All dogs must be on a leash and within the full control of
their handler at all times. Donations will be accepted at
the event to benefit the Davidson Dog Park, a $5 donation is
suggested for entrants.
The annual event was revived in 2009 after a hiatus, and
annually attracts some of the more unusually dressed canines
The very first Doggie Fashion Show was held in 1988 in front
of the Davidson Post Office. Around Davidson columnist
Brenda Barger recalls: "That year, three elementary age boys
even appeared as an entry - two under a sheet with ears and
a tail and a third holding the collar and leash. It was
perfect small-town Davidson. This has always been the
'signature dish' for Christmas in Davidson."
