Montreal loves dogs.\nWell, for the most part - so long as they're not a pit bull breed! But even then, I think the vast majority of us Montrealers love these furry companions.\nPersonally, pit bulls are some of my favourite breeds around.\nRegardless of your pups breed, Montreal is one of the best cities to be a dog owner... and that is in part thanks to our wonderful festival that celebrates your furry family member.\nREAD ALSO: Montreal Will Host A Huge Scottish Festival This Summer\nVia Dog Fest Montreal\nMontreal's Dog Fest returns this summer to celebrate the special relationships between humans and their "most loyal" companions.\n"Since the beginning of time, dogs have been our helpers, our protectors, and our friends."\nDog Fest is a 2-day celebration chalked full of super dog performances, live music and just a great, entertaining day in the park with your little fur buddy and other like-minded dog parents.\nView this post on Instagram 😂❤️🐶 #DogFestMontreal A post shared by DOG FEST MONTREAL (@dogfestmontreal) on Mar 10, 2018 at 1:27pm PST\nThere will be over 50 vendors on hand stocked to the brim with dog toys, treats, accessories, grooming tools, etc. There will also be trainers on hand - so you can get some tips or plan out some classes to teach your pup something new.\nThe best part of Dog Fest Montreal is that a good chunk of the proceeds will be going to Fondation MIRA Inc, a local guide-dog school, and charity foundation. So when you get something for your pup, you're supporting other pups and the people in need who will soon be giving them a forever home.\nThat, alone, gives this festival the leg-up on other events happening around this weekend. This one is not to miss.\nView this post on Instagram Waiting for DOG FEST Montreal 2016 like.... ---- En attendant DOG FEST Montreal 2016... @remixthedog A post shared by DOG FEST MONTREAL (@dogfestmontreal) on Oct 3, 2016 at 3:10pm PDT\nOh - did I mention that it is totally free to attend?
