The dog days of summer have everyone, including pets, looking to cool off.That’s why Unleashed by Petco is trucking in snow to Reston Town Center on Saturday, Aug. 23. Pets can frolic like it is February at an enclosed off-leash area.Unleashed’s Reston store held  smaller version of the snow day in the parking lot at Hunters Woods in 2013. Moving to RTC will better accommodate more dogs.There will be areas for big dogs and small dogs, as well as family friendly events and animals for adoption.The snow day will run from 9 a.m. until the snow melts. Admission is free. Limited numbers of dogs can enter the pen at one time.
