Bring out your dogs! The popular Inglewood Night Markets Dog Parade is set to enter its fourth year with Channel Nine and 6PR personality Carmen Braidwood set to put the dogs through their paces on Monday, March 2.
The light-hearted dog parade in the heart of the Inglewood Monday Night Markets at the Town Square, in front of the Inglewood Library on Beaufort Street, are always popular with dog lovers and visitors to the markets. And organisers are calling for pet owners with cute dogs to enter them in the parade.
Braidwood had her first taste of the Inglewood dog parade on the judging panel at the last show held in November, but this time the Destination WA presenter and 6PR Weekend Breakfast presenter will take on the role of MC.

On the judging panel will be band leader and drummer for Soul and R&B band The Milford Street Shakers, Dom D'Leno; Maylands MLA and anti-puppy farming campaigner, Lisa Baker; and WAtoday journalist and passionate dog lover Hannah Barry.
Channel Nine will set up its roving news desk at the markets where people can have their photographs taken. The WA Shar Pei Protection group will also be bringing along some of the dogs from the rescue group which are looking for new homes.

The dogs will be paraded at the Inglewood Town Square in front of the library on the corner of Beaufort Street and Tenth Avenue, Inglewood from 6.15pm.
Last year, around 25 well-behaved dogs and their owners paraded before the judges handed out the top prize to Odie, who will be coming back to say hi to the judges and other contestants.
This year's prizes will be a $100 voucher from the Bedford Dianella Vet Centre for the winner, a $50 voucher from FurBaby Boutique & Café for second and a $20 voucher to spend at the Treat Truck at the Inglewood Night Markets for third.
Dress up or not, with or without tricks, all well behaved dogs are welcome to enter. Picture: Rebecca Stone
