This year's pooch fest is set to be bigger and better than last year, with an eclectic hub of activities lined up to get the crowd howling...with laughter at the cuteness!
TV presenter Lara Shannon will host the inaugural pooch gathering, ready to take over Barkly Square on 28 May from 10am - 3pm. Lara will be joined by star of stage David Pidd, who will be filming for her new Ten Digital show 'Pooches at Play' on the day.
The canine commotions will include:
Doggie match-making from Dog Share for helping your pooch find the perfect park partner
Awkward Portraits for dogs
Dog walking by Tom and Captain as well as puppy training tips and advice
A pug race, oh yes!
A pooch parade, which this year sees the addition of a new category "Fastest Pug" to its 10 categories including Most Obedient, Best Costume and Dog and Owner Look-Alike and more.
Canine Wellness Kitchen food truck will be on site to feed the furry masses.
Competitions, pop-up stalls, live music & entertainment, workshops and more.
