I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
Dogs Have Fun Too
There are lots of dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes that live and come to Port Melbourne. And on the 28th October, they will all be there to howl (well not too loudly) for Howl-o-ween.
Last year, 300 pooches and their owners descended, in costume, to Port Melbourne Bay Street for Port's HOWL-O- Ween, embarking on the biggest Doggy Trick or Treat ever seen.
So if you have a dog, register him or her, find, buy or make a costume and come down on the 28th ready to Bay Street, Port Melbourne, to party and be part of this howling, fun event. If you would like to register for your particular dog club then just get 10 dogs together and qualify for a Club Registration.
On the day, you can dress your dog in a costume for a chance to enter into competitions and win prizes. There will be doggy bags and market stalls, all with goodies, especially for your canine friend. Your kids will have fun too with a special children's trick or treat trail. Here is the program for the day:
Guide dogs, (also known as service animals, assistance animals or colloquially as seeing eye dogs), are assistance dogs trained to lead blind and visually impaired people around obstacles. Guide Dogs Victoria is based in Kew, where around 135 puppies are nursed each year. It costs in excess of $30,000 to fully train a Guide Dog, so every dollar raised helps. So come and support this very worthy organisation and let your dog have some Halloween fun.
