You're an animal lover, so it goes without saying that you love seeing dogs perform extraordinary feats (and have a blast doing so). That being the case, there's no way you'll want to miss the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge National Finals airing Sat., Jan. 14, at 5 p.m. ET, on NBC. You'll see Freestyle Flying Disc, 30-Weave Pole Race, Agility and Jack Russell Hurdles. Want more? Tune in to see a world record broken in the Dog Diving event! You may recall that the finals actually took place back in October, just outside of St. Louis, Mo., at Purina Farms. You might also remember that we were there for the whole thing, interviewing participants and cheering on the competitors. Heck, we even got down and dirty on the agility course!

While you're waiting for the popcorn to pop (for you) and baking a few dog biscuits (for your own incredible dog), check out our coverage of the event.
