Celebrate National Dog Day with treats, swag, and a Colorado canine celebrity

(Colorado Springs, CO) Dogs enrich the lives of those around them. They are great therapists, reliable workout buddies, and vigilant security guards all rolled up into one loyal and loving companion.

They deserve to be celebrated on National Dog Day, and the Colorado Springs Scheels store is the party headquarters.

On Saturday, August 26th, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Scheels will host a free dog party in the parking lot with swag (dog bowls & bandanas) for the first 100 dogs, free pup cups, local vendors, and event-exclusive deals.

Those attending the event can register to win one of six prize packages, each with a $100 Scheels gift card and dog-related swag.

Mayor Parker the Snow Dog, a 7-year-old Bernese Mountain dog who is the honorary mayor of Georgetown, Colorado, and the official mascot for the Loveland Ski Area, will be at the party also.

Parker is a cookie-loving, trained therapy dog who has become a local celebrity. Don't miss this opportunity to meet the sweet pup.

After partying in the parking lot, take your furry family member inside for a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. The Colorado Springs store has a 16,000-gallon salt-water aquarium and an indoor Ferris wheel.

Scheels also has numerous taxidermy animal displays, including "Wildlife Mountain" with over 200 taxidermy-preserved critters. The store has free photo opportunities, animatronic displays, a candy store, video games, and a small two-lane bowling alley. It is a fun place for everyone to explore, especially on National Dog Day!
