The annual Pride of Pets Dog Show in Dupont Circle is a must-attend event if you are in town this weekend. This year’s dog show is Saturday, June 26, from 3 to 6 pm.

If you are interested in entering your dog, the registration form is online. There are 15 categories for your dog; it costs $6 per category or for $25 you can enter your dog into as many categories as you like. (Whether your dog will enjoy being entered into 15 categories is something entirely different.)

Entry fees help support PETS-DC, a nonprofit that helps care for the companion animals of people with disabling illnesses.
