How to prepare for Pints for Pits: - Bring the whole family! Kids are welcome to this family friendly event. - Get there early so you can snag one of the goodie bags! - Be sure to let your dog rest in the shaded areas and allow them to drink plenty of water. While the entertainment/drinks may vary from year to year, here's what this years event entailed! Vendor Show: Awesome products from your local pet businesses. Vendors were giving away free toys and prizes and also selling their way-too-cute dog accessories! I got a bandana for my dog immediately, I couldn't resist! A few vendors from this years event were The Waxy Dachshund, Kai & Cocoa's Threads, Dog Mama Shirt Shop, and Beer City Dog Biscuits.
