– A dog agility course demonstration
– A mini dog training class
– Silly Pet Tricks contests (with the audience voting who’s the best!)
– Information and samples from Emancipet, Lofty Dog, 2nd Street District, ALMI’s downtown city apartments,, Eagle Pack Holistic Select, the Austin Parks Foundation and the City of Austin Scoop the Poop program.
