October is a busy month for dog-friendly events. Not just dog-friendly, but dog-centric! Next Saturday, the Nashville Humane Association is throwing the annual Dog Days Festival at Centennial Park. At 9 am, the day kicks off with Mutt Strut, an opportunity for your pup to show off his/her style and charm. From 10 am to 4 pm you and your dog will have the chance to check out new products, services, training classes, pet portraits and more! There are also activities for children and a great picnic area for families. Tickets are $5 and all proceeds benefit the Nashville Humane Association.
Be sure to stop by our booth! We will be there all day and love to have visitors! We may even have a treat or two!
After you visit the Dog Days Festival, head on over to Germantown for Nashville’s Oktoberfest. From 9 am to 6 pm you can get your fill of authentic German food, arts and crafts, music, and, of course, a pint of German beer! There will also be walking tours of the neighborhood’s historic churches and exhibits about the history of Germantown.
The following Saturday, October 17 is the rain date for the Pooch Plunge! Nashville Public Television is hosting this event at the Nashville Shores. Bring your dog and bear the cooler weather!
The fun doesn’t stop there. On Thursday, October 22 Nashville Paw and Loews Vanderbilt Hotel are hosting the final “Rex in the City” event. Barktoberfest will feature a costume contest (for you and your dog), music by Shotgun Scooter, and fabulous food and beer! For more info visit the event site.
Look forward to seeing everyone at the Dog Days Festival!
