Pooches in the Park

Don’t leave your fur-child out of your Pride celebrations – enter your doggie companion in the Pooches in the Park Dog Show and have the chance to win great prizes!

Hosted by S&Ms Scotty & Mal with the support of Nose2tail Doggy Daycare, the Pooches in the Park Dog Competition promises to be a fun-filled fiesta of our furry friends.

No dog is too big or small to win your heart, so bring your mighty mongrel or pampered pup and show them off to the community.
