And so it begins…. The summer in Minneapolis is filled with countless dog-centric events. From fundraisers to adoptions to walks to dog washes to agility demos, there always seems to be something to do with your dog! This weekend is kicking off with a handful of great options, and hopefully it will be nice outside. (fingers crossed!)
This is just a sampling of events that Sarah Beth Photography will be a part of this spring. Of course, if you want a complete list of events as well as dog-friendly restaurants, dog parks, businesses and anything dog-related, be sure to check out Sidewalk Dog!
