The VitaHound organization attended the event again this year, and again we were impressed with the dogs and their owners. The Prescott community cares for their pets and the people have amazing relationships with their dogs. The feedback provided by the numerous dog owners on their choices of dog supplements and various other areas of care for their hounds provides our staff with valuable nuggets of info on dog health + the people are fun creating one of our favorite events. See every one in 2013.
