The sun knew exactly what kind of a day it needed to be. Warm rays bathed Snoqualmie Ridge, in a golden glow – the perfect backdrop for the debut of the Snoqualmie Family Dog Show! This wasn’t your typical, fur-ociously competitive event. This was a celebration of the furry companions who hold a paw-print on our hearts and families.

As a pet photographer I had a blast meeting all the pups and their families. If you didn’t get a chance to book with me, it’s not too late!

A Family Friendly Dog Show

Ditch the Westminster-esque seriousness! The Snoqualmie Family Dog Show was all about lighthearted fun, a joyful space for families and their canine companions to truly showcase their bond. From the moment we entered the venue, the atmosphere was electric with happy barks and excited chatter. Laughter erupted through the room as categories like “Oldest Dog,” “Fluffiest Dog,” and “Best Dressed” unleashed the unique personalities of each furry contestant.

This show was not about intense training and pedigree pressure, it was about uniting the community of dog lovers together. The only qualifications needed were a wagging tail and a love for belly rubs. Each participant proudly strutted their stuff with infectious enthusiasm, leaving judges and audiences alike beaming with joy.

Local animal hospitals were readily available to answer any questions about pet care, while talented pet artists captured the uniqueness of each furry visitor in charming watercolor portraits. Charities dedicated to animal welfare spread awareness about their causes, and the aroma of delicious food from various vendors filled the air – a delightful treat for both humans and canine companions alike.

Even the littlest dog lovers weren’t forgotten at the Snoqualmie Family Dog Show! The event organizers thoughtfully included a designated kids’ area where bubbles machines frothed with rainbow-hued spheres, enjoyed by the dogs as much as the children. Face painting transformed cheeks into playful puppy faces and majestic lion manes, fueling imaginations and giggles galore. And for those boundless bursts of energy, a spacious playground provided a perfect outlet for the young ones to run, climb, and expend some steam before rejoining the canine festivities.

Pups Could Earn AKC Certificates

For those craving a touch of accomplishment, the event offered a chance to earn AKC Good Citizen status. This certification recognizes furry friends as well-mannered canine ambassadors.

AKC trick dog classes were also available, showcasing pups’ impressive skills. From playing dead on command to jumping through hoops, the displays were heartwarming. They were a testament to both canine intelligence and the incredible bond between humans and their furry best friends.
