Events for the Dogs in SLC

This weekend get your dogs out of the house and party!  There are so many dog related events going on throughout Salt Lake County.  Be sure to check out at least one and take your canine friend with you!

Click on the title of each event for prices, RSVP's and contact info.


Tonight, Sep 17th at 6:30pm - Sprague Library, Sugarhouse.  This one, you can't bring your dogs to, BUT you will be doing your dog a favor if you bring your questions and comments and show your support for off-leash dog areas by attending this open house forum with the Salt Lake City mayoral and city council candidates.  This is an opportunity for you to meet the candidates and find out just how dog friendly they are and how they would support the growing population of dog owners in creating more off-leash space for our pups to use!


Friday, Sep 18th at 7:00pm - Painter's Palette 4709 Daybreak Parkway #B, South Jordan. Participate in this fun, unique fundraiser for Hearts 4 Paws, a local animal rescue that helps saves hundreds of homeless dogs each year.  While you're helping the dogs, you'll also be learning to paint and will take home your very own completed work at the end of the night! 


Saturday Sep 19th, 10:00am - 11:15am - How to Use Essential Oils with Animals, 1209 W Dupont Ave, SLC.  Are you an animal lover? Do you have a beloved pet? Would it appeal to you to be more empowered to help your pet stay healthier and happier than ever with the help of therapeutic-grade essential oils?  Join Julie Behling-Hovdal at her home OR Via Periscope @juliebehlinghovdal this Saturday to learn how to use essential oils with animals!! They will focus on essential oil usage with dogs and cats and will also touch on using oils with larger animals such as horses and smaller animals such as rodents and birds.


Saturday, Sep 19th, 10:00am - 12noon - Bark in the Park, Mountain View Park, 1651 Ft. Union Drive.   Splash pad, contests, vendors, fly ball demonstration, and adoptable pets will all be part of the fun at Bark in the Park.  I don't know about you, but if there's one thing my dogs are good at, it's barking in the park, so come for a morning of uninhibited canine fun.  Be sure to meet the police dog that will be roaming around and maybe he will even show off some of his sweet skills!


Saturday Sep 19th, 5:00pm - 9:00pm - Ruff House 10th Annual Fundraiser, Sheraton Hotel 150 W 500 S.   Support the Utah Animal Advocacy Foundation and help animals in our community.  Your pup can get a psychic reading, or pose for a professional photo. Also, enjoy live music, hors d'oevuers, a puppy kissing booth, a dog fashion just gets crazier and crazier!  Come prepared to participate in the silent auction and enjoy the cash bar.


September 21st - Sep 26th 10:00am - 8:00pm - Dog Days in the Garden at Thanksgiving Point.  Celebrate National Dog Week at Thanksgiving Point, the only week of the year that dogs are allowed in the beautiful 55-acre Gardens.
