aPaws 2012 Annual Convention

October 12-14, 2012

Are Ya Ready And On Your Way For The aPaws 2012 Annual Convention, Turd-Herding Contest and Name That Turd! 

Pet Professionals From All Over The Country Are On Their Way To Las Vegas!

That’s not a typo - it’s the Turd-Herding Contest and Name That Turd! 

It’s what every professional looks forward to each year! 

The Turd-Herding Contest is for professional animal waste specialists... a contest to find out who is the fastest animal waste specialist in the nation. 

During the contest, dozens of fake dog poops are placed around the grounds of the hotel and we see who can pick up the most piles in two minutes.  And they take this event seriously!  In fact, due to some unfortunate circumstances in past contests, aPaws board members have had to modify the rules to include penalties for body checking the competition.  The top three winners each receive a trophy and bragging rights... at least until next year!
