Dog Show

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.

2014 Everyday Dog Show Categories

11:30am Best Costume

11:50am Best Bark

12:10pm Best Trick

1:15pm Best Body Part (ears, tail, coat, etc.)

1:35pm Best Lap Dog

1:50pm Best Couple – dogs and guardians who look alike after all these years! (This is not a costume contest!)

2:10pm Most Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show**

**The Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show category is all in good fun with the goal of raising the most money possible for the school. The winners of each of the main categories (costume, 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.
