Summer is here! We can feel it in the air and in the cold crisp water we get to play in at The Ranch Pet Resort and Spa! The summer weather makes us want to run, jump, splash, shake, and roll around with our friends!
In cruising the dog park, word has it there are a number of Fun Dog Events for Dog Loving People this Summer.
Support East Bay Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation
Look guys, we are very luck to have loving families and a great life full of adventure and fun at The Ranch. But some of our canine pals and feline friends aren’t yet into loving homes.
Here is a chance to give back to support those in need of homes or rehabilitation. Starry Nite Studios, Brentwood’s only family-friendly paint party studio, is offering a fun event that supports East Bay Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation.
The event takes place on May 28 from 12-3:30 pm. Professional artists will sketch a picture of you and your hooman will paint you while having fun with drinks at the bar! The event is a worthy one and costs $100.
Have your hooman sign up here!
Live Music with Tom Jackman at Big Dog Vineyards
What better way than to shoot the summer breeze than with Live Music by Tom Jackman at Big Dog Vineyards in Sunol. Enjoy R&B, pop, rock and country tunes while sipping small-batch, handmade wines. The event takes place on Sunday, May 29 from 1-4 pm.
Don’t worry if your hoomans can’t make it on the 29, Big Dog Vineyards hosts live music every weekend! Check out their story and more including their list of performers on their website.
