Dogs Day Out and Coastal Dog Walk
16/03/2017 8:05:42 AM
The City of Joondalup Dogs Day Out Festival returns to Lexcen Park, Ocean Reef on Sunday 26 March.
Now in its fourth year, the 2017 Dogs Day Out promises to be the biggest and best yet with the addition of a Coastal Dog Walk to an already packed program of events and activities for dogs of all shapes and sizes (as well as their proud owners).
The annual festival runs from 9.00am-1.00pm but prior to it commencing, owners can take their four-legged friend on a leisurely 3.2km walk, starting and finishing at Lexcen Park and taking in some of the City’s spectacular coastal sites along the way.
Check in for the walk is at 7.30am for an 8.00am start. Registrations are essential and can be done online at joondalup.wa.gov.au until 20 March.
Dogs Day Out activities include:
-Market stalls and exhibitions offering the latest dog products and services;
-Obedience training tips and tricks;
-Behavioural and agility demonstrations;
-Competitions, including the best-dressed dog and best dog tricks and dog grooming.
City Rangers will also be on hand to answer dog-related questions and there will be food and drinks and free doggie bags on offer (while stock lasts).
Free micro-chipping will be available to the first 50 City of Joondalup residents in attendance, courtesy of WA Pet Project.
Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said the Dogs Day Out was one of the must attend events of the year for local dog owners and their animals.
“There could be no better place to hold an event of this nature given that Joondalup is home to approximately 22,000 registered dogs and has long been regarded as a dog friendly City,” he said.
“This annual family-friendly celebration of man's best friend brings people and their pets from across the Perth metropolitan area to one of the City’s most picturesque parks for a day of fun demonstrations, learning and socialising.
“The inaugural Coastal Dog Walk is a great addition to the program of events, showcasing the City’s stunning coastline to dog walkers, many of whom will be travelling from outside the northern corridor to take part in all the fun and festivities.”
The 2017 Dogs Day Out Festival is sponsored by Mars Petcare, Vetwest Animal Hospitals, Joondalup Weekender and WA Pet Project.
