Celebrate our canine community and join in the fun and games under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. There's food, live music, market stalls, dog demonstrations (including Dr Katrina & the Wonderdogs), entertainment and activities for fur residents and their human companions to enjoy. Feast your eyes on the dancing dogs, a fantastic sport where dogs perform moves to a selection of music. They'll perform choreographed routines showcasing fantastic tricks. Jackson the Dancing Poodle and his younger brother Swayze will be performing. Jackson has performed on Australia's Got Talent and has had many other appearances on TV.
Sydney Psychos Flyball Team will also be returning, which is an exciting sport for dogs and their owners to participate in, plus there'll be some demonstrations in the Dogs on Show Arena. Get up close and poochey with Nala. Nala is a Shar Pei and loves to play on the beach with her twin sister Lulu. She's also a registered therapy dog and visits Northside Health Clinic in Cremorne every Wednesday night.
Nala loves kids, but hates bath time. Nala is the Ambassadog for this year, but Kiki is Brandfield Bark's first ever Diplocat! A five month old rescued ginger cat, she's smart, curious and able to walk on a leash, give paw and stand on two legs. She's a little scared of kids, but loves dogs and often tries to open doors around the house. You'll meet other special pooches at the event, so keep an eye out for updates.
Most of all, don't forget those dollar donations as it raises much-needed funds for the Sydney Dogs & Cats Home, a not-for-profit pound and re-homing facility. There's also a raffle on the day.
