Shorty also takes potentially dangerous chances when approaching and handling stray dog -- which kids may need to be reminded not to emulate.
Shorty briefly discusses his conviction for attempted murder and subsequent time in prison. People are shown pushing, shoving, and wrestling with each other, but many of these confrontations seem staged.
There will be performances by the Marvelous Mutts, an agility course, a flying disc competition, lure chasing, canine demonstrations, weight pulling, training exhibits, AKC good citizen testing, and paw painting.
The Main Stage will host a variety of family-friendly, interactive shows and contests.
