Dog lovers and their friends: it is time for another round of canine capers at this annual event featuring vendor exhibits, fun games and activities for your playful pooch. Polite, leashed dogs welcome. No retractable leashes allowed. Dogs must be current on all necessary vaccinations. Raffle proceeds benefit the Los Angeles County Lancaster Animal Shelter.
Some activities include: dog agility, lure coursing, obedience assessments, games, and a Fashion Parade sponsored by Blue Buffalo Pet Foods. New are the Doggy Fun Zone (a dog obstacle course) and Flyball demonstrations.
Animal rescue groups and community organizations will be onsite to provide information regarding animal care best practices and to promote responsible dog ownership. In addition, proceeds raised from the event, predominantly through raffles and contributions, will once again be donated to the Lancaster Animal Shelter. Every year, attendees help raise thousands of dollars at this hugely popular event.
All of the fun will take place Saturday, October 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, October 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
