“Strut Your Mutt Dog Show” –A Long Standing Tradition Continues!!!  For Dog and Dog-Lovers Alike

 Not all dogs are suited for the Westminster Dog Show, but we know our best friends deserve an award just for being so important in our lives.  This event honors the “family dog”.  Our beloved canine companions provide us with unconditional love and affection, and this event is all about the special relationship we share.  You will be able to enter the Pride of Your Life in these fun categories.
