The petting zoo is a different kind of petting zoo. There are no barriers inside the enclosure, and all the animals run freely with the public. The zoo includes a wide variety of animals, such as wallabies, llamas and exotic goats. The AG-Ventureland includes goat and cow milking, corn and bean play boxes, pony saddling and more. Border Collie International and its performing canine team of rescued border collies will delight the audience. There will also be a CityDog Magazine’s Cover Dog Model Search, the Farmyard Follies Show, demonstrations from the Seattle FlyDogs and other attractions for kids and families.

Ways to help your dog become pawsitively social BY KATHY LANG Family Dog Training Center

Thinking of taking Fido along as you visit a community fair or festival? First consider your dog’s temperament. Not all dogs are comfortable in crowds. Those with fears or aggressive tendencies should be left at home. Work with a trainer to desensitize these canines until they are comfortable in chaotic environments. Even the most reliable dogs need careful management. Here’s your checklist for success: Outfit your dog with a sturdy, non-retractable leash attached to a wellfitting collar or harness with current ID, license and rabies tags. Bring your own water, a collapsible water bowl, plenty of treats and poop bags. Plan your dog’s potty breaks and take him away from the action to do his business. Keep your dog close and under control at all times. Dogs that are allowed to pull or lead their owners through crowds are at greater risk of getting stepped on or bumped by a stroller. Some adults and children are afraid of dogs; they will be more comfortable if your dog is under control. As you talk to vendors,

RACHEL CIAMPI, Auburn Reporter

stroll through booths, or stop to watch the entertainment, keep your dog at your side. Have him sit so he doesn’t jump up. Reward him with treats. When folks admire your well-mannered pet, have Fido sit for greeting. Take a moment to teach children the proper way to greet a dog: wait for the dog to sit; extend a hand for sniffing, and if the dog is friendly, lightly stroke its shoulder or side. Never pet a strange dog on top of the head, and always be calm. Be your dog’s advocate. If you aren’t comfortable

PET PROS’ ‘UNLEASHED’ PET CONTEST CATEGORIES Sign up between 10 and 11:30 a.m. on May 21 at the event information booth. Each category is limited to 20 entries. 1. Best Pooch Smooch: Pucker up. Show us how your dog kisses. 2. Best Voice: This should ‘speak’ for itself. The judges will be looking for that special howl, bark or musical number. 3. Best Pet/Owner Look-A-Like: Do you and your pet look similar?

with certain people, nicely decline their request to interact with your dog. Never allow your dog to visit or sniff noses with another dog in this type of environment. You don’t know if the other dog is healthy or has good dog skills; the last thing you want is a dog fight, or a sick dog. Pay attention to the weather and ground temperature. The heat of the sun can make pavements too hot for dog paws. If it’s warm, give your dog frequent water breaks in the shade.

4. Smallest Dog: If your pooch can fit in a handbag, you may have this contest in the bag. 5. Best Dressed Pet: Here’s your chance for your pet to “strut the runway” in their favorite outfit. Be creative and have fun. 6. Best Pet Trick (adults, 18 years and older): What can your pet do? Here’s your opportunity to show off with your pet. 7. Best Pet Trick (children, 17 years and under): Here’s a chance for you and your pet to shine.
