Dog owners flocked to Niles Sunday afternoon for the third annual Dog Ownership Day at the Eastwood Expo Center.

Dogs of all breeds were able to get their nails cut for free, get some new toys and even try to learn new tricks. Rescue shelters were also set up in an effort to get some dogs adopted.

Karen Lutz, owner of Elite K-9 Training, said the event continues to get bigger and bigger each year.

“It has grown and I would say that this year is the biggest year so far,” said Lutz. “Knowing we are reaching out to the community, the local businesses, the local rescuers, that is a wonderful feeling.”

This is the first year the event was held indoors.
