Dogs will be taking over the San Diego Convention Center this summer in the city's biggest pet event of the season.
The American Kennel Club (AKC) and GF Sports & Entertainment are hosting "Meet the Breeds," a two-day animal education event, on Aug. 14 and Aug. 15.
Meet the Breeds will be the first public-facing event held at the convention center since before the pandemic. The convention center acted as a migrant shelter for children and teenagers throughout the past few months.
Meet the Breeds attendees will have the opportunity to meet and play with hundreds of dogs all while learning about responsible pet ownership and which breed(s) is best for their lifestyle... straight from the experts!
