Go anywhere in this country or even the Outer Banks and you will see people love their dogs (cats are included somewhere in there as well:)). So why not celebrate your favorite canine by going to Woofstock

Outer Banks Dog Festival

The name Woofstock sounds like the way Scooby Doo would pronounce Woodstock. Woofstock offers a day of frolicking and fun for the family dog including:

• Pet exhibitors
• Family fun
• Canine Contests and prizes
• Music
• Dog Photographer
• Food (for the people)
• Dog Art and Dog art supplies
• Best bark contest (bring ear plugs)
• Elizabethan era dog costume contest
• Most “Woofstock” pooch ( I am picturing a big fluffy sheepdog with dreads winning this but who knows)
• Owner look alike contest
• Canine fun drinks(like virgin daiquiris)
• Paw Readings (honestly I am not making this up—how deep is a dogs paw reading going to be anyway)
• Pet Adoption Information
• Puppie kissing booth (adorable but…hard pass)
• Ecofriendly dog toy samples
• Dog Movies
• Cat toys( really…please don’t torture your cat by bringing them)
• Dog micro chip information and services

And best of all…the dogs’ get free admission. Their human companions don’t. But who doesn’t want to spend a fun afternoon with their pet. I bet a lot of people would do this every week if it was offered.

What about doggie etiquette?

By Doggy etiquette I am referring to some tips for caring for your dog while they are at an outdoor dog festival.

• Dont lose track of your pet. There will be dogs everywhere. Make sure he or she is leashed and at your side

• Bring doggie bags for cleanup.

• Bring lots of water for Fido

• Get ready for a distracted dog. Food smells, lots of people and dogs mean their attention span will be on overdrive
