Love dogs? Come to Bark Park at the L.A. County Fair. It’s a dog’s life but humans are welcome, too. The Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show features rescue dogs that have learned some amazing tricks. The nation’s best Frisbee-catching dogs race nose to nose in the famous “Extreme Canines Triathlon” and the Olympic high-jump challenge. Joining this year’s entertainment line-up, Splash Dogs, another group of talented rescue hounds, will have you howling with their antics. Bark Park is open daily during the Fair.
Each weekend of the Fair, Bark Park features a dog rescue organization or animal shelter sponsored by West Coast Pet Expo with a variety of four-legged friends looking for good homes. Stop by and learn about the work of these worthwhile organizations.
There are adoption opportunities, too. Welcoming a rescue dog into your family is a feel-good opportunity with a lifetime of rewards. Bark Park is open daily during the Fair.
