Take your dog along to one of these events
Dogs and humans love to do things together! This list will give you an idea of some of the events that you can go to and take your good friend along also.

The DOGGY DINNER DATE will be held on 17th November 2019 at 5.30 pm. The venue will be the Dog House, 195 Johnston Street, Collingwood.

The Doghouse will be hosting a 3-course doggy dinner evening bonanza and all the dogs will be getting a choice of an entree, main and dessert. And furthermore, all these meals will be made by a chef! This chef has been one now for about 20 years, and he will be serving all the meals just exactly like you would get them if you were at a cafe or restaurant. All the food will be human grade and dog-friendly.

There is going to be a best-dressed competition and also a prize for the best hairstyle, so make sure you have your hairbrush and other things to do this part well!

The 3-course dinner is going to cost $35, and they will also have some awesome human options available as well. For bookings, please call the organisers on 9417-4253
