Saturday, April 1

Come celebrate Dog Man Day at the AKC Museum of the Dog!

Our tails are wagging in anticipation of the 11th book in the series, Dog Man: Twenty Thousand Fleas Under the Sea publishing March 28th.

Spend the day at the Museum celebrating everyone's favorite canine superhero while learning about working dogs. There will be guided craft activities, the opportunity to meet and pet dogs from a breed often used in police work, demonstrations by the NYPD K9 Transit Bureau, and an appearance by Dog Man himself! Additionally, at the event, you can enter to win a free family 4 pack of tickets to Dog Man the Musical now playing at the New World Stages through April 30th!
