I think my expectations were to high for this event. Having never been to Old World Village, either, I don't think I knew it was going to be squashed in a little portion. Got there about 1pm. Bought raffle tickets and was told the raffle would take place at 2:15pm. It was so crowded my mom and I ate at a nearby German restaurant (where I could also get some vegetarian food). As we were sitting there we heard, around 1:30pm, raffle tickets being read. Myself and some other doggy parents who wanted to get away from the crowd were very upset by this. I know the moneys for a good cause, but that was very rude. If you're going to read raffle tickets off for the whole event, don't say there's going to be a time when it's happening. As for the Easter egg treat hunt, I agree, people were greedy. A guy grabbed a silver egg right out from under me and was digging around in the bushes like an idiot. I know you meant well, but I was very saddened by it. Too crowded. Makes me think twice.

Thanks so much to all the Paws that came out to join us this weekend at the DOGTV k-9 Spring Fling & Easter Egg Hunt and to Stephen, Brandi and Leo from DPOC that helped us put all this together. Our vendor partners were great, we were able to find 4 rescue dogs homes and Intelligent Agility had a great time with all the dogs! I have posted more photos on our DOGTV Facebook site at:
I hope you will follow us on Facebook and learn more about DOGTV, see all our great friends from all over the world and attend future DOGTV events.
Happy Spring everyone!

I saw the Easter Egg Hunt on Dogtv Facebook, so I came out. I have to say I never knew there were so many dog owners around who are as active with their dogs like me and this club exists. It was a great time. I wanted to thank dogtv for doing this. I found two eggs and I met some really nice people and their dogs. Must have been expensive to rent the festival hall and beer garden. Can't believe that it was free. My uncle had a birthday party there and I know how much that party cost his wife. So thanks! I can't wait for more fun stuff to do. Thanks again and we'll see you at something else soon I hope. Jake from Dogtv, he was so cute in his outfit. Woof! Woof!

Sad that people have to argue about all this....it was supposed to be fun for the dogs! I do have a suggestion. Rather than have a gold & silver egg, why not hide the prizes in normal colored eggs, so that no one will know which egg it is in. It was fun, a lot of work went into the planning of it. We didn't win anything, and that is OK. We had a few hours out with our dog & got to see friends & meet new people & dogs. Isn't THAT what it should be about?

It is such a shame when people don't treat other people with the respect that they deserve, unless their actions or words prove otherwise. And we as humans are teaching dogs how to behave?
Well, all I know is that I had a great time, even though I couldn't find the "registration" area where the organizers were supposed to be. I would like to continue our conversation about a possible site I've scoped out for a dog park in Orange. COULD YOU PLEASE GET BACK TO ME ABOUT THAT? Thanks.

was fun, but the egg hunt was no so great, they had eggs in groups so not everyone got treats for their dogs since it was a case of greed on a lot of peoples parts. this is supposed to be about the dogs and not how greedy the owners can be with the egg hunt. Not Steve or Brandy's fault but there needs to be rules on this next year to limit how many eggs each person gets so that all dogs get treats in the end.

To all of the folks, and their canine companion(s), who came out and supported the event, DogTV, DPOC, and all of the wonderful rescues and vendors in attendance: THANK YOU.
It was a grand time to be had by all who made it out on this nearly perfect weather of a day at Old World Village in Huntington Beach, CA.
Finally, a very special repeat shout-out to DogTV. Without their help, none of this would have been possible.

We had a great time. Everyone was so nice and dogs were awesome, so many cool breeds. This was a really fun event for my dogs. I hope next time we can do the agility course. Thanks for organizing this great dog event. We've attended several dog meet up events and as always, you guys really know how to throw a party!
