Dogfest 2023

$7 – $15

Dogfest Returns to The Baltimore Humane Society

Get ready for the most paw-some event of the year – Dogfest, presented by Best Friends Fur Ever!  A howling good time for individuals, families, and their furry canine best friends. Mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 14, from 11 am to 4 pm and join us at the Baltimore Humane Society in Reisterstown, Maryland.

Prepare yourself and your furry friends for an action-packed day! Pups and their people will have a blast with thrilling games and activities like Simon Says, a speedy 20-yard dash, bubble chase, paw painting, and endless playtime in the sand pit! Not only that, but your dogs can try out an incredible agility course and even earn the prestigious AKC Canine Good Citizenship Award – talk about impressive! That’s not all – get ready to be amazed by incredible doggy demos by The Department of Public Safety & Corrections Services K-9 Unit.

Dogfest sponsored by Collector Car GuideHold onto your leashes, because we’ve got some fantastic contests and prizes for your beloved pooches. They can compete for the titles of Best Costume, Best Kisser, Best Dancer, Best Owner/Pet Look-alike, Catch the Treat, Musical Sit, and Best Pet Trick, all judged by a panel of local celebrities. But wait, there’s more! The kids will be set up for a great time with pet-themed arts & crafts, face painting, and a bouncy house – fun for the whole family!

Don’t forget to explore the vendor marketplace and meet some adorable adoptable animals at the pet rescue groups’ booths – you might just find your new furry family member! And of course, all that excitement can work up an appetite. There will be a wide variety of delicious food and treats available for purchase throughout the event, satisfying both two-legged and four-legged appetites.

Parking is free at BHS, and in case of rain, we’ve got you covered with a rain date on Sunday, October 15.
