Welcome Guest

DOGGYWOOD AT FAIR DAY

WELCOME TO DOGGYWOOD!

       Proudly supported by

A much-loved free favourite event at Mardi Gras Fair Day, DOGGYWOOD returns to Victoria Park on Sunday 17 February. The annual celebration of our furry friends brings together dogs, dog owners and dog fans for a day full of fun, activities, shows, contests and prizes.

As every dog-owner knows, our dogs are so much more than pets. They’re our fur-kids, our family, and our best friends. So it’s only fitting that we give our four-legged companions the celebration they deserve at Doggywood.

This year, Doggywood will have its very own big top, The Arena. From 10am-2pm, The Arena will play host to spectacular Mardi-Gras themed dog shows by The Wonderdogs, and the now-famous Doggywood Pageants where cute canines will contest the title of Best Dressed, Most Talented and Best In Show.

REGISTER HERE for the Fearless Doggy Pageants and stay up to date on all things Doggywood!

You can also register in person/pooch on the day. Registration times are 10-10:30am & 11:30am-Midday.

You and your best fur friend can also take an Insta-worthy snap to rival any Kylie Jenner post at the Hush Puppies photo booth. And check out or dog-themed stallholders with a range of pooch products & services on offer.

FEARLESS DOGGYWOOD PAGEANTS

They’re pimped out in extravagant outfits and strut their stuff on the dogwalk, hoping to be seen. But it’s not a scene from Real Housewives of Sydney, it’s the battle for the coveted titles of Best Dressed, Most Talented and Best In Show at Doggywood.

Thank you to the following people and businesses for donating Doggywood pageant prizes: Hush Puppies, Animalyser, Dogue, Doggone Gorgeous, Dr Katrina Warren, Bito Dog Treats, 100% Natural Dog Treats, Rover Pet Products.

BEST DRESSED
Who doesn’t love the sight of a dog dressed as a taco? The cuter and crazier the better, but our judges will also be on the look-out for entrants who think outside the box. Best fur-do? What about a matchy-matchy lookalike between owner and pup? Those in need of inspiration can find some inspired ideas here!

MOST TALENTED
If Rex can carry a higher note than you ever will or howl in perfect sync with the Top 40, then the category of Most Talented is for your best fur-friend. Time to show off your dog’s flair and wow our judges with some doggy dancing, jumping or any kind of cool trick.

BEST IN SHOW
Only the best of the best will make it through to this category, so make sure you bring your friends and their friends along. Our highly scientific Doggywood Clapometer will be hard at work to determine Doggywood’s most coveted Best In Show.

WONDERDOGS SHOWS
Celebrity vet Dr Katrina Warren and the inspiring team of talented Border Collies have stared in countless TV commercials and have worked around the country, performing as 'The Wonderdogs' on stages all over Australia. These dogs really bring the “wonder” into their name Wonderdogs. Marvel as they perform amazing tricks, comedy antics, dance and achieve incredible feats of agility and skill. Make sure you arrive early to get a front row seat for the 10.30am and 12.00pm shows.

HUSH PUPPIES PHOTOBOOTH
But first, let me take a selfie! This year Hush Puppies will be bringing their famous kennel for that much-needed Insta-worthy snap. The Doggywood Hush Puppies Photobooth will be open for glamour pooch photography (complete with Instagram frames) from 10am-6pm.
