And they were off! Doggy Dash 2014 a success!

Doggy DashNothing beats a run with your pup on a cool day! That’s just what participants of the 2014 Pet Haven Doggy Dash got to enjoy on Saturday, August 23, 2014.

With cloudy, fairly cool weather–but no rain!–runners, walkers, and their dogs enjoyed the 5K run and 3K walk at Trapp Farm Park in Eagan, MN. The course ran along the beautiful park and through a few neighborhoods. With around 80 participants and more than 55 dogs, it was a fast and furry fun event. Pet Haven received many compliments on hosting such a great event; the pup participants were especially pleased with the awesome goodie bags they received, full of biscuits, pigs’ ears, treats, and coupons.

Taking the top awards for top male, female, and dog, were the family of Darin Aus, Alison Willford, and D-Bo. Congratulations to Darin, Alison and D-Bo for a great race, and to all participants for supporting Pet Haven!
