The “All About Dogs Day” celebration will feature a Pack Walk* on the Arboretum’s Three-Mile Drive beginning at 10 a.m., and a Pet Expo in the Oswald Visitor Center. The Expo will feature “Meet the Breeds” and “Working Dog” demos showcasing dogs involved in K-9 units, bedbug detection, herding, animal therapy and more! Learn about the Arboretum’s new Animal-Assisted Interactions program. The following breed clubs will attend: St. Bernard, Pug, Great Dane, Boston Terrier, Australian Shelty, Labrador Retriever and Doberman Pinscher, among others. Doggie goodie bags included.

The preregistration fee is $20/$25 for each dog (includes two human companions). Advance registration is requested at www.arboretum.umn.edu/dogday.aspx. Walk-in registration is $30/$35. (Plus $5 of every fee goes toward the Nature-Based Therapy program at the Arboretum.) Questions? Contact Mary Carlson at 952-443-1425 ormkcarlso@umn.edu. This event is sponsored by ADOGO Pet Hotel.

The largest public garden in the Upper Midwest and a premier northern arboretum, it is part of the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences at the University of Minnesota and developed as a community and national resource for horticultural and environmental information, research, and public education.
