|On Friday, October 2nd, 2015, the Festival will kick off with a premiere cocktail gala Pooch Party at a posh New York location where dogs will be welcomed by photographers on a red carpet. There will be entertainment and education including sketch artists, animal psychics, NYPD officers with their K-9 partners, dog portraitists, acupuncture demonstrations, and advice from dog trainers, veterinarians, and groomers – served up along with canine-themed beverages for the people and specialty snacks for the canines.
