Dog's Day Out annual event returns for the 5th year

BELVIDERE, Ill (WIFR) --- Our four legged furry friends had a whole day to enjoy the outdoors at the annual Dog's Day Out event hosted by Meyer's Tails Up Farm.

The event gave dogs and owners the opportunity to interact with other dogs. The free event also offered an inside scoop as to what classes look like at Meyer's.

"All of our trainers are here and our staff to answer questions for you," says owner, Gwen Meyer.

Many pet owners learn more about their dog and how to give their beloved friends a healthy lifestyle.

"We want to just help them be the hero in their dog's life. Dogs are here for a finite period of time and they should have a great life while they are here," says Meyer.

The event happens every year at the start of the summer season attracting around 300 families throughout the day.
