I love my dogs. In fact, I love most dogs. Many dog owners consider their pooch an important part of the family. So, I get really excited about special programs in VA State Parks that include dogs.
A costume category is included in the Grayson Highlands Dog Show.
On August 13, 2011,Fourth Annual Grayson Highlands Dog Show.The event will be held at the park amphitheater from 1:00p.m – 3:00p.m.
Categories will include fetching, dress-up, catching, obedience and free-time for showing special talents. There's also an obstacle course. Once awards are given, there will be a pooch parade through the campground. Dogs must be leashed, well-mannered and able to get along with other dogs and people. The fee is $5 per dog.
One participant bribes her dog to finish the obstacle course.
Grayson Highlands State Park is located in Mouth of Wilson, VA. It is known for its beautiful vistas and cool temperatures. Whether, you need a weekend away or a day trip, this is the perfect place for the entire family, four-legged family members included.
