High Tea with Dogs is just one of the attractions at Territory Venues' inaugural dog event, A Pooch Affair on Saturday 18th July at Exhibition Park in Mitchell. Its Official Charity Partner is the RSPCA who will be there with an information stand outlining their services, merchandise for purchase and a Come and Try area where attendees can take their dogs through an agility course.

This event is looking to showcase the variety of activities and services available in Canberra and adjoining regions for dog owners and prospective dog owners. Featuring entertainment and information sessions, demonstrations and of course the opportunity for some doggie-related retail therapy and pampering, it promises to be a fun day out for all.

While the event is indoors (a good plan given Canberra's usually chilly Winter weather) a "Doggy Powder Room" will be available for your pet's convenience outdoors. See the FAQs for useful information should you be planning to bring your dog along.

Tickets are available at the gate. There will be various food options available for both humans and dogs, however if you wish to attend the High Tea experience, you'll need to book quickly as spaces are limited. See their website, FAQs and the event's Facebook page for the latest information.


Free parking including accessible parking is available at Exhibition Park and in the Flemington Road car park opposite the main entry.
