TUCSON - It's 'Dogtoberfest for Handi-Dogs' coming up this weekend!
Dogs painting pictures, a radar gun clocking how fast your pooch runs, human/dog obstacle course, costume, best trick, human/dog look-alike and other contests, live music by an award-winning bluegrass band, raffles, vendors, a giant game of Simon Says, food and a beer garden are just some of the activities you will find at this year's event.
All dog lovers are invited to join in the fun with their well-mannered, leashed dog. In 2012 over 700 people attended with their dogs. Tickets are just $5 (dogs are free) - all proceeds benefit Handi-Dogs.
Dogtoberfest for Handi-Dogs will be held this Sunday, October 27, from 10 a.m. To 2:00 p.m. at St. Gregory School, 3231 N. Craycroft Road.
Dogtoberfest will raise much needed funds to help people with disabilities gain independence, dignity and self-esteem by helping them train their own dogs to be their service dogs.
People with hearing impairments, mobility challenges, mental health conditions, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, diabetes, autism, and other disabilities can all benefit from the help of service dogs trained at Handi-Dogs. To learn more about Handi-Dogs visit:
