Who said you can't have a howling good time at home? North Sydney Council's annual Bradfield Bark event is going online this Sunday 21 June 2020 for the paw-fect day in.
Now in its fifth year, there's never been a better time to celebrate the canine companions and furry friends who have been keeping their owners entertained during the long stretches at home.
North Sydney Mayor Jilly Gibson said our four-legged friends make an important contribution to our community. "There are a lot of health and social benefits to having a dog or cat as part of your family. Knowing how much locals love Bradfield Bark, we decided that even with coronavirus restrictions the show must go on!"
The event will go live on Facebook and www.bradfieldbark.com at 10.30am, with a bonanza of activities and a virtual Mutt and Meow Market. Hosted by media veterinarian Dr Katrina, there will be demonstrations, canine COVID advice, DIY homemade treats, a talk about cat behaviour and information on how to recycle your dog's fur.
There will also be fun pet trivia and other games for participants to enjoy with their pooch (with great prizes to be won). Public voting will be open for the finalists in the best dressed pooch and funniest pet video categories.
The event will conclude with some live Q&A sessions with Dr Katrina and pet experts Sharon from Bark Busters and Renae from Sydney Dogs and Cats Home.
For a preview of what's to come, North Sydney Council will be posting a video of DOGA (Dog Yoga) with the Rancan Sisters this Friday on the Facebook event page.
