Barktoberfest Doggie Social at Grand Boulevard
Dog Harmony is hosting the first annual Barktoberfest Doggie Social at Grand Boulevard on Thursday, Oct. 27 from 5-7pm. This fun filled event will take place in the courtyard area of the green between Tommy Bahamas & Cantina Laredo.
Barktoberfest will feature live music by Matt Lyons, brews from Grayton Beer Company, and yummy snacks from JC's Gourmet Somethin' Snappy all available for donations! Attendees will also have the chance to win A McCaskill and Co. white ceramic Chrono Watch and a $50 gift card to Silver Sands Premium Outlets. Costumes are not required but welcome... as long as you don't dress any of us as a "hot dog." Woof. All dogs must be on a leash and we kindly ask the no prong collars be used.
Dog-Harmony is a volunteer-ran non-profit organization. We're a group of passionate and determined problem-solving dog lovers who want to make a difference. The goal is to build healthy relationships between humans and dogs to improve the lives of both. The basis for these relationships is knowledge and the key is education, for all ages. By providing personalized training, education, and ongoing support we help owners and dogs grow together in adoptions that last a lifetime. Adoption isn't the end result, it's just the beginning.
Dog Harmony advocates selecting an appropriate dog through rescue organizations and animal shelters. Shelters can provide a wide range for selection, however, it's easy to react emotionally and select a dog that's not a match for an owner's lifestyle, family, or home. Sadly, many adopted dogs are returned to shelters and rescues due to the mismatching of dog and owner. Dog Harmony helps people avoid this with our matchmaking process. It can be a difficult process of choosing the right dog, we initially remove the emotional emphasis and hand-hold people through from start to finish so it's enjoyable, the way adoption is meant to be experienced for owner and dog.
Ultimately, our goal is to match the right home with the right dog.
