Dog demo takes center stage at Wausau Mall

By Bonnie Shelton

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Man's best friend took center stage Saturday at the Wausau Center Mall. The Paper Cities Kennel Club Purebred dog demo brought out a wide variety of breeds.

From the collie to the beagle, visitors got an up close and personal look at local owners and breeders' pets. The event featured a parade of breeds, obedience and agility demonstrations, and a bite prevention for kids seminar.

Organizers say its a great way to introduce people to different breeds.

"You've got to get in your own mindset," explained organizer Marvin Strassburger. "What size dog do you want? Do you want small or large? Do you want to groom the dog? Have a dog with hair? No hair?" 

Paper Cities Kennel Club representatives were on hand to offer advice to potential pet owners.

Some other popular breeds at the event were the Portuguese Water Dog and Labrador Retriever.
