owners to bring them to the competition, kicking off at 1 p.m. Thursday. No reservations are needed.
