If you are interested in participating in one of our contests, you can register for them now or sign-up on the day of the event. The contest list is below:

  • Not-So-Stupid Pet Tricks: Is your dog really good at tricks? Can they play dead? Or walk on their hind legs? We want to see it!! 
  • Look-Alike: Some say that when you and your dog hang together too much, you start to resemble each other. If that's the case, sign you and your dog up for the Look-Alike Contest. We want to see how similar you and your dog are to each other! 
  • Most Patriotic Costume: Dress your dog in their favorite red, white, and blue outfit and show off how Patriotic your pooch is. Get creative!
  • Simon Says: Does your dog do well at following commands like sit, stay, and lay down? This may be the contest for them! Simon Says is a fun game that will test your dog's skills with basic commands. 

You can sign up for one or all of the contests HERE.
