At the event, we’ll be announcing the launch of three new dog-friendly projects, including the installation of the nation’s first Wagtown Dog Trail and Wagtown Barking Spots. The Trail is a two-mile paw-printed tour of some of Dayton’s iconic landmarks, dog-friendly venues, and open spaces for dogs to relax with their dog parents. Resting places along the way, called Wagtown Barking Spots, will provide a place to connect with dog pals, get info on what’s going on for dog lovers, and activate spaces in our region through the ultimate social lubricant…DOGS!

*Dogs in attendance must be licensed, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, on leash, and friendly toward dogs and people. All breeds welcome.
