If you are looking for something to do with your furry friend this labor day weekend... you can bring them with you to Old Tucson Studios.

This Labor Day weekend, Old Tucson is saying goodbye to the dog days of summer by celebrating all things canine. 

Dock Dogs will hold a competition to see which furry friend can jump the highest, the farthest and swim the fastest to retrieve a toy. 

The competition will run for three days during regular park hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with finals on Monday, September 3.

Guests are invited to bring their own dogs out to compete in the amateur class. Sign up and registration can be found here

Pet clinics will also be on hand to offer free services for your dogs.

If your pooch prefers to be pampered, pet clinics will be offering free nail trimming, ear cleaning and even dog massages on Saturday and Sunday.

Don't have a dog? Don't worry, pet adoptions from both Pima Animal Care Center and the Humane Society will be available on site as well.

Kids 11 and under get in free all weekend, adult admission is $19.95, with senior, military and Pima County resident discounts available.
