Que Buen Perro! (What a Good Dog!) this Sunday, Dec. 13 at 10 am in Los Sauces Park
Que Buen Perro! (What a Good Dog!), is designed to demonstrate the potential of abandoned dogs to become loving and well-behaved pets. Dogs of all stripes will be participating in the dog obedience contests and 2 “beauty” contests (Best Street Dog and Best Purebred). There will be prizes for the first-place winners in all categories and a Grand Entry Parade of All Dogs. The event begins at 10 a.m.
SPCA-PV is holding “Que Buen Perro!” with the help of Carlos Ochoa, a local dog obedience trainer who has transformed many street dogs into good pets.
Entrance to the park and participation in the Grand Parade of Dogs is free; entry for the contests is $100 pesos per contest.

Coffee, juices and snacks will be offered by Julio`s Café .
Bus directions: courtesy of SPCA-PV volunteer David Rohde: From Old Town or Centro get on a green bus that says “GPE VICTORIA” on the front. It will get you to Francisco Villa. On F V it will pass the Cine Versailles and proceed about a block and turn right. On Avenida de los Tores it will turn left and within a few (4, 5 or 6) blocks, it should pass the park. I trust these instructions although I have not tested them myself.
Small dogs that you can hold in your lap are almost always welcome on buses; pick your dog up before you board the bus. Larger dogs will often be allowed if there are not too many people on board. Sunday morning is an especially good time to get your larger dog onto a bus. Be prepared to be refused by one or two buses before a driver stops who will allow you aboard. If you are standing alone at a bus stop, indicate that you want the bus to stop by raising your hand, as they may assume you do NOT want the bus to stop because you are with a dog.
Driving directions from Old Town: Get to Avenue Francisca Villa heading towards Costco. At the intersection where Costco is on left side and Banamex on right, turn right. Drive one long block to Avenida de los Tores.You will pass Lukumbe, a modern, upscale coffee shop, and turn left at the intersection just past it. You will also see the British American School at that intersection and a bright orange army barracks. Go one or two blocks to Los Sauces Park.
