Local pet-focused businesses such as Central Bark Doggy Day Care, Lauderdale Pet Lodge, Meals for Dogs and Pet Express Animal Hospital will showcase available products and services.

Co-hosted by NBC6’s Kelly Blanco and Adam Berg, Fashion Hounds will feature a high-energy dog runway show with coveted prizes awarded to trendy owners and their fashionable furry friends. Categories for the event include Best Dog Walk, Best Dressed, Dynamic Duo and Best in Show.
