Welcome to the 12th Annual Huntsville Obedience Training Club's (HOTC) Dog Fair!
The HOTC Dog Fair provides a wide range of demonstrations and hands-on activities for the public
and their canine companions, and gives local shelters and rescue groups the opportunity to showcase
their dogs in need of a 'forever' home.
Vendors' booths with dog-related items for sale help lend a country-fair
atmosphere to the event, enhancing everyone's enjoyment.
Start your day at the HOTC Dog Fair with a visit to WELCOME & INFORMATION. You can pick up the latest Event Schedule, Dog Fair Map showing activity and Exhibitor locations, and register for dozens of door-prizes to be given away at 10:30, 12:00, and 2:00 drawings.
Welcome & Information is staffed by knowledgeable HOTC volunteers to help you enjoy your day.
Can your dog sit? Keep on the look out for the PRIZE PATROL
Ever wonder what would happen if you got lost in the woods? HEMSI is here to show you.
Would your dog like a new toy? PRIZES FOR POOP is just the thing for you.
Want to learn about scent training, try a 'Hide and Seek' session. If your dog jumps on people or has other issues, then the mini-training session 'Training Q & A' in Training may help.
All performances, demonstrations and public-participation activities are free except for the Microchipping Clinc, and you'll have lots of
opportunities to win some of the hundreds of prizes that will be given away.
Please note there is a nominal per car parking fee charged by Monte Sano State Park.
