If your kids are at that age where they are asking to get a dog it's a good idea to do a little research before bringing home a new family member. One place to gets hands on research with over 150 dog breeds is the Wisconsin Dog Fair coming up November 3rd at the Alliant Energy Center. This is where you can sit and pet the dogs and ask their owners all kinds of questions from temperament to shedding to exercise requirements.
Truman and I have been participating in this event for four years now and we will be there again representing the Australian Cattle Dog breed. You can stop by and meet Truman and chat for a while. We'd love to meet you and tell you all about how SMART this breed is. And how stubborn and challenging they can be. :) You'll get honest information from owners who love their Chihuahuas and Great Danes to everything in between.
You'll also get to witness all kinds of demonstrations from agility to fly ball to K-9 unit training. Plus, you'll find plenty of information on rescue organizations, dog training and tons more. It's a fun event to bring your kids to. Even if you already own a dog it's a wonderful place to shop the vendors and see all the different breeds.
