We had a great time at our recent NYC doggy meetup and DJANGO pop up shop event in the East Village! The pop up shop event was hosted by collabXartists, a NYC-based group that hosts low budget spaces for local artists, brands, and mak. We had a DJANGO table to showcase and offer our popular dog harnesses, leashes, dog carrier bags and more. Our two and four-legged friends from around the city came to hang out, mingle, and sip complimentary wine while enjoying a beautiful summer evening in the city.
The World Dog Expo celebrates dogs of all shapes and sizes in spectacular fashion. Attendees enjoy tons of dog-friendly events, such as dock diving, disc dog, lure coursing, weight pull, agility, fly ball, obedience, scent work, french ring sport, barn hunt and schutzhund. There are also opportunities for dogs and owners to participate together in sports, training and other bonding experiences.
Perhaps the main attraction of World Dog Expo will be the notable trade show event, featuring a huge array of dog–centered products. Attendees will be able to find the newest and best products for their canine companions. Participating vendors will benefit from the unprecedented exposure created for the event.
The World Dog Expo is being held at Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ. Purchase tickets directly on the World Expo website.

Mike and I (Steph) were thrilled to attend the 2020 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show! We met so many beautiful dogs and watched as Siba the standard poodle was crowned Best in Show! We also hung out in Home Depot's booth at Pier 94 and let our 10 month old (Django's Lil Bro) test our Home Depot's spill-proof, stain-proof, and dog- and baby-friendly LifeProof carpets.
