This is an animal treat truck!

Bring along your best mate to Leeman's Landing for a special morning out just for dogs. Your pooch can have a $10 dog wash while you shop from some unique dog-only stalls!

After a run down at the dog beach, your best friend can share a cold one with his friends at the bone bar, while you enjoy a coffee, ice cream or something delish from the food vendors.

Basics of dog body language
Enrichment games and toys

Do you have an aggressive or reactive dog?

If so, Perth will be hosting the first ever Animal Training Symposium in March 2018 and this promises to be one of the biggest events to be offered in Australia.

It is a one-day seminar which will be hosted by John McGuigan - The Glasgow Dog Trainer (Scotland) and it is for both dog owners, professionals, groomers, rangers and trainers.

John is a qualified dog trainer and instructor for The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT), who also runs a successful dog training business and gives workshops throughout the US, and Europe.

John has a particular gift and interest in dealing with aggressive and reactive dogs and has a very high success rate in this field.

Despite the title of this fast growing sport, it has nothing to do with dancing but is all about music!

If you are able to walk with your dog, you can enjoy heel-work to music. If you like listening to music and love spending time with your best friend, then this is the sport for you.

There are two sections, one is heel-work to music which is the dog heeling, but not just on the left side of the handler as is done in traditional obedience, but by the handlers right side, in front of the handler, behind the handler, and going either backwards or forwards. If your dog's head stays fairly close to your leg, it is regarded as heeling.

The other section is freestyle, and in this section dogs will learn a variety of moves including spins, weaving through the handler's legs, backing, bowing and many other moves.

You can join a regular class and for this, it is important to have treats and toys and it will be lots of fun.

Bark For Life is a dog-friendly community walk event celebrating the invaluable support our dogs provide during a "cancer experience".

It's a great chance to get together with family, friends and your dog(s) to celebrate cancer survivors, patients and carers and to remember those who lost their fight. Plus by getting involved, you'll be helping to fund vital research and provide much-needed support services for WA families who are affected by cancer.

This will be on Sunday, 18th March 2018, from 8:00 am to 11:30 am at Market Square, Subiaco, and more details can be found here, and tickets available here.

Parrot training will be held in April,2018, and this Training Academy Workshop Series allows you to choose the level you would like to start at and the level you want to advance to.

These are run at Murdoch University only twice per year and are designed to suit a range of different skill levels from first-time companion parrot owners, to those who work with animals professionally such as behaviour consultants, keepers and those that work in the veterinary professions. You can even apply to bring your bird along with you.

You can book by emailing: or you can see more information here.

This event is to raise funds for the Shenton Park Dog Refuge, and you can bring your dog for a night at the movies!

They are trying to break the world record for Largest Dog Grooming Lesson. There will also be dog themed markets, doggie mocktails and free dog spaghetti with your movie ticket purchase. And we haven't forgotten humans - you will have Italian food vendors!

After that, come and sit down and relax in front of the Lady and the Tramp movie from 7:30 pm, and this is being held at the Maylands Sport Centre, 50 Clarkson Road, Maylands, on Saturday 3rd February at 5.30 pm.

You can book here.

This is an unusual event in order to raise money for a dog shelter.

Some of the volunteers at Dogs Behind Bars have agreed to spend a night sleeping in a kennel with a dog in need! On 17th February, Danzalin Kennels & Cattery will open its doors to these volunteers and their sleeping bags. They will spend the entire evening in a kennel with their sponsored pup and all proceeds raised will go towards supporting more dogs who need help!
