🐾 Lyons Township Dog Training Club will be celebrating its 75th anniversary as a sanctioned performance dog club. To celebrate this occasion Lyons will be having a combination party and game day with our best friends, the dogs we love so much.  🐾

If your dog is a good kisser 😘, has a great nose 🐽 , loves music 🎶, likes to play Fido Says 🐕, can weave thru poles let the games begin. Dog games will start at 12:30.
❤ There will also be a Doggie Swap Meet table in which you will have the opportunity to donate gently used or new dog item in exchange for another item of equal value that you can use. Any donations not swapped out will be given to DuPage Animal Rescue. ❤
