Wag Fest a day for pets

By MICHELLE PERRY State Journal Staff Writer Published:

Frankfort pets finally have a day of their own. The first Wag Fest will be 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Saturday at Paw-N-Order K-9 Farm Camp, 1150 Bark Branch Road (Route 1665).

"They can socialize their animals and bring the kids out for a fun day in the sun," said Liz Norris, owner of Paw-N-Order and organizer of the event. "Or maybe find a pet to adopt."

Events include a Tricks are for Kids demonstration at 10:30 a.m., Canine Swim Fest at noon, doggie relays at 12:30 p.m. and canine water agility face-off at 2 p.m. At 4 p.m., owners and their dogs can compete in the team relay races and at 5 p.m., Bullitt County Search Dogs will put on a demonstration.

Dances with Dogs will be at 6 p.m. followed by another Tricks are for Kids demonstration at 6:45 p.m. Wag Fest contest winners will be announced at 7 p.m. and a discussion on showing pets will be held at 8 p.m. Other activities include a mock dog show at 8:30 p.m., an owner/pet look alike contest and the cutest kid and dog contest, both scheduled before noon.

There will also be local crafters set up all day displaying animal-related items such as jewelry, portraits and pottery. Food and drinks will also be available for purchase.
