Dogs on Deck

Ahoy dog-loving-boat-people! Leash up your furry first mate and head to our CenturyLink Field location on Thursday, January 30th for Dogs on Deck! Your dog(s) can stroll the red carpets with you, take in some new smells, meet other dogs, and make a custom dog tag with our on-site engraving machine. As an added bonus, all dogs get to take home a WagBag featuring a collapsible water bowl, frisbee, bag dispenser, and a treat! (pickup at the Dogs on Deck booth, West #80).


Plus, arrive after 5pm for Yappy Hour and take home a dog lifevest courtesy of Connelly Watersports!*

*Free Lifejackets limited to first 60 dogs entering after 5pm at CenturyLink Field Event Center Concourse, East, and West show entrances. While supplies last. Size preference not guaranteed. 

Want to see your dog on the cover of 48° North?

 Does your dog have what it takes to be America’s… er 48° North’s next super model? Does he/she strut down the dock like it’s a runway? Turn heads everywhere you go? Have the temperament to put up with the pup-arazzi? 

If you are paws-itive that your dog has what it takes, or even if you aren’t, stop by the Dogs on Deck photo booth in north end of the West Hall, Booth #80, on Thursday January 30. Have some fun with the props. We guarantee you’ll howl (ok, we’re done with the puns now, we promise!) with laughter.

The winning dog will be featured on the cover of a springtime issue of 48° North devoted to pets on board. Registration forms will be available at the photo booth, and sharing your pooch’s photo booth prowess on social media may be used as a tiebreaker.

The 48° North casting directors will judge based on:
• Unique appearance – salty, sweet, or both?
• Best use of props
• Nautical costume or safety attire
• “It” factor
