The Prescott Dog Magazine

From The Pack Leader

Hello to All! Happy 2017!

2017 is going to be a busy year at Prescott Dog. We’ll be adding a few additional writers, two new events, see information below, and we have increased our circulation and added new distribution locations, to better serve you, our readers. You can find out more about these locations or read the magazine anytime at

Along with the popular WOOFstock and DOGtoberfest celebrations and adopt-a-thons; Prescott Dog Magazine will be hosting two additional events in 2017. Mark your calendars for these Prescott Dog Events:

KITTY-Palooza – Saturday, March 11th,11:00a - 3:00p. Join us for this first ever. Just like WOOFstock and DOGtoberfest there will be plenty of felines for adoption, contests and vendors catering to the feline crowd. KITTY-Palooza will take place within the indoor campground at Little Dealer/Little Prices in Prescott Valley. Our sincere thanks to Little Dealer/Little Prices for their hospitality. More details on the event on page 13 or at our website.

Dog Days at Prescott Valley Days – Saturday, April 29th, 10:00a - 4:00p, Prescott Valley Event Center. Everyone knows there’s a lot of things you can do with your dog; Obedience, Agility, Flyball, and Freestyle are but a few. Have you ever wondered what your furry friend would be good at? April 29th come find out. The Brittney Rescue of Arizona will be setting up their coursing arena for any dog to come try out. There will also be demonstrations for Herding, Agility, Obedience, Coursing and More. A majority of these canine sporting disciplines are open to ALL dogs regardless of pedigree, size or style of dog, there’s an event for them. For example, I have a friend that has a mastiff mix and she’s really good at Herding, who would have guessed that? Dog Days at PV Days, come find a new hobby for you and your hound.

WOOFstock 2017 – The 6th Annual on the cool grass of the Prescott Valley Amphitheater Saturday, June 10th, 10a - 4p. WOOFstock is fun for the whole family, furry or otherwise. Dozens of rescue organizations from around the state will have loving pets looking for their forever home. There are fun contests for canines and humans alike, and more. This year we have added the “Bark for a Cure” walk. More details in the coming months.

DOGtoberfest 2017 – The 11th Annual DOGtoberfest at the Historic Courthouse Square in Prescott Sunday October 1st 10-4P. DOGtoberfest is the granddaddy of them all. October 1st the Courthouse square goes to the dogs–literally. DOGtoberfest is our fall celebration of all things dog. There will be dozens of rescue organizations, vendors, food, advise, contests and prizes. In 2017, we will be partnering with Blue Buffalo Pet Food and their Canine Cancer Research Foundation to bring awareness and raising much needed funds for canine cancer research. More details in the coming months.

Prescott Dog Magazine is committed to the Human/Animal Bond. We support all of the rescue groups, shelters and other dog related programs. We are repeatedly humbled by the examples of dedication and the determination of those volunteers who do the work day in and day out. They don’t do this for the glory or the glamour, their dedication is derived from their will to help and their love for animals.

Is this the year for you to get involved? Whether you have two hours a month or twenty, there is an organization out there that could use your unique or not so unique talents. Flip back to page 40 and check out the list of organizations in our area. They’d be glad you did.

I have heard it said you get out of a dog, what you put into them. Meaning, for example, the more you train a dog, the better the dog will respond and the more they will learn. I see it the same way for the new year. Each year is like a new puppy, a clean slate, full of hope, excitement and plenty of love.
