Area residents will have an opportunity to meet RIN TIN TIN, the world’s most famous German Shepherd Dog, during the Second Annual AKC Responsible Dog Ownership day to be held on Saturday, Sept. 11 at the Jiggs Askew Memorial Dog Park.
The event is sponsored by the Alamance Kennel Club and the fun will begin at 10 a.m. with a special pet parade around the dog park. The theme for the event is “Patriotic Pooches” and there will be scores dressed in the ever popular red, white and blue.
One of the highlights of the day will be the Responsible Dog Ownership Program presented by RIN TIN TIN. The program will appeal to youth as well as adults and includes information helpful to anyone who might come in contact with a dog.
In addition, those attending will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with RIN TIN TIN with the proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of Alamance County.
The event will also include herding, obedience, agility, fly-ball and K-9 unit demonstrations guaranteed to delight audience members. The thrill of herding, precise execution of obedience, accuracy of agility, speed of fly-ball and intricate nature of K-9 work will appeal to the entire audience. Serious fanciers will be on hand to share information about the various performance sports with audience members.
This not-to-be-missed Responsible Dog Ownership Day will appeal to the casual pet owner as well as the serious fancier who frequently competes in performance trials at American Kennel Club sanctioned dog shows.
Added features of the day will include plenty of food vendors and contests for pets of all kinds.
Organizers have also planned rabies and microchip clinics to allow residents the opportunity to secure their pets vaccinations and identification in one convenient location.
Vendor booths are available at $25. For additional information contact Kathy Myers at 336-437-6109.
