Pet and parent look-a-like
Rent-A-Dog: Rent-a-Dog is one of Doggie Dash's most popular attractions! Adoptable canine residents from Animal Humane will be in attendance, and you can rent a furry friend to dash or dawdle with you, or to simply enjoy the event by your side. Renting a dog costs only $10! You'll be doing a good deed by giving a homeless dog a memorable day and we're sure you'll both have a wonderful time. Stop by, you might just meet your perfect pet!
Off-Leash Dog Park: Drop your dog off for some fun canine time while you visit the Barketplace and peruse the vendors, listen to music and grab a bite to eat.
