Dog Olympics 2017 Newcastle - April 23

The second annual Dog Olympics hosted by Fletcher Veterinary Practice will be held in Islington Park, Newcastle on Sunday 23rd April, 2017.

This fun-filled family day was created not only to raise funds for the hard-working, dedicated organisation Hunter Animal Watch but also to offer a great day out with your dog.

The day will be filled with market stalls, raffles, a BBQ and of course the now famous doggie Olympic competitions! 

The organisers encourage doggy fancy dress, wild colours and crazy hairdos - especially for the celebrity look-a-like competition.

Dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes are invited to participate in various athletic and non-athletic competitions, such as:

  • Musical Hoops
  • Best Trick
  • Celebrity Look Alike Competition
  • Fetching Frisbees
  • Creative Paintings and more!

Come on down and have a ball during the April school holidays. The organisers would love to see you and your talented pooch there!

Where: Islington Park, 151 Maitland Road, Islington, NSW, 2296
