Find fascinating exhibits at the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog — one of the largest repositories of canine art in the world.

While there, peruse the museum’s first-ever dog-and-cat exhibit, Fr-enemies. Both exhibits end September 30th. More at museumofthedog.org.
Tuesday, September 4: Paws on the Walk at the Anaheim GardenWalk
Share happy hour with your best furry friend at the Anaheim GardenWalk, an “entertainment” destination close steps away from Southern California’s Disneyland Resort and Anaheim Convention Center. The first Paws on the Walk Happy Hour program runs from 4 to 7 p.m. on the upper level patio at the House of Blues Restaurant & Bar and features a special event-only Happy Hour menu. During September’s inaugural Paws on the Walk event, there’ll be a special photo opportunity for you and your furry pal that includes props and a VIP artificial turf “green carpet” for dogs to walk on while a photographer snaps complimentary keepsake pics. Humans will also be treated to henna tattoos. WAGS Pet Adoption and Anaheim Feed & Pet Supply will be on hand, too. More events to be announced, like a tour of the other GardenWalk restaurants and bars for future Paws on the Walk Gatherings.
