GCV&M Working Like a Dog Day Event
©GCV&M Facebook Event

Sunday, August 26 is National Dog Day, and GCV&M will be celebrating dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds in honor of our new exhibit, Working Like a Dog!

For the last 15,000 years, we have valued dogs for their keen senses of smell, sight and hearing that are superior to our own. Along with a strong prey instinct and stamina, these characteristics made dogs ideal for hunting, retrieving, herding, racing and guarding – as well as being endearing and faithful friends.

Explore the special relationship between humans and their "best friends" with themed games and crafts, skillful demonstrations by canine professionals, and visits with some famous American dogs.
