An array of dinner delicacies and accessories appealing to both human and canine palates will be in abundance. Unleashed by Petco will set up a “fetching” bar with treats, toys, digital photo booth, and primping station for the more than thirty certified therapy dogs (and their human partners) who will be in attendance, groomed to their finest
