Bring your four-legged friends or just come to “dog watch,” as there will be contests, demos, prizes, raffles, and – of course – The Strut! This year we’ll be showcasing the talented Skylar Landis of Belle Rose Kennels and her dog, Auggie, for agility and training demos.
You’ll be able to enjoy treats from Crow Vineyards & Winery, Sweet Cheeks Delightful Treats, Smoke Rattle & Roll, and Lockbriar Farms Ice Cream, as well as browse vendors like Rotten Mutts, LulaRoe, Fellows Helfenbein & Newman Funeral Home, and JBK Hardware. Eastern Shore Rabbit Rescue and Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue will also be on-hand!
Join us for friendly competitions and doggie activities – Best Smile, Best Costume, Pet Look-A-Like, Best Trick, Doggie Dance, the Musical Sit Game & agility fun! Special thanks to our fabulous MC, Jen Friedman, and our competition judges: Erin Heckles of Twigs & Teacups (foster business of JP & Elsa!), Kiley Shipp of Kiley Slagle Massage (and adopted mom to Jax & Scooby!), and JR Alfree of Lemon Leaf Cafe (host of our recent ‘Shindig’ fundraiser!).
The Mutt Strut and it’s 5K Run/Walk raises awareness and funds for animals who are homeless and neglected where proceeds benefit the HSKC’s efforts to continue providing for the welfare of homeless animals, providing a voice through advocacy and education, and giving a second chance to both humans and animals.
