Motto: “To friendly owners and happy dogs!”

Urban-Dog Fest was no doubt the friendliest event in the city, and every dog-loving person was invited to attend. The event was a great opportunity to make new friends (for both – people and dogs), to learn a lot of valuable things about dog care from experts, buy delicious snacks, accessories and toys and enjoy different lectures and watch open-air cinema. 

We, here at “A Dog with a Mission”, believe that communication is the basis of great and mutually beneficial relationships not only between humans but also between a human and their pet. We always have to be open to learning new things not only about how to be good owners to our pets but also how to be good members of society for the sake of other pets. We constantly must educate ourselves about how animals communicate, their body language, different signals they display in different situations and what the best response to those signals is, and a lot more. These things will allow us to avoid unpleasant or even dangerous situations. 

The agenda for this year’s festival included:

  • introductory speech from “A Dog with a Mission” and the main sponsor o the event – “Narvesen Latvia”,
  • a lecture on dog communication by Lauma Zutere,
  • skills demonstration by police dogs and their handlers and owners from the State Police,
  • speed-dating with expert dog handlers and behaviourists (Anyone could ask experts a question, they had 7 minutes to answer the question),
  • open-air cinema showing of “Jacob, Mimmi and the Talking Dogs”.

Throughout the entire event a photo booth was available for creating great memories and there was also a small market where different vendors offered snacks, drinks, dog toys, treats and accessories. 

We hope the Urban-Dog Fest will become a yearly tradition that every dog lover looks forward to. To make it happen, we are always looking for new supporters!
