Celebrate responsible dog ownership in the great outdoors! Join us at the picnic area for four-legged fun. Throughout the day, dog experts and exhibits are here to address your canine concerns.  Military, therapy, search and rescue dog handlers demonstrate their working dogs in action. Guest speakers and obedience experts provide helpful advice while on a training course.


Participate in dog contests, talk to rescue organization representatives, or become a Junior Bark Ranger!
