Treat your dog this weekend with the 7th annual Peaks and Paws Festival, held on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Squaw Valley.

“We’ll be rolling out the balls, red carpet and (even more) water bowls Saturday, Aug. 27 at this special day to benefit the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe,” states the Squaw Valley website.

Included in the festival is a dog-friendly guided hike in the mountains, specialty product pet vendors, all-day live bluegrass music and the Ultimate Flying Dog Show. Other pet-friendly activities include flyball and Fetch Fest, a timed ball retrieval contest to see which dog can retrieve the most tennis balls from Cushing Pond in a set amount of time.

“Flyball is a fast-paced and exciting relay race for dogs. The course is comprised of four jumps, a spring-loaded box and is 51 feet in length. Each dog must run down the racing lane clearing all four jumps, trigger the box, catch the ball and return back up the lane over all the jumps to its handler,” explains the website.

JD Platt and the K9 Kings host the Flying Dog Show, held three times throughout the day.

Lagunitas Brewing Company will serve $5 beers, and wine is available by the glass. From 4-5 p.m., Yappy Hour will offer complimentary pet treats and $1 off all drinks.

Entry is free, but some competitions have a registration fee. For more information, visit http://www.squawalpine.com.

The venue is located at 1960 Squaw Valley Road in Olympic Valley.
