Thank you to Lower Cape TV for grabbing some great highlights at this years Paw Palooza! Incase you missed it, check out this video to see what was happening at Paw Palooza 2018. See you in 2020!
One of Yarmouth’s most popular events, now in its third year, is Agway of Cape Cod’s Paw Palooza, the Cape’s largest dog festival, this year from July 14-15. This extravaganza benefits the Cape’s two largest animal shelters, the MSPCA in Centerville and the Animal Rescue League’s Brewster shelter. The focus is on helping animals — and having fun — as in a radar run to see how fast your dog is (bragging strongly encouraged), puppy facials for dogs that love to be pampered and the extremely popular Dock Dogs jumping competition, a great event to enter your dog or to just cheer on the jumpers. While some of the dock dogs are master jumpers, novice dogs are welcome to compete.
The massive festival also includes a puppy pool pavilion; a “Doggie University” tent; a caricature artist; a lure course; an interactive agility course; a puppy spa zone with doggie massages; a raffle; a vendor fair with nearly 100 local and national companies; a doggie kissing booth; “Pupcasso” art-making for pups; face painting; a Kids Zone; food trucks; and tons of unique activities for dogs and their families. Admission is $7 (no charge for kids 12 and under). Oh, howl yeah.
It all takes place at Dennis Yarmouth High School (210 Station Ave., South Yarmouth) on July 14 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and July 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The event is totally family friendly. Learn more at pawpaloozacapecod.com.
Canines in the Clouds Stunt Dogs is joining us this year at Paw Palooza and we can’t wait. A team of rescue dogs who perform agility tricks, frisbee catching, intense stunts, and more, are known as Canines in the Clouds. They travel across the country to teach people the importance of animal welfare as well as entertain us with the tricks they have learned.
Hydro, rescue pup turned celebrity and more furry pals have come together by trainer Jonathan Offi. Offi has three main goals in mind with every performance he has with his team of pups, entertain, educate, and inspire.With a passion to educate humans to be the voice of all pets, “We believe Incredible Dogs are Well Behaved Pets and Well Behaved Pets are less likely to END UP IN SHELTERS!” and we couldn’t agree more. With some of the most intense canines in the world, they’ve been featured on Animal Planet, Late Night with David Letterman, ESPN and more!
Canines in the Clouds will perform multiple times on both Saturday and Sunday in the Paw Palooza Show Ring. Keep an eye out for their schedule on our homepage.
