Ever wanted to learn paddleboarding with your pooch? How about relaxing with poolside yoga while your dog enjoys free Bruster’s ice cream? You can do all that and more at this year’s 12th annual Pet Expo!
The Pet Expo has come to be a free, fun tradition that animal lovers look forward to each year. With the addition of a Dog Swim last year, a new, delightful tradition was introduced. This year, in memory of Maggie, a four-year-old lab who passed away from water intoxication last summer, we are re-naming the Dog Swim to Maggie’s Dog Swim, and adding water sports and safety information and demonstrations to the Expo. Additionally, dogs attending Maggie’s Dog Swim will receive a water-safe pet throw compliment of Maggie’s friends and family.
Pet Expo highlights:
- 2 Maggie’s Dog Swim Dates – Thursday night, September 7th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m, and Saturday, September 9th from noon to 4:00 p.m. (during the Pet Expo). Maggie’s Dog Swim will take place at Splash Cove Pool in Memorial Park. The cost for the Dog Swim is $10 for one day or $15 for both.
