Dog Show

2017 Dog Show

We are thrilled to welcome back to DogFest emcee Daniel Handler (author and official representative of Lemony Snicket). Mr. Handler again has the honor and privilege of guiding our amazing team of celebrity judges through DogFest obedience school! Closer to the event date you will be able to register for the dog show online. Until that time, have a look at the details for this year’s dog show.

2017 Everyday Dog Show Categories

12:00pm Best Costume—Judges vote on dog with best costume; extra points for originality.

12:20pm Best Tail—Long, short, skinny or wide, let’s see who’s tail comes out on top!

12:50pm Best Trick—Dogs have 30 seconds to show off their best trick(s). Props encouraged.

1:10pm HALF TIME SHOW!—Special Performances TBD

1:40pm Best Coat—Whose coast is the most luxurious?

2:00pm Best Mutt—A little of this and a little of that, sugar and spice makes everything nice. Whose best friend is made up of the best mix?

2:20pm Best Ears—Big or little, crooked or straight, hear hear for best ears!

2:40pm Best Lap Dog—Judges are looking for dogs that are great on your lap and the velvet throne.

3:00pm Most Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show**

**Brace yourself – 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 this final contest of the day. The audience bribes the judges (by throwing lots of money in buckets being passed around) to keep working and decide which dog will be crowned Best-In-Show.

We are still finalizing the celebrity judges panel for 2017, but for now have a look at the luminaries that graced the judges’ table last year.
