Bring your dog to the park this Saturday.

Get your dog out of the house and bring your pet for a day of fun during Dog Days at the Village Park this Saturday, August 4, from 10 - 4.  You can both enjoy tasty treats from the vendors.  Let your dog find something new at the dog supplies and services vendors. 

Both of you will want to “sit” for the presentations and demonstrations on the main stage kicked off at 10 with live music.  WCCO’s Pat Kessler will emcee throughout the day.
  • Watch Maggie the Four-legged Therapist show animal-assisted therapy with Sandy Clark.
  • Meet Autumn who helped rescue a missing child recently along with her owner Jason Moser. 
  • See Viper new Pierce County K-9, and his partner, Sheriff’s Deputy Andy Thoms, at work.
  • Learn from Wrench and his dog trainer John May.
  • Hear about Lilly’s canine-assisted therapy with Danette Jones, MSSW.

If your dog and you feel competitive, enter the celebrated canine competitions throughout the afternoon which include best dressed/best hair, look alike/best name, and best trick.  Try canine acupuncture and pick up a free doggie bag of treats while supplies last.

Take a walk through town, see what’s new in the shops, and relax with a refreshing beverage at one of the eateries. 

We’d love to see you again,
