Dog Events in Georgia

When you want to really spoil your dog, or just meet other dog owners in Georgia 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 in Georgia 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.

The walk typically lasts for one hour with some additional time set aside for a quick briefing prior to walk, some photos, etc. You must sign up if you would like to walk one of their dogs, but if you're just walking your Fido, meet them at the cemetery.
