Weekend Pick: ‘Mutts Gone Nuts’ and Other Canine Fun

Reston Community Center is bringing two activities for dog lovers to Hunters Woods this weekend.

Join RCC for “Mutts Gone Nuts – A Comedy Dog Act” Sunday at 11 a.m. at CenterStage.

Says RCC: “They’ll have you at “woof.” Disorderly duo Scott and Joan Houghton and their hilarious pack of pooches have created a comedy dog thrill show like no other. Expect the unexpected in this top-notch presentation that includes: incredible high-flying Frisbee dogs,tight-wire dogs, dancing dogs, magic dogs and of course, the one and only Sammie the Talking Dog!”

“Mutts Gone Nuts” features nine dogs, all of whom were adopted from animal shelters.

Tickets: $5 ($10 for non-Reston residents). Tickets can be purchased online.

After the show, stick around for RCC’s Paws & Claws Pet Resource Expo from noon to 3 p.m.

Information on pet care, training, nutrition, emergency situations, day care, and more will be available from local businesses. This free expo will take place inside RCC Hunters Woods. Pets, other than service animals, are not allowed inside the building. However, there will be a limited number of volunteers to look after pets, outside, during the event.

Vendors Include:
