We would like to celebrate the different breeds and offer you the opportunity to show off your best friend. There are dog costume contests, a speed-sit game, a mini obstacle course and more. There will be prizes for the contest winners.

1. Dog Costume Contest
Whether it is a poodle princess, a bulldog butterfly, or a Little Bo Peep sheep dog, let your imagination run wild and show off your dog’s best costume to win. You and your dog will walk the ‘fashion’ runway together.

2. Speed-sit Game
How many sits you can get with your dog in two minutes? The dog-owner team with the most sits in two minutes wins.

3. Obstacle Course
Simple obstacle course will be set up for you and your dog to go through. The team that complete obstacle courses fastest win the game.

4. Golf Ball Relay Walk (Each team has 4 pairs of owner & dog)
You will have the six-foot leash looped around the wrist and balance the golf ball on the tablespoon in the same hand. You will walk one round of the route, hand spoon and ball to the next person. The team that has all dogs walked first, wins. $3-$5 plus $5 parking. 706-359-3458.
