Dog Events in Maryland

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

Pet Friendly 2nd Sunday Hikes
2nd Sunday Hikes Grab your friends and the pups, too, and take a hike in the great wide open! Join the fun of an hour guided hike led by Baltimore Humane Society's veterinarian, Dr. Mary Zink. Dress appropriately and wear hiking boots or sturdy foot gear! These hikes can be strenuous. You may get wet, and you probably will get dirty, but time spent with other dog-lovers is worth it! If you are an approved dog walker with BHS, you can opt to take a shelter dog on this hike. See Details
