WHAT’S NEW for WALK-n-WAG Participants?:
(1) The American Kennel Club, will be offering discounted enrollments in its new AKC Canine Partners program for mixed-breed dogs and other dogs ineligible for AKC registration. You may enroll your dog for $25 ($10 off the regular price) AND AKC donates $10 of each enrollment to the American Cancer Society. Every one who enrolls at the Walk n Wag also receives a free t-shirt and bandana. Enrollment gives your dog eligibility to compete in AKC events, lifetime enrollment in the AKC CAR lost and found recovery service, a subscription to AKC Family Dog magazine and more!

(2) The American Kennel Club will offer FREE Canine Good Citizen testing during the event. This 10-step program tests your dog’s basic manners and obedience skills. Dogs that pass receive a beautiful frameable certificate from the AKC and also will receive a bandana. It is free to take the test and, if your dog passes, there is a fee of $8 to cover the cost of printing and shipping the certificate. The CGC test is the prerequisite for most therapy dog programs

(3) Triangle Pet Supply will give out gift bags, free dog food samples, and a treat drawing at their table.

(4) Contest prizes will be courtesy of American Kennel Club (i.e. AKC Leashes
AKC Dog Waste Bag Holder with Leash Clip, AKC stuffed dog toys)

(5) Get an introduction to the FUN sport of RALLY OBEDIENCE. The American Kennel Club will provide demonstrations of this new fun sport in which dogs go station to station, performing the obedience exercise shown on the sign at each station. It’s like the canine version of Simon Sez!
