Many vendors and organizations will be at Dog Days of Dundee, including dog grooming services, pet sitters, invisible fencing businesses, pet day care centers, and pet suppliers. Police dogs will perform agility demonstrations throughout the day.
"There's new vendors this year bringing more exciting things to do at Dog Days," said Helen Shumate of West Dundee, director of marketing and communications for the Dundee Township Park District.
There will be many events for dogs to participate in, such as a doggy egg hunt, an off-leash dog play area and an adoptable pooch pageant.
Dundee Animal Hospital will offer pet microchipping, which can help lost pets find their rightful owners. There will be a $17.99 enrollment fee.
Pets can participate in contests to determine the best dog trick, the best doggy kiss and the fastest dogs in large and small breeds.
"Everyone always loves the contests," Shumate said.
Donations will be accepted to help animals in need at local shelters and rescue groups.
The park district expects about 400 visitors with their pets, Shumate said.
"It is such a fun event for the entire family and their pets," Shumate said.
