To Do Saturday: Central Park Goes to the Dogs

central park dogsCentral Park Paws, a program of the Central Park Conservancy, is back with its 11th annual celebration of all things doggie-style called My Dog Loves Central Park. Features include best-in-park dog events, in which dogs and owners “can show off their responsible park behavior” and hope to win bragging rights, training tips from Parvene Farhoody of Behavior Matters Inc., micro-chipping with the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, a children’s corner with therapy teams from Pet Partners, games, an agility course and more. Bring your leashed dog, and prepare to make new friends, animal and human alike.
