The Shelton-based Trap Falls Kennel Club will sponsor Responsible Dog Ownership Day, an annual American Kennel Club event, on Sunday Sept. 15 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Warsaw Park in Ansonia.

Pawz in the Park will focus on proper dog training, healthcare and feeding; Best Dressed and Best Trick contests; obedience and rally matches, Canine Good Citizen testing; obedience, agility and police dog demonstrations; and Meet the Breeds.

Additionally, there will be a low-cost microchipping clinic and veterinarians will be on hand to offer health tips and advice.

The event also will feature food, vendors, a pet photographer and raffles.

Pawz in the Park is free to the public and their leashed dogs. Attendees are encouraged to bring donation items for local animal shelters, and those who bring such items will receive a free raffle ticket.
