The free AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Celebration will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Expo Center.
Tennessee Valley Kennel Club will celebrate this national event with games, treats, and information about dog ownership.
Those attending will also be given an opportunity to sign the Pet Promise petition.
