What will Snickers and I be up to this weekend? We’ll be at Meet the Breeds! The National Shiba Club of America – along with volunteers from the Shiba Club of Greater NY, NYC Shiba Rescue, and the NYC Shiba meetup group – will have a booth FULL of Shiba Inus for the public to meet.
Aimed at helping the public understand the differences between breeds directly from breed experts, the Meet the Breeds event is the world’s largest showcase of dogs and cats with 160 dog breeds and 41 cat breeds being represented. The event will host 115,000 square feet of dog and cat revelry, including; grooming, agility and obedience demonstrations, law enforcement K9s, an animal art show, an educational cat show and much more.
The event will be held in New York City at the Jacob Javits Center located on 11th avenue between 34th and 39th Streets from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17th and Sunday, Oct. 18th. For more information and tickets, visit meetthebreeds.com.
If you’re in the area and have the chance to stop by, Snickers and I would love for you to visit the NSCA booth and say hello! (And, to answer the most frequently asked question, no, unfortunately attendees cannot bring pets.)
