Think your pup stands out from the pack? Sign them up to join the crowd of talented canines that will take the stage for the West-VILLE-minster Dog Show this Saturday, Aug. 26 from 4 to 6 p.m. at One World Brewing’s West Asheville location.

Your furbaby is welcome to compete for prizes in categories including best facial hair, best talent, most mysterious heritage, best underbite, and more. Fill out the form to register for specific competitions, with the $15 fee for each category benefiting the Asheville Humane Society.

Humans without participating pups are welcome to attend for a $5 donation but are asked to leave their four-legged friends at home. So whether you plan on leading your dog to victory or simply spectating, you’re in for a doggone good time.
