Dog lovers get ready! Dogfest, presented by Best Friends Furever – the ultimate furry fun and games family experience – takes place Saturday, Oct. 15 from 11am-4pm on the grounds of the Baltimore Humane Society (BHS), located at 1601 Nicodemus Road in Reisterstown. Dogs will be able to play games with their people or watch as other pups partake in the fun. There will be plenty of activities for the pups, including Simon Says, 20-yard dash, bubble chase, paw painting and fun in the sand. There will be opportunities to try out an agility or lure course, and dogs present at the event can even qualify for the AKC Canine Good Citizenship Award. There will be doggy demos from The Department of Public Safety & Corrections Services K-9 Unit. The CDS Detection Dogs are always a big hit sniffing “contraband” on volunteer guests. Don't miss the contests and prizes for Best Costume, Best Kisser, Best Dancer, Best Owner/Pet Look-alike, Catch the Treat, Musical Sit and Best Pet Trick – all judged by our local celebrity panel.
Kids can enjoy pet-themed arts & crafts, face painting and a bounce house, while everyone can peruse the vendor marketplace and visit pet rescue groups with adoptable animals. Bring your appetite, as a variety of food and treats will be available for purchase during the event. New this year is Trunk or Treat for both kids and pets. Tickets for adults are $15 online and at the gate. Tickets for children (11 and under) are $7. A Family Pack (2 adult/2 children) tickets is $40. There is free parking on the BHS grounds. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 16. For more information on Dogfest, to buy tickets in advance or to sign up to be a vendor or volunteer, visit
