If you're a devout MorningFile listener, you may remember one of our guests on the show last year, David Vandersteen from FORT! David is a Resource Developer at the organization and spoke to us all about the Dogs 4 Youth show that goes on at the Peach King Centre in Grimsby. This year, we brought David back on MorningFile because the event is happening all over again!
Back for its third year, Dogs 4 Youth is a huge indoor dog-centric marketplace with tons of vendors from different companies that sell literally anything a dog could ever want. Some of these include custom dog leashes, collars, personalized dog treats, a day at the dog spa (...yes that's a thing) and much more. The event is great because it's not only fun, but it also aims to promote the positive impact that dog ownership can have amongst youth. It also provides opportunities for dogs to find homes and meet other dogs in the area. Although the event is 30 minutes outside of Hamilton, a ton of you checked it out last year and had a blast, so we figured we'd keep you up to date on what's going on with it this year. If you have a car and wanna spoil your puppy for a day, definitely schedule this one in your calendar. The show will be held on May 6th, 2017 and it's going to be bigger and better than ever! Expect live entertainment and of course FREE admission.
