The fun kicked off that afternoon with speed-dating rounds between various attendees.
Among others, I got to chat with the couple behind Dogs of Instagram, Ashley Paguyo and Ahmed El Shourbagy, and with Jackie Fuller, social media manager for Angels Among Us Pet Rescue.
Over the last five years, hundreds of dogs have been adopted at the event. When bringing your dog to Maryland Dog Fest, please use common sense!
Rescue, shelter, and adoption groups will be on hand in the Adoption Zone to assist individuals who are looking to add a new member to their family. If your dog gets nervous around large crowds or does not interact well with people or other dogs, is not social, please leave them home. ALL dog owners bringing dogs to Maryland Dog Fest will be asked to sign a liability waiver upon entrance to Maryland Dog Fest. If your dog should have an accident, clean up stations are located throughout the grounds.
Events include a dog and owner look-a-like contest, Dogs Got Talent competition, doggy fashion show, training seminars and a costume contest.
If you’re looking to add a new dog to your family, you can also visit with dozens of dogs who are available for adoption.
Thousands of dog lovers and their furry family members can celebrate everything canine during the two-day event.
You’ll find plenty of entertainment for your furry friends, as well as dozens of dog-related exhibitors.
