som|dog's annual Pet Palooza will kick off this with a TechBark launch party, Friday July 31st from 6–10 as we bring dogs, beer and technology together for a bark tech social.

The festivities begin on Saturday, August 1st to include all our furry sidekicks and their companions for a two-day, family focused festival to celebrate dog aquatics, and to get our community of dog owners in the pool (write to [email protected] for pre-registration information). The event will have test-it-out rings, ask the trainer, unique local pet vendors, a day focused on per adoption (Sunday), music, and face painting for kids are a few of the fun features this festival will bring to the community. 21+ guests will have the opportunity to relax in our beer garden.
