The 2019 Dog Festival and Show at the Planting Fields Arboretum is an opportunity to enjoy a 3-day weekend of family friendly activities in a beautiful setting. In addition to watching hundreds of dogs compete in a variety of dog sports, visitors and their dogs can get in on the action at AKC’s My Dog Can Do That, where participants can try out agility and obstacle courses or test their water skills at Dock Diving in a 25,000-gallon tank!

You can also do some shopping for the perfect present for your dog or a dog lover in your life, peruse a flea market, and join a “Nautical Long Island” themed dog costume contest on Sunday. With raffles and food for sale, face painting for the kids, and canine activities, this event is great for the whole family! Bring a lawn chair and your dog and be ready to have some fun!

The Arboretum itself is lovely in the spring and well worth the visit! Check out the Planting Fields website for more information about this Long Island treasure! The $20.00 admission fee per car includes the $8.00 admission to the Arboretum.

Up to 65% of domestic violence victims delay or cannot escape their abusers because they are concerned about what will happen to their pets when they leave. TD Bank’s Paws for a Cause will raise awareness and funds to support L.I. Against Domestic Violence’s life-saving services. They are working to reduce this statistic by partnering with local animal organizations to ensure that pets have a safe place to go when a victim of domestic violence enters their shelter or goes to stay with a family member or friend where a pet cannot be accommodated.

Join them for a fun and fur-filled afternoon with performers, vendors and decked out pups as they strut their stuff on the runway! Register your pup and he/she can participate in the fashion show as well! There will also be an adoption meet & greet hosted by the Islip Animal Shelter.  Only non-aggressive pets that are registered in the fashion show will be permitted to attend this event.

Ticket prices
$30 Dog Fashion Show Registration & One Owner
$15 General Event Admission Per Person
$10 Children under 10 Years Old
