Texas Pet Tour w/ ZilkerBark + H-E-B

Texas Pet Tour w/ ZilkerBark + H-E-B

Texas dog lovers, we've got some great news! ZilkerBark and H-E-B are teaming up to provide you with the Dog party of your dreams! The #HEBTXPetTour will be an opportunity for you to get a high-quality digital portrait of your dog in one of THREE custom made, Texas-themed photo sets. There will also be an interactive dog challenge zone and an H-E-B experience packed with treats and selfie stations!

The best thing about this event? It's an appreciation party! To show how much we appreciate the Austin dog community, this event is 100% free to attend. But, in an effort to give back, we are asking for a donation of $10 for each portrait spot. That $10 will go to support an amazing organization called Service Dogs Inc.

Why Service Dogs Inc? Service Dogs Inc is an organization who sources and trains shelter dogs to be service animals for wounded veterans and others living with disabilities. Some of their dogs also help provide emotional support to abused children during court hearings. Needless to say, they're an organization worth supporting!

About the Event

The event will essentially be a dog party! The Austin event is our first of three events and it takes place on Sunday, May 19th at Mueller's Lake Park.

There will be four entertainment areas at the event:

1. Portrait Area
2. Interactive Dog Challenge Zone
3. H-E-B Treat Sample Area w/ Selfie Stations
4. Food trucks

How to Participate

The event is open to the public and free to attend. The only cost will be food, and a donation for dog portraits. If you’d like to reserve a portrait spot for your dog, here are a few details you’ll need to know!

The Details:
--Portrait spots require a $10 donation
--That purchase will include one digital file of your pet and one-time slot during the event
-- Each dog will have between 1-3 minutes on "stage." This is plenty of time to get a few great shots of your dog!
--We will only be photographing one dog per portrait spot, so if you have multiple dogs you must purchase multiple spots! No exceptions!

PORTRAIT EVENT FAQ

- How much is a portrait and what will we get for it?

Portraits are $10 each and each dog will have just a couple of minutes to grab the perfect shot. Each purchase will include a digital file for your printing needs.

- Can I be in the photo with my dog?

No. Sorry, these photo sets will not have the physical space to accompany a person.

- Can I bring a pet that is not a dog?

Yes, but please keep in mind that there will be many, MANY, dogs around. It might not be the best environment for a cat, but we did have a pig show up one year who photographed beautifully!

- Can I have more than one dog in a photo?

No, sorry!

- How and when will I receive the photo of my dog?

Photos will be sent 2-3 days after the event to the email that you signed up with. Photos will be available for digital download, the process is quite simple!

- Where can I park?

Head to The Thinkery garage within the Mueller center; there will be parking in that garage and the nearby lot, right next to our event setup.

- How can I make sure my dog does the best they can do?

GREAT QUESTION, and thanks for asking! ;) The answer is simple: exercise your dog(s) before you come, arrive early to allow your dog to become comfortable with the environment, practice "Sit" and "Stay" in a busy environment! Lastly, and most importantly, if your dog has dog or people reactivity concerns, please communicate this to us in advance! We'll do our best to get you in before the event begins. Please do not jeopardize the experience of others by bringing a reactive dog to the event. We are VERY well versed in the ways of the dog and want to make sure your dog's experience is a success!

- How can I have a great time?

Come excited! Be patient! And most importantly, be responsible for your pet. This means keeping your dog on leash, being prepared with poop bags and being respectful of those around you. Sometimes dogs can be ill behaved, it happens; please do not let your dog's behavior impact the experience of others.
