Arguably Canberra's biggest doggie event of the year, A Pooch Affair is back in 2018 for bigger and better things! Partnering with RSPCA ACT, this year's event is bound to be a good one, providing you with a whole day's worth of fun. This year's "A Pooch Affair" is held on Saturday 16th June from 10am all the way to 4pm, and is located in the Exhibition Park - this indoor venue means that the show will definitely go on, be it rain, hail, or shine!
For those wishing to dine with their pooch in style, check out their High Tea with Dogs! This unique dining experience allows you to get dressed up in your best outfits (following this year's theme of denim & diamonds). There is a Best Dressed Competition - so it's time to start planning the pawfect outfit! Hoomans can indulge in packages including a selection of both sweet and savoury treats, champagne, coffee, and a range of teas, whereas pooches enjoy gourmet treats from Pupcake Bakery, puppiccinos from L'Barkery, and a takeaway doggie treat bag. Bookings are essential - numbers are limited for each session and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Click here to find out more information.
There will also be:
Two breed play areas, providing 24 different play sessions for pooches big and small
The Doggie Mall provides retail relief for all the pawrents looking for an extra special treat, or accessories following the most up-to-date trends. There are three sections to the Doggie Mall; Retail Exhibitors, Not-For-Profit & Community Groups, and Animal Rescue Groups.
Once you've shopped till you've dropped, don't forget to relax in the Doggie Diner and enjoy a L'Barkery Paw Blonde Doggie Beer, Barkeraide, Puppiccino, or a refreshing pooch sundae. And finally, don't forget to cement a wonderful day's worth of memories by snapping some cute photos for Instagram at their Paws & Pose Photobooth!
With so much fun to be had, it'd be a waste for you and your pooch to miss out. So hurry up and save the date, because you don't want to look back and regret not having gone!
