Load up your furry family member and join us for a day of PLAY!
PlayingDog is a "paws-on" canine enrichment event brought to you by RunningDog!

Our canine attendees will be challenged at our PlayingDog hub to find the treat at SeekingDog, find their way out at AmazingDog, and solve the puzzle at SpinningDog! After that, they can be pampered at our GlamorDog spa and relax with a Puppucinno at our StarBARKS cafe.
We will even have our very own artists at ArtDog immortalizing your furry family member!

Our PhotoDog area will be filled with photo op booths, props and framings to help you find your perfect selfie or portrait!

Our human attendees will enjoy live music, food trucks and vendors selling their wares!

We are also giving Akron the chance to show off their canine companion during waves of competition that will include a talent show, and a peanut butter eating contest.

We are excited to announce that we will be showcasing adoptable dogs from several area rescues. Let's get some furballs adopted!

More details to follow on our PlayingDog; Come, Stay, Play timeline!
