Puttin’ on The Dog Event in Greenwich, CT

Furry, four-legged friends are welcome and well-loved guests at the DELAMAR Greenwich Harbor. We go all-out for your pampered pooch, offering everything from a personalized doggy welcome kit and bed, to pup massage and walking services. We donate a portion of our pet program proceeds to Adopt-a-Dog, a local non-profit dedicated to homing loving dogs. Their annual event, celebrating its 30th year, Puttin’ on the Dog will be held on September 17 in Roger Sherman Baldwin Park, just a short stroll around the waterfront from our hotel doors.

The well-attended happening runs 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and promises a wide range of competition classes—many on the playful side of things—to anchor the schedule: the Biggest Lap Dog at 1 p.m. (challenging dogs 75 pounds or heavier to sit in their owners’ laps for one minute), Mirror Mirror at 2 p.m. (showcasing dog/owner lookalikes), K-9 Krooners at 3 p.m. (putting the spotlight on canine voices), and Best Tail Wagger at 4 p.m. (which doesn’t really need an explanation).

Along the way, some adorable pooches in need will find loving new homes, and a deserving organization will raise funds to fuel further rescue efforts.

Also on the docket are a canine talent show of sorts (Clever K-9 Tricks at 2 p.m.) and a meet-and-greet with dogs that have previously found families through Adopt-a-Dog’s efforts (Adopt-a-Dog Alumni, also at 2 p.m.). The daylong affair will also feature plenty of other dog-centric demonstrations and activities, so bring your pooch and play along!

The day’s furry fun unfolds to a soundtrack of live music and an array of food vendors, answering to appetites of the event’s two- and four-legged guests alike.

Here at DELAMAR Greenwich Harbor, we’re happy to put more than our hearts into this event. We’re offering a special deal for the big day: Book one of our guestrooms or suites the night of Puttin’ on the Dog (September 17), and receive 15% off your lodgings.
