Cross Creek Mutt Strut

The Cross Creek Ranch Welcome Center is calling all dogs, pooches, mutts, and furry companions to come frolic at the Cross Creek Ranch Mutt Strut from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 13. All dogs and their favorite owners are invited to this free event. Come raise the ‘woof’ at Cross Creek Ranch and let your furry friends mingle and play at this human-friendly event for dogs. Come early: the first 100 pups will receive a free “wag bag” full of all sorts of dog-friendly goodies.

The Mutt Strut offers an afternoon full of fun and play for all of your family members, regardless of if they walk on two legs or four. The Cross Creek Mutt Strut will include a pup peanut butter eating contest, a Mutt Strut costume contest, performances and demos by the Houston Disc Dogs, a dog-friendly photo booth, a bounce house, games, and more. There will even be a special appearance by the Fulshear Police Department’s K9, Belle. Food trucks will also be on hand, so it’s a great event for the whole family, humane and canine, to enjoy!

Check out the full schedule of events below:

  • Registration and Check-In – 11:00 – 11:30
  • Mutt Strutt Dog Walk Begins – 11:30 – not a timed race, so whenever your pup finishes! Everyone receives Mutt Strut bandana (11:30 – approx 12:30)
  • Houston Disc Dogs – 1st performance 12:30 – 1:00 – 30-minute show with 15-minute meet and greet afterward (12:30 – 1:15)
  • Costume Contest – 1:30 – 2:00
  • Peanut Butter Eating Contest 2:00 – 2:30 
  • Houston Disc Dogs – 2nd performance 2:30 – 3:00 – 30 minute show with 15 minute meet and greet afterwards (2:30 – 3:15) – This makes it go over 3:00 but not by much – will that work, or should we try to shorten the contests?)
  • Pet Adoptions – 11:00 – 3:00
  • DJ, Food Trucks, Kids Games – 11:00 – 3:00

Prospective dog owners or current dog owners looking for a new companion for their furry friends can take advantage of the Mutt Strutt’s on-site pet adoption. Admission to the Mutt Strut is free and open to the public, but a suggested donation of either $10 to Fort Bend PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) or an item to the Fort Bend Animal Shelter is requested. With that $10 donation that goes directly to Fort Bend PAWS, you and your dog will be entered into a raffle for a year of free pet grooming!  We will also have adoptable pets onsite from Fort Bend Animal Services.

While this is a dog-focused event, safety is the first priority. All pets at the Mutt Strut must be on a leash.

While you are there, make sure to visit the Welcome Center and observation tower! Get a bird’s eye view of Fulshear and Cross Creek Ranch! Also, make sure to visit our model homes. There are a total of 22 model homes in Cross Creek Ranch ranging in price from $200s-$1 million. There is something for everyone in Cross Creek Ranch!

The Cross Creek Ranch Mutt Strut will be held on Saturday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cross Creek Ranch Welcome Center, 6450 Cross Creek Bend Lane, Fulshear, Texas, 77441. For more information visit the event’s official website.
