We are seeking dogs and their owners who would like to show off a special trick or talent for our judges and audience to determine who will take home 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize in this year’s talent show. In addition to shiny trophies, the winners will also receive cash and other prizes.

We love our certified, professional dog trainers, but we are sorry, this competition is for non-professional dog owners only. If you are certified, but do not offer dog training as a professional service, you are eligible to participate. We encourage participants to work with our dog training partners prior to the competition for ideas and tips if needed.
Upon registering, you will be emailed an entry form to complete as well as additional details about your appearance in the 1st Annual Doggy Talent Show.
We encourage dog lovers, who are not interested in participating in the talent show, to come watch, support their favorite dog(s), and vote. You can also visit with pet vendors and partners who will have tables set up in the Mall. Santa will also be visiting at the Mall. Your dog can visit and get its picture taken. Lots of photo package options are also available from digital downloads and traditional photos to snow globes and stuffed reindeer.
