One such event is the annual Fall Festival in Huntington, Long Island, New York.
It's held at a small local park that is normally not welcoming to dogs at all but during the festival, families come out in droves with both their kids and the family dog! We try never to miss this opportunity to walk around the park with our dogs, meeting other pet parents and dogs.
|Fortunately, I was not abducted by any alien beings at the festival, LOL!|
|The Park has a lovely pond that ducks, turtles, and a pair of swans call home.|
|Phoebe posed for a photo at the FIOS booth, they decorated so nicely!|
Another great thing about dog friendly places and events is the Socialization opportunity. It's important to keep your dog well socialized with both people and other dogs throughout his life. Of course, you don't want to take an un-socialized or aggressive/dominant canine to a pet friendly event to "socialize him", socializing a puppy or dog is not a One and Done activity!
|Phoebe met this sweet little girl as we walked through the festival|
|Making friends with a sweet little Pittie at the Fall festival|
|Smoochin' with a handsome pup Phoebe met along the walking path|
|Uh-oh, Icy will be so jealous that Phoebe is getting cozy with a handsome Husky!|
It was a veritable DOG PAWTY at the Huntington Fall Festival! All the dogs we met were super well behaved and friendly, and having a blast making lots of new friends!
|It's a Doggie Huddle!|
|Whew! After all that fun and socializing, I need a bit of ME time.|
