While dogs weren't allowed at the first Olympic games in Greece, dogs of all types are welcome at the 2013 Dog Bowl in Frankenmuth during Memorial Weekend.
Canine athletes from across the nation will participate in a variety of events May 25 and 26, 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Frankenmuth River Place Shops.
The sporting and fun activities are open to champion canines and couch potatoes alike, as well as their human companions. Spectators are invited at this lively, fun-filled, which hosts 40 exhibitors offering pet-related products and kid-friendly games.
"We encourage families to bring their pets and create some great memories," says Michael Zehnder, Dog Bowl Event Chairman. "A few of the events feature top-caliber dogs competing for national titles. With or without a dog, you'll have a great time enjoying these canine Olympics."
Whether it's watching DockDogs belly flop in a Diving Competition, the Rock-N-Roll K-9's or Silly Pet Tricks, there's something to enjoy for everyone in the family.
Here are a few highlights:
Other activities include a doggie fashion show, dog breeds of the world show, K-9 police dog demonstrations, and crowning of the Dog Bowl King and Queen.
Additionally, over 30 rescue organizations from across Michigan will be onsite with adoption dogs looking for forever homes. For more information, call 1-800-600-0105.
