They say home is where the boxer is, so welcome to the greatest, sweetest, happiest, loyal-est, most wiggle-buttiest place on earth. We’re really thrilled to present Boxerstock 2016, our ninth (or sixty-third, depending) event. You’re invited to bring your entire family for a day chock-filled with great music from some of the best up-and-coming acts around, fresh and scrumptious dining from the hottest food trucks, a kids’ village for all the puppies in your life, a silent auction, and an off-leash dog park for your fur babies.
And of course, all this goes to help rescue and support some of the sweetest, kindest, goofiest, and most noble creatures on our planet, the boxer.
This year, we are excited to welcome Victoria Stilwell, one of the world's most recognized and respected dog trainers! She is best known for her role as the star of Animal Planet's hit TV series It's Me or the Dog, through which she is able to share her insight and passion for positive reinforcement dog training. She will be speaking in the main arena at 2:30pm.
