Join us for competitions, demonstrations, prizes, food, raffles – and The Strut!

Bring your four-legged friends or just come to “dog watch,” as we’ll have contests, demos, and – of course – The Strut!  This year we will be showcasing the talented Skylar Landis of Belle Rose Kennels and her dog, Auggie, for agility and training demos.  Vendors will be on hand with BBQ, ice cream, wine, and clothing/apparel.

The Mutt Strut and it’s 5K Run/Walk raises awareness and funds for animals who are homeless and neglected.  It supports The Humane Society of Kent County’s efforts to continue providing for the welfare of homeless animals, providing a voice through advocacy and education, and giving a second chance to both humans and animals.
