Smith-Gilbert Gardens will have its inaugural Hounds on the Grounds event on March 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Although the Gardens do not ordinarily allow pets, well-behaved dogs on leashes will be welcomed at the event. A sampling of these activities include Frisbee and agility demonstrations, a pet parade and costume and pet trick contest, and owner/child/pet hand print/paw print art and photos. Participants can also sign their dog up for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test which awards a medal to dogs that pass 10 command tests.
Smith-Gilbert Gardens is at 2382 Pine Mountain Road, Kennesaw.
