We are celebrating our 10th birthday next year so will be re-imagining the 2024 event to present the biggest and best festival ever staged and to do this we have relocated to Victoria’s most pet-friendly venue at the Melbourne Showgrounds.
The Festival will be overflowing with puppy love as dog enthusiasts from all corners of Melbourne, Victoria and across Australia descend one what will be one of the grandest dog-dedicated festivals in the world on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October
Get set to experience a much bigger offering of K9-inspired education, entertainment and inspiration with a special focus on our new Dog Sport Spectacular that will leave you howling with excitement!
