About Dog Days
Event aims to provide the greater Central Texas community with a fun family day to enjoy a variety of activities, learn from experts, and connect with other dog lovers.
Now in its sixth year, the Dog Days Canine Event has something for everyone. Head to Hewitt Park on Saturday and check out the weenie dog races, get a Glam Fur photo with your pet, shop local vendors and take in the sights. New to the event this year will be a large petting zoo with over 70 baby and adult animals (donations appreciated) as well as Circus Chickendog from Austin! Circus Chickendog is known for his tricks, juggling, unicycling, balancing acts and more, and has made appearances on David Letterman and The Animal Planet.
When visiting Dog Days, you can even go home with a new furry friend if you’re interested in adopting as pet rescue groups, pet adoption groups and pet care information will all be available. If you’d like to support local shelters, the library will be collecting donations of dry dog food. We hope to see you – and your pets – at the Dog Days Canine Event!
