Fest offers dog-friendly sports, entertainment | Community Spirit
An event this weekend will draw dog lovers and their four-legged friends.
The Mounds Dog Fest will offer paws-on activities, contests, demos, a canine water performance, lure coursing, dogs bobbing for tennis balls and more.
About 110 area organizations will be on site at Angell Park in Sun Prairie for the festival from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. on Sunday for the 16th annual event.
New to the event this year is a dog training demo, an interactive sport which that combines basic obedience with an obstacle course.
Mounds representative Heather Sullivan said the event is fun for dog owners and gives them a destination to bring their pet.
"[There are] not always the outlets where people can get out and meet other dog owners and just have a great time," Sullivan said. "I just like to see the variety of dogs and the people in the community."
Organizers said there's no cost to park or attend and dogs are welcome. Dogs in heat and puppies under 6 months old should be kept home, however.
