The dog festival is scheduled to run for three days starting on Oct. 3. Organizers in Jindo, located off the coast of South Jeolla Province in southwestern Korea, will host various events for visitors. These include dog training classes and canine therapy sessions on top of the usual dog show program to select an overall winner.
Jindo dogs have been designated as the 53rd national treasure of Korea and were recognized by the World Canine Organization in 2005.
Given the poor treatment these "treasures" are given around here, it's clear the training classes are needed. I'm sure these neglected animals will appreciate the therapy, too.
