Top Dog Events Worldwide

When you want to really spoil your dog, or just meet other dog owners who are as crazy about their pets as you, there’s no better place to bring Fido than a dog event. Attend any of the dog shows, agility competitions, costume parades, festivals or fundraisers on our Dog Events Calendar and you’ll meet hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dog lovers. And since 70% of the events listed benefit humane societies, attending one is a great way to help homeless pets too.

#DogBowlChallenge A fun way for people and pet dogs to #LickCancer that both people (especially kids) and pups develop by raising awareness and funds for comparative research. The #DogBowlChallenge is similar to others that have gone viral on social media, but this involves people and pet dogs pledging support by participating and donating. Canines-N-Kids is asking for people to compete with their furry friend by simultaneously slurping whipped cream out of a bowl (preferably a dog bowl). To make it fair, the human must do it with either hands behind their back or with all four on the floor side by side with their pup. Participants can either start the challenge in their social media circle or accept the challenge from others. Participants then need to post the video to Facebook, Instagram (tag @CaninesnKids) and Twitter (@CNKFoundation) and challenge three friends. See Details
