“Following the success of our 2016 events and as self-confessed crazy dog ladies, we are so excited to be bringing Paws at the Park to Mudgeeraba Showgrounds” said Jenna Schroeder, co-founder of Paws and the Park and owner of Doggie Tea

The event prides itself on offering a variety of unique products, services and activities which has contributed to its popularity and is largely due to its small business focus, providing a platform for small local businesses to showcase their products alongside national brands at a fun and interactive event that is a great day out for pooches and their owners. 

"Large pet expo events are often not attainable for small and hobby businesses to attend due to cost and there is also a strong demand from the community for more free pet friendly events

We saw the need for a community and small business focused event and the response has been overwhelming from both stallholder and attendees who love all of the unique products and services on offer - from doggie icecream and tea, organic food, pet pampering and stylish accessories to acupuncture, pet minding and even a wedding pet chauffeur service to ensure your fur baby can be part of your special day" said Lia Ferguson co-founder of Paws and the Park and owner of Oodle&Co.

“We received so much positive feedback from both stallholders and the community from our last event so we can't wait for everyone to see what we have on offer this year, it is set to be an amazing doggie day out" said Jenna.

The August event will also feature some exciting new activities including flower crown classes, the ultimate insta-worthy accessory for pups and their owners, by Eden the Flower Shop and ‘doga’ – a fun and interactive yoga class by Hot Tropical Yoga with both raising funds for the event’s charity partner, Animal Welfare League Qld.

The event also attracts some of the social media stars of the dog world including 2017 Cleo Bachelor of the year and rescue advocate, Ryan Anderson (@aussiedogguy) who will be meeting and greeting his canine and human fans.

Paws at the Park is presented by RACQ who have been helping Queenslanders for over a century and understand that our furry friends are more than a pet, they are part of the family.

Attendees will also be treated to free doughnuts courtesy of sponsor, Krispy Kreme, who will be giving away over one thousand original glazed doughnuts® to lucky attendees. 

When: Saturday 5th August 2017, from 9:00am to 1:00pm

Where: Mudgeeraba Showground, 115 Mudgeeraba Rd, Mudgeeraba QLD 4213
