Please join us on July 25th as we celebrate the High Country Pet Fest with our summer Dog Show. The show begins at 12:30 p.m.  Registration begins at 12:00 p.m.  An afternoon of dog gone fun will be had as dogs of all ages and breeds compete for prizes and ribbons in various categories from the Smallest to the Largest, the Best Handshake to the Best Tail Wagger, the Youngest and the Oldest and many more.

All category winners will go on to compete for the title of “People’s Choice” and the grand prize. A local trainer will be on hand to demonstrate training techniques.

This event will also include raffle prizes for many pet related products and for your furry best friend.
