*Fun and education for dogs and their families! Dog health and wellness presentations, dog/kids games, treat tasting for your dog, and Deke (an ACHS alumni) will be picking numbers for BINGO! *Don't have a dog? No problem! Join us for the Pie and Ice Cream Social (same location) or enjoy a slice of pie with ice cream. We will also have whole pies available for purchase. All pies are homemade! Don’t be late, these sell out quickly! *New this year we will have a rally course! Rally or Rally-O is actually called Rally Obedience. It is a dog sport based on obedience. Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge’s orders, the competitors proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position. The course consists of 10 to 20 signs that instruct the team what to do. Also, unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course. *The popular Pick a Duck game will return! Watching dogs “pick” their duck in a pool of water is always entertaining as the techniques they use are unique to each pup! Everyone is a winner in this game! *Presentations! Featuring Dog Obedience, Microchips, and your dog’s health and well being. All are free and full of information that all dog owners will find interesting. *All dogs attending will receive a free gift!
