The Annual Dover Dog Howloween is back this year

Get your costumes ready and not just yours, but one for your pup as well.  The SitStaySmile Pet Photography and NH Dog Walking Club are proud to announce the special event will be held at the Rotary Arts Pavilion at Henry Law Park in downtown Dover from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday, October 9, and I can’t wait to see it.

Join me for the first big Halloween event of the season and make sure you look for me and say hi!

Dogs Love Halloween too

Dogs love Halloween too and it is so fun to dress your pet up in costume.  There will be many pups on parade in costume to see in addition to some demonstrations by K-9s Training Facility, Canine Strong, and Animal Communication Collective.

What would a dog Halloween event be without a costume contest?  Could you be the lucky winner?  There will be costume winners and raffle prizes.  There will also be a Best in Show Announcement at 3:45 pm.

Registration Details

Registration starts at 10:45 am near the flagpole.  Just be sure to remember a few rules to make the day fun for you and your pup.  Family-friendly costumes, there will be a lot of kids there.  Make sure you keep your dog on a leash no more than 6 feet long.  Make sure your pup is at least 4 months old, puppies have weak immune systems and for their health and safety, they should be at least 4 months before hanging out with a large crowd of cool pups.

Make sure you have poop bags, you will be expected to clean up after your darling doggie.

This is going to be a fun day and I have been looking forward to it for some time.  Make sure you ask for me, Chio, and say hi!  Let the dog costume party begin! If you need more info click here.
