A favourite pets' day out, known as Bradfield Bark, is now ! and in a new location - St Leonards Park, North Sydney. Bring your furbaby along to walk the grass carpet that will be rolled out for the first time. This bone-anza day of furry fun is on Sunday 23 May from 9.30am to 2.30pm.

The day will be packed with dog demonstrations, expert talks, Doga (dog yoga), food stalls and free kids activities. Also, a Mutt & Meow Market, live music and much more for both dogs and owners to enjoy.

With so many activities to enjoy, your dog will be spoilt for choice. Highlights are a K9 Ninja challenge; trick off by Farmer Dave and his Ruffrack crew, a show by Dr Katrina Warren and her Wonderdogs and a demonstration by Steve Austin with his conservation dogs.

Even more fun will be prizes to be won for the best-dressed pet, best trick and look-alike competition of owners and pets. Also, in support of charity partner Sydney Dogs & Cats Home, look out for the treat guessing competition and raffle. Show your support for this worthy cause and buy raffle tickets.

Is your furbaby photogenic? Well, look for the pop-up photo booth set up by event sponsor, Pet Medical Milsons Point, where you can have a free magnet of the photos taken.

Mayor Jilly Gibson said, "Now in its sixth year, our annual pets' day out remains a calendar highlight which brings the whole community together. Knowing how much our locals love this event, we held a digital version last June during the height of COVID-19, which was really well received. We're not able to hold the event in Bradfield Park this year because of Harbour Bridge maintenance works, but we didn't want to cancel the live event for a second year so we've moved it to St Leonards Park which is walking distance for most of our residents."

This event is not just for dog owners, it's for all animal lovers and you can still come along if you don't have a dog. The whole park will be filled with events to suit everyone.

Mayor Gibson also said, "As always, Council has selected some canines from the community to be our Ambassadogs. Our Ambassadogs are Nellie the Corgi, Gladys the greyhound and rescue pupper Barkimedes, who are all already familiar with St Leonards Park. Our Dilpocat is Maxim Louis Vat, a Bengal cat who also enjoys walks in the park with his owner."

Be sure to keep an eye out for the full schedule on North Sydney's event page on Facebook.

This event follows a Safe Outdoor Gathering COVID-19 Safety Plan. More information on North Sydney Council website.
