Big Day Out For Dogs

Big Day Out for Dogs Humans Welcome
Why should humans have all the fun? DOGS Victoria are once again holding their annual "Big Day Out For Dogs".

With a huge variety of activities, there is something not only for your pooch, but for the whole family. Last years Canine Christmas Market had over 40 stalls and this year is looking to be just as impressive. With hand crafted products, health services and information, treats of all kinds, furniture and spa products for pampering to name just a few of the stalls, you will go away with a wealth of information and inspiration.

Showdogs will be demonstrating and competing in sports like obedience, lure coursing, herding, agility and dog showing, and just so your dog doesn't feel left out, why not enter them in the fun competitions open to the public, such as "the best trick", "the happiest dog" or the always popular "dog and owner lookalike" competition!

Members of DOGS Victoria will be available to answer your questions about specific breeds or to help you find the perfect dog for you and your families lifestyle.

Make sure you do not miss the Canine Art Competition, with some of the artwork being for sale. You might just find the perfect Christmas gift for a dog lover. The Canine Museum will also be open. Here you will find items dating back to the early 1800's. It really is a fascinating place to explore.

And not forgetting us humans, you will find hot and cold refreshments onsite, or you are welcome to bring a picnic. There will also be face painting and jumping castles for the children!

Fun for all the family (except the cat!)

All dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.

Entry is FREE and the event is open from 10.30am-4.00pm
