Somerville Dog Festival! Free Fun For Fido!

I've been working with City Dog Training and Porter Square Veterinarian, Dr. Adam Parker, to put on a fun festival for dogs and their people. The Somerville Dog Festival is sure to be a hit, it's free, and thanks to sponsors and vendors, all proceeds will go to support the Northeast Animal Shelter

My friend Ashley is bringing her fantastic band of Border Collies down from Vermont to showcase the wonderful and athletic sport of K9 Disk. Leah, (City Dog Trainer Extraordinaire!), will be running handlers and dogs through an agility course.

In addition, there will be a ring set up for people to try different sports with their dogs, including Agility, Rally, and Nosework. There will be Canine Good Citizen testing available where you can meet Zeppy (the Lead Reporter for this blog), the Somerville Police K9, urban mushing, and many contests for you & your dog to win prizes!

There will be a best trick, a pulling contest, Come when Called clinics, a costume show, and many different vendors set up for your dog to shop.

Come one, come all, and come say hi to me over at the Frisbee tent!

So come out with your dog, have fun in these last nice weeks before we get our annual winter blast, and support a good cause!
