The K9 Sports Konnection is an online radio show dedicated to dogs and the people who love them. Every Tuesday, starting at 6 p.m. Mountain Time, Steve Mize broadcasts his show live from Georgia to a nationwide audience.
The show largely focuses on canine athletics, such as weight pulling, dock diving, lure coursing, agility and Treibball. Other episodes include product reviews (where listeners can usually win giveaways), discussions about canine diets and more. The show is entertaining and educational, featuring experts such as Victoria Stilwell, dog trainer and star of Animal Planet's It's Me or the Dog.
Besides the featured guests, other show segments include "Waggin' Rights" where people can brag about their dogs' recent accomplishments, "K9 Hero" which honors working dogs, "Event Calendar" and "Rescue of the Week" where an adoptable animal is highlighted.
Listeners are encouraged to interact with the show by asking questions in the chat room or by calling into the show. Can't listen live? Download the podcasts to listen to at work, while driving or while walking your dog.
The show will be on hiatus for the holidays on December 24 and 31, 2013, but you won't want to miss the 1-year anniversary show on January 21, 2014. It's going to be a lot of fun with surprise guests and lots of giveaways.
