What does the Dog Days of Scugog mean to our past participants?

  • “It’s a favourite venue for all of our competitors. The Museum is a wonderful host, with plenty of free parking, lots of grassy areas for the dogs as well as cool vendors for everyone to visit. The two day event is always jam packed full of fun contests, competitions and demos as well as great shopping!” – Erin Braybrook, President, Ontario Dock Dogs
  • “I feel that Dog Day of Scugog is a “great hands on” weekend. Dogs and their owners can enjoy and learn about different dog events, training and organizations that deal with dogs. Something for everyone a great family day for dog lovers” – Joan Reid, Canadian Association of Rally Obedience.
  • “Dog Days of Scugog is one of Ontario’s only festivals that truly celebrates our lives with our canine companions in all its many facets. From humorous competitions such as “I look like my dog” to serious disc and dog diving competitions to dog fashion shows, this festival is just plain fun for you and your dog” – Paula Bund, member of the Dog Days Organizing Committee and owner of two large Golden Doodles.
  • It has been a fantastic vehicle for us to let people know what St. John’s Therapy Dogs do in this community. We also benefit by getting many new volunteers. The booth attracts many dog lovers who enjoy chatting about their canine partners.” – Sylvia Stringer, St. John’s Therapy Dogs.
