Fitger's and A Place for Fido are teaming up for our 4th all out dog event!

We fill the halls of Fitger's with local pet-related service businesses. Veterinarians, groomers, photographers, trainers, boarding kennels, agility clubs, pet sitters, and so much more.

Find out what is available for your fur babies and have a chance to meet the faces behind the places. This is a free event for all, so bring your dogs and come say hi.
