Strut Your Mutt at the Annual Dog Show at Bellamy-Ferriday House


On Saturday, September 23rd, strut your mutt at the Bellamy-Ferriday House and Garden’s Annual Dog Show. This Fido-festival celebrates dogs of all shapes and sizes- from the well-pedigreed to the well-petted! Join in a variety of canine-related activities, demonstrations & visits from pet-friendly organizations.

Flaunt your shiny coat on the dog-walk with our Mutt-Strut costume contest, or Strike-a-Paws in the pet photo contest. Boast your moves in the best trick competition; make a run at gold in the BowWow Olympics course and compete for the top spots of King and Queen of the dog show. Be sure to bring your human and lead them in the Pet Look-Alike Parade! 

But wait! This event hasn’t completely gone to the dogs- kids are invited too! Kid-friendly crafts, music, and candid canine antics will entertain the whole pack! All this fun takes place from 12-4 pm. The Soroptimist will have food and treats available for purchase.
