We were blessed with a gorgeous Northwest summer day for WagFest this year and dogs and their people enjoyed games and contests, as well as good music and great food! Puppy Place was a huge hit with the kids who could all be puppies and run through an agility course, or in a sack race before getting their face painted or making a dog toy. It was a dog lovers dream, there were big dogs and small dogs…

Thanks to all of our generous WagFest sponsors, including Winslow Animal Clinic, Naturally 4 Paws, Paws & Fins Pet Shop, The Fluffy Ruff Dog Spa, Animal Emergency and Trauma Center, B.I. Barkery, Dr. Jane Pearson with Holistic Family Practice, Poulsbo Animal Clinic, The Salty Dog Wash and Superior Pet Foods.

Thanks to all of our amazing vendors!  Vendors Row was resplendent with exceptional merchandise for pets and their people, educational information, and specialty services for pets.

Special thanks to our wonderful WagFest Planning Committee – Joy Erickson, Kaitlin Hall, Kathy Holodnak, Gretchen Jannenga, Leah Kjormoe, and Annika Krol. And thanks to all of our marvelous  volunteers who helped create a fabulous dog event…we couldn’t have done it with you!
