Dogapawlooza ’17

Saturday, August 5th

Cowlitz County Fairgrounds

The 10th annual Dogapawlooza will be Saturday, August 5th at the Cowlitz County Fairgrounds (1900 7th Ave.) in Longview, WA. Dogapawlooza is a benefit for the Humane Society of Cowlitz County.

Dogapawlooza 2017 will be the most fun dog party you’ve ever seen. Whether you bring your dog or don’t. Whether you enter your dog in anything or don’t. It’s just too much fun to miss!

Check out the costume contest & fashion show. If your dog has style, maybe it should be a Dogapawlooza “Project Runway” dog.

Lure Coursing has been a big hit. We sometimes have a dozen dogs lined up waiting for their turn. Watch dogs blaze around a course trying to catch a simple plastic bag tied to a rope on a motorized pulley. It’s the thrill of the chase! Try it with your own dog. The lure machine can run at different speeds to fit whatever kind of dog you have. It’s $3 for one run, or $5 for two.

Attendance is free. Parking is free. There’s a $5 fee to enter the Wiener Dog Races. Any donations to the Humane Society of Cowlitz County are encouraged and more than welcome.

In fact the RelyLocal Trolley will be there, and we’re having a “Fill the Trolley” drive for food, toys, blankets, towels, or anything else for the Humane Society. Please come, have some fun, and support the Humane Society.

Vendor booths are still available. A 10’ x 10’ space costs $50.

Here’s some of the other activities at Dogapalooza:
