Various pet owners all over the province joined their dogs in the recently held Dog Show last June 24, 2012 at the CNHS Gym.  The said activity was led by the Provincial Veterinary Office as one of the activities of the 429th Aggao Nac Cagayan celebration.

Provincial Veterinarian, Dr. Jaime A. Guillermo said that this undertaking had been institutionalized and started as part of Aggao’s celebration ten years ago. “Yearly, this activity draws hundreds of pet owners with their family members enjoying the day together,” Dr. Guillermo added.

Dogs of various breeds took part in the said event.  In small pure breed category, there were 59 participants; large pure breed with 28 participants; mixed breed with 29 participants and native breed with 11 participants. Out of the number of participants from the different breed categories, three (3) were chosen as the Best in Show Dog.  Some also joined the fashion show, where the dogs paraded with their formal wear, casual wear and sports wear.

Aside from the best in show awards from the different breed category, minor awards were also given such as: Pinaka-Astig, Pinaka-Cute, Pinaka-Japorms, Best Groomed Dog, Pet-Owner-Extreme-Alike, Pet-Owner-Look-Alike, Dog Tricks/Obedience, Best in Show and Asong Cagayano. Cash prizes, trophies and pet products were given to lucky winners. Pet products were also given to non-winners as consolation prize.
