CVM Dog Olympics 2016


The annual Dog Olympics is a great family day and provides an excellent opportunity to further socialize well behaved dogs as well as an opportunity for a family considering adding a pet to the home to observe all breeds of dogs and talk with their owners and representatives of various rescue groups. This is a student run event offered by the Companion Animal Wellness Club.

Admission fee for owner and dog is $3. Entry fee for each event for your competing canine athletes is $2. Children 5 and under receive free admission. All proceeds support the rescue groups in attendance.

Special thanks to our Sponsors of the 26th Annual Dog Olympics
