Thanks so much for making the 7th annual Dog Day Spectacular such a success this year!

We have added a slideshow of some of this year's event below, and are keeping the rest of the page as designed for any details about the event you might be interested in.

New to the Dog Day Spectacular? View some of this year's highlights below, and check out our page on all our past Dog Days!

We are thrilled to share that this year's Dog Day Spectacular will also host a North American Diving Dogs dock diving trial!

If you have always been interested in introducing your water-loving dog to dock diving you can buy a practice pass on-site for multiple test jumps.
 
To pre-register, or to learn more about NADD's AKC Trial please visit their event page. Online registration will close at midnight on 9/7. Day of show entries may be available until participation limits are reached.
It is an honor to say that we are once again partnering with UpDog Challenge as well. UpDog shares our passion in expanding the awareness and participation of people and dogs in athletic endeavors. Both UpDog and BAM want more people and more dogs having fun, playing together.

Their disc dog games are more than just a frisbee catch, and offer an opportunity for every dog and human to work toward their own personal bests.
Plan to join in the FUN! The FUNgility arena will be back for the 5th year. Watch demos from experienced handlers and their dogs, then try your own turn in the arena. Trial runs are open to any age and every experience level throughout the day! Agility courses are a fantastic way to bond with your dog and improve or reinforce their confidence. Don't miss out on the FUN!

This year's Dog Day Spectacular profits will once again be split between BAM's wide range of community programs and Meika's Fund for the FIFTH year in a row.

With a generous start-up donation and continued donations earmarked for the cause, BAM is able to support injured or ill shelter pets who require emergency medical services, as well as low-income pet owners whose pets need financial aid to receive critical veterinary care.

You are welcome to make a direct donation to Meika's Fund by visiting your local Wells Fargo Bank, or simply make a donation to BAM via PayPal through our Donate page and label your donation to be applied to Meika's Fund.


And please contact us to request financial aid if you have a medically needy pet whose veterinary care you cannot afford.
