The Dog-Friendly Downtown Launch Event

With over 30 member businesses, we are making Saratoga a destination, not only for two-legged customers, but also those with four legs! We are happy to announce the DFD Launch Event on Saturday May 15, 2010 from 11am - 5pm.

11am – 3pm: Scavenger Hunt
Participants will visit several member businesses throughout the day, collecting answers to Scavenger Hunt Ballot questions from each business they visit
Some businesses will be offering DFD Launch Event Day promotions and sales!

3pm – 5pm: Doggy Yappy Hour at Putnam Den
Participants will submit their ballots for a drawing
A local radio/TV personality and their dog will be recognized at the event
Radio/TV personality will select winners from those who’ve submitted completed Scavenger Hunt Ballots
Prizes will be raffled off in a winners-choice drawing

Prior to Event:
  • Download/print a DFD Scavenger Hunt Ballot (coming soon!) here at the DFD website or at Sloppy Kisses.
  • The ballot will include a DFD Map with business addresses.
  • All Scavenger Hunt participating businesses will be listed with a question specific to their business (E.g. At Sloppy Kisses, the question may be “What is the owners dog’s name?”)
  • Businesses will post answers to Scavenger Hunt questions at their location (at a front counter or in the window)
  • Scavenger Hunt participants will be required to visit 7 member-businesses, collecting answers to questions pertaining to that business for their ballot to be eligible for entry into a raffle.
  • A special prize will be granted to Scavenger Hunt participants who visit ALL participating DFD businesses!
We are looking forward to celebrating DFD’s official launch and hope you are too!!
