1st Annual North Fork Dock Diving Pet Expo and Fundraiser Event
On Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21st, 2017, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company’s location in Peconic, N.Y., will be transformed into a doggie dock diving pet expo extravaganza and fundraising event! Harbor Pet and Greenport Harbor Brewing Company have joined forces to bring DockDogs® to the North Fork by co-hosting the 1st Annual North Fork Dock Diving Pet Expo and Fundraiser Event.
Blue Buffalo is the Presenting Sponsor of the event and the weekends’ event will benefit three different local organizations: the North Fork Welfare Animal League (NFWAL), of Southold, NY; Burton Potter Post (div. of American Legion); and Canine Companions for Independence (CCI).
“We wanted this event to benefit local organizations that mean a lot to us here on the North Fork and Long Island. Being able to give back to NFWAL, CCI and Burton Potter Post who do so much for the animals and people in our community is something we are very passionate about,” said Kimberly Loper Owner of Harbor Pet. “What a great way for pet parents to kick off the season here on the North Fork, meet and see new pet products and companies, and enjoy a beer from the brewery.”
“We are excited to bring the North Fork’s first dock diving event, pet expo and fundraiser to our brewery. Our event will bring in businesses from all around the area, help support local and island-wide non-profit organizations and get to see dogs fly through the air and splash in the pool,” said Rich Vandenburgh, Co-Founder of Greenport Harbor Brewing Company.
Champion Dock Diving Dogs from right here on Long Island and the tri-state area will be flying through the air making a big splash at this event. Dog owners that are interested in trying this aquatic dog sport are encouraged to come and let their dogs try it out as well. Dogs that love to swim and have high toy drive often take too it very quickly.
There are competitions throughout each day that dog dock diving novices and pros can register to be part of. Dog parents that want to have their dogs compete or try this sport for the first time need to register here www.dockdogs.com or they can register on site at the event.
DockDogs® is the largest and most diversified presenter of dock diving Dog Performance Sports in the world. Even if your dog is not trying dock diving, well behaved, leashed dogs are welcomed to this pet friendly weekend event.
