Auburn-based Budu Racing takes over the timing of dog race events, employing chips in the dogs’ bibs that record the precise time they cross the start line and cross back over the finish line. And there’ll be an artist to make a portrait of your animal. The City expects a crowd of about 15,000. “So far we’ve already got 360 registered for the dog trot, and last year we had 354 total,” Pachciarz said.

Pachciarz, coordinator of Petpalooza. “These races bring together a variety of animals for a race. You get to see a duck racing a goat, and there’s no telling who will win.” Try a great food court with nine food vendors. In addition to its usual menagerie of howling and growling, barking and baying, neighing and braying beasts, Petpalooza introduces some new and exceedingly cool stuff this year. Take Issaquah-based Animal Encounters’ live, hands-on, interactive bug zoo. That’s right, here it is, the real McCoy, the thing you’ve always dreamed of but feared might pass you by – a chance to touch real, multi-legged, antennawaggling creepy crawlies and learn stuff you pined to know about them but perhaps were too shy to ask. New this year will be the ArtRageous Zone, offering four, hands-on art opportunities, from paw-print activities that allow owners to use Fluffy or Fido’s paws to make a picture, to experimenting with metal art to make a pet tag for your critter.

Warmer weather means more outdoor time with Fido. Whether you’re walking through the neighborhood, attending a community festival or visiting your local dog park, here are some tips to make your canine-accompanied outings more enjoyable. Teach your dog to walk beside (not in front) of you in crowded areas. When greeting people (with or without dogs) always have your dog sit beside you. Ask permission to pet someone else’s dog and request that others do the same before approaching your dog. This will make your dog feel more secure and show others that your
dog is under control. If you visit the dog park, practice basic obedience (controlled walking, sit stay and come) on leash, before (and after) you let your dog play. This will help your dog be more
responsive to you when it’s time to go home, or if you need to intervene when a play session gets a bit too frisky. Remember, dog parks are not appropriate for all canines. Be fair to your dog, and with others, if his personality is not appropriate for these types of play sessions. Some dogs may become fearful, while others may become overly assertive, making the dog park visit stressful for all concerned. A good dog park experience is one where all the canines, and owners, have a good time. If your dog needs help with manners and/or appropriate body language around other dogs, enroll him in a basic dog obedience class where he will learn these skills in a controlled environment.
