Carlsbad celebrated its favorite wet-nosed canines at this year’s Carlsbad Dog Days of Summer hosted by Carlsbad Causes for Community (C3). Attendees got in touch with their inner pooch by dressing up in their favorite dog costume and flaunting their doggy makeup. Dogs – and those dressed as dogs – took part in a dog contest, showing off their coolest tricks, fabulous coat, and/or resemblance to their owner. The dog contest categories included Best Trick, Cutest Dog, Best Dog and Owner Look-a-Like, Ugliest Dog, and more. Congratulations to all the talented pets that took home awards. Refreshments, entertainment, raffle prizes, and lots of doggy loving continued on well into the summer afternoon. To stay informed about C3 events like Carlsbad Dog Days of Summer be sure to visit
