Mutts on the Mountain
Love the outdoors? You and your dog are invited to join OHS for the first annual Mutts on the Mountain Festival.
Update August 28, 2017: Thank you to everyone, human and canine, who joined us for the first Mutts on the Mountain event on August 26. It was a beautiful, sunny day; perfect for hiking and enjoying the offerings at Mt. Hood Meadows.
If you visited the photo booth at the event, the photos are now available to view and order prints online here »
Thanks to Phido Photography for donating 20% of photo proceeds to help the pets at OHS.
People and dogs are welcome at the first annual Mutts on the Mountain, an outdoor festival at Mount Hood Meadows.
Guests of all ages can relax on the beautiful mountainside and listen to live music, enjoy food and drink, and browse vendor booths.
Special festival activities include doggie sno-cones, dog collar decorating, a cooling station, raffle prizes, a photo booth, beer and wine garden, and more.
Guests and their dogs can also explore the mountain: there are three self-guided hiking trails (trail maps and descriptions coming soon!) open to people and their dogs.

Event Rules for Dogs
For the health and safety of all dogs and people participating, participants are asked to observe the following rules for canines attending the event with you:
- Participating dogs must be currently licensed with proof of Parvo and Rabies vaccinations. You do not need to bring proof with you; if an incident occurs, you must be able to produce proof in a reasonable amount of time.
- For safety reasons, “extend-a-leashes” will NOT be allowed. Dogs must be kept on a regular leash at all times. Leashes should be no more than six feet in length while on the hiking trails.
- Female dogs in heat are not permitted.
- Event officials reserve the right to refuse entry to any dog whose behavior could be dangerous to others. Please use good judgment regarding the temperament of your pet so that this event will be safe and enjoyable for everyone.
- Puppies that are not fully vaccinated should not participate. Check with your veterinarian first.
- Be sure you and your dog are conditioned for this event, especially if you plan to hike.
