2014 Dog Show
We are thrilled to welcome back to DogFest emcee Daniel Handler (author and official representative of Lemony Snicket). Mr. Handler has the honor and privilege of guiding our amazing team of celebrity judges through DogFest obedience school.
We are still preparing the details for the 2014 Dog Show but until we get that finalized, please have a look at the 2013 Dog Show, which will likely have much in common with this year’s edition.

**It’s our first year with the Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show category, and brace yourself, because it really is corrupt, but it’s all in good fun with the goal of raising the most money possible for the school. The winners of each of the main categories (ears, bark, trick, etc.) and anyone who wants to buy their way in for $50 will be entered in the final contest of the day, the Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show contest. The audience will then vote for their favorite dog by putting donations into different buckets for the different dogs. At the end, the dog with the most donations will be crowned Best-In-Show. Simple, silly, and will hopefully raise a bunch of money for the kids.
