Pawlooza is the most whacky, crazy, dog-friendly festival that you've seen!

Take your dog dock diving, go swimming in the Pawlooza pond, test your dog's agility, run the lure course, go offleash in the FunZone, watch agility demonstrations, visit our VIP lounge... shop from 175 vendors, get great deals by bidding on silent auction items, and load up on free samples. We've packed as much fun into one day as possible... there isn't a better place to spoil your dog!

10:30 AM | "Stop Talking - Start Training" Demo (Main Stage)

We all need a way in which to communicate with our pets. However, there are times when good behaviour should be a given. Let’s face it, our dogs can hear the opening of a treat bag when two floors away and sleeping. So why is it that we are often barking commands at them over and over for the same things? Wouldn’t it be better if they just did the right thing?

Your dog can if you teach them to obey without commands.  Teach them to obey the situation so you can stop repeating yourself and enjoy a well mannered pet.
