Norfolk was recently named one of the “Top 100 best places in the country for Dogs” by Men’s Health Magazine (18 out of 100) ( and we could not agree more!  To celebrate, we are planning this event especially for man’s best friend with local dog-friendly businesses including Doggie Days Cares, Puppy Play Pools, Doggie Dining Areas, Pet Grooming, pampering and more!

There will be a costume competition for “Best Dressed Dog”, so bring your pup in their best costume to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all, dog owners are asked to comply with these rules and considerations: Dogs who attend must be socialized with other dogs, remain on a leash at all times and have their tags/vaccinations up to date.  Owners are responsible for picking up after their pooches.
