Paws in the Park - Sept. 12th 11:30-4pm

The Austin Dog Alliance is holding its second annual Paws in the Park event on September 12th from 11:30am to 4:00pm at the Cedar Park Regional Medical Center. We'd like for your club to do a demonstration at our event this year. We hope to introduce a variety of different dog sports to dog owners and dog lovers in our community.
Paws in the Park is a FREE event featuring five (5) circus rings of activities designed for every member of the family:
(1) The Dog Olympics Ring inspires the personal best of our canine attendees in hurdle jumping, speed races, hot dog eating, relay races, and a variety of fun games.
(2) The Training Ring is where local trainers will present 20-minute training sessions throughout the event.
(3) The red ring is the Childrens Ring where kids will be able to earn Girl Scout badges, participate in face painting, the jumpy jump, and crafts designed for younger attendees.
(4) Dog Sports and Fun is the theme for the ring where attendees can see demonstrations of Agility, Fly Ball, Carting, Frisbee, and even Dog Dancing.
(5) Adopt-a-Dog Ring, rescue groups and shelters will showcase dogs available for adoption.
In addition to the circus rings of activities, over 50 rescue groups and dog-related vendors will be in attendance. I have attached a flyer with additional information about doing a demonstrtion at Paws in the Park. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at
Hope you can join in the fun!
