Pet Lovers Enjoy Paws in the Park -- Los Angeles Sat. Sept 15
Encino (Los Angeles), CA -- Presented by the Southern California Responsible Pet Owners Coalition, “Paws in the Park” featured multiple performances in dog agility, obedience, rally, and canine freestyle (dancing), as well as working dog demonstrations, law enforcement dogs, and carting dogs. Dog lovers were able to train and try agility, obedience and rally. The event was held in conjunction with the American Kennel Club's Official Responsible Dog Ownership Day nationwide.
Laddie, the 9th generation of the Weatherwax Lassie dogs, and owner Bob Weatherwax judged the contests and awarded prizes for pet/owner look alike, longest ears, “waggiest” tail, and “stupid” pet tricks. Microchipping by Warner Center Pet Clinic was available on site for cats and dogs.
Cat lovers enjoyed a breeds showcase, as well as information about the Assistance Program, nutrition and grooming.

Pet owners observed demonstrations and collected tips and information about choosing the right pet for their family, training, grooming, kids and dogs together, raw feeding and holistic care, pet disaster preparedness, and animal welfare vs. animal rights.
In addition, a large raffle featured baskets brimming with pet goodies, some for dogs and some for cats.
Pet photographers were on hand to preserve the memories, as were a voter registration table, pet food samples, toys, supplies and tools.
