Pet Events in the USA – October 2015
Fido’s Festival: SuperMutts
Pet Bistro – the organic dog food restaurant – is sponsoring the 7th Annual Fido’s Festival Supermutts event. It’s a fun weekend for dogs to engage in contests, dock dive, win prizes, and try out tons of treats and food. There will be demonstrations to watch like lure courses, disc dogs, and training tricks. Bring the whole family!
Put on your sneakers and enter the 3 mile run with your pup or do the shorter route. There will be prizes in separate categories for big dogs, small dogs, shelter dogs, and rescue dogs. All who enter will receive a tshirt, a dog bandana, and goody bag. If you don’t want to run, come and cheer! It’ll be a great day that raises money for a good cause!
Bailey’s Doggie Dash
Register you and your pup for the doggie dash. Choose between a 1 mile walk or 5K run and spend the day meeting other dog lovers and participating in events, contests, and shopping at the booths that will have the latest and greatest pet products. It will be fun and a great morning out in the park!
