Maybe your pet is not agility show material, but that doesn’t mean your pet isn’t unique in some way or another. Some pets can perform amazing tricks like back flips, singing, dancing, etc. If your pet is talented, show off their skills at a contest where they can do a trick and get more of a treat than you would ever dream of.
A Stupid Pet Tricks contest will be held at John Pierson’s Toyota of Stuart, Florida on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 9 am to noon. Contestants will be narrowed down to 12 pets, which will then compete at the West Palm Beach Home and Garden Show on Oct. 17-19. The winner of the grand prize will receive a trip to New York City and tickets to the “Late Show with David Letterman.” Also the winning pet’s name will be announced at The Paws & Claws gala on Feb. 19, 2009.
Or maybe your pet doesn’t have to rely on tricks. They might have a fabulous style so they rely on their looks instead. If this is the case, take your pet to the Elmore County Humane Society’s annual Bark in the Park this Saturday at Fort Toulouse, Alabama. The pet contests start at 1:30 pm, and pets will have a chance to show off their fashion and beauty. Prizes will even be given to the “so ugly it’s cute dog.”
Entering your pets in these smaller scale contests can benefit both you and your pet. Not only does it keep your pet active and social, it gives them experience on how to behave around people and other animals. Plus, it’s a chance for you to show off your pet. As Halloween gets closer, there will be more opportunities to enter your pet in costume contests. Although your pet is not able to go trick or treating, it can do a trick and get a treat.
