The greatest canine athletes on planet earth ran fast, flew high and bit hard at the 2013 Hyperflite Skyhoundz Xtreme Distance World Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on September 26, 2013.

Rather than prancing on carpet, like the primped and pampered pooches you might see at Westminster, these amazing canine athletes gouged out chunks of turf as they raced to snag spinning discs in midair. The 2013 Skyhoundz Xtreme Distance World Championship featured ultra-long throws made by the world's best long distance throwers and amazing last-second catches from amazing sure-mouthed canines.

When the dust settled, Robert McLeod from Calgary, Alberta, Canada with canine Davy Whippet took home top honors in the Men's Classic Plastic Division. This marks the 3rd straight year they have won this title. Along with their 2012 title in the Men's Unlimited Plastic Division, Rob and Davy have 4 World Championships along with 5 World Records, including the Guinness World Record for Longest Throw with a Flying Disc to a Dog, a record for which they appear in the 2014 Guinness Book of World Records.
