Published on 14 March 2017

Dress your dog like a rocker on Sunday 26 March and you could be a winner!

Ku-ring-gai Council’s annual Dogs Day Out event for dogs and their owners at St Ives Showground will have everyone rocking!

The fun begins at 10am on Sunday 26 March at the Showground, going through until 3pm with a packed line up of events and activities.

This year's event theme is ‘The Dog’s Got Talent’ and dog owners are encouraged to dress their dogs up in rock star-inspired costumes for the much anticipated Best Dressed Pet competition.

There will be doggie races throughout the day for little dogs, big dogs, slow dogs and athletic dogs, plus prizes for competitions such as best trick, biggest catch, best collar / leash, cutest puppy, best bitza and dog/owner look alike.

Other highlights include presentations by renowned dog trainer Steve Austin and animal behaviourist Dr Jo Righetti, with training performances by the Northern Suburbs Dog Training Club.

Dogs Day Out stallholders are the ‘Who’s Who’ of the pet world. Animal rescue and welfare societies will be available to discuss any issues with your pets or potentially match you with your next family pet. Vets will also be in attendance to talk about pet health matters.

This event is a chance to stock up on speciality items for your fur baby, with a whole range of pet products and accessories on display.

Head down early for your chance to grab one of the show bags offered to the first 500 dog owners, which will include treats, flyers, dog poo bags and a free colourful dog leash!

Bring your own picnic lunch or enjoy some of the great food our stallholders are offering. To keep the kids happy, there will be free face painting and other entertainment.
