Excuse Our Mess… But Change Is Coming

We are working hard to update the website, so excuse our mess while we are under construction. We will be back soon better than ever!

Remember to save our date: The 10th annual Bark in the Park will be held Saturday, October 13, 2018 at Geneseo City Park. Much like our website, it is being revamped for the big anniversary.  The focus of the family event will be on dog-related races, contests, exhibits, and educational opportunities.

Would you like more information about the Tenth Anniversary Bark in the Park? Would you be interested in being a sponsor or perhaps a vendor? Do you have an idea of exhibitors you would be interested in seeing?

For these (or any other inquires) send an e-mail to and we will get back to you.

2017 Thanks a Million!
