Your four legged friends are not forgotten and there will be a range of dog friendly activities available in the off-leash area. The pawfect place for playing with new doggy friends and having a howling good time. If you have a new pet, you can also have them microchipped at the event.

The lure course gives your dog the opportunity to do what comes naturally - to run, chase, sniff and jump. Regardless of the breed or size of your dog, they will be able to happily run around and enjoy themselves in a safe environment.

•Interactive dog training games
Run by Beach Pup, these games are great for dogs to develop their skills and increase the bond with their owners, and for owners to see the fun side of training.

•The Council's Animal Management Team will be onsite to provide Greater Dandenong's residents dogs and cats with a free microchipping service if you also register your pets on the day.
