Floriade Superhero Dogs’ Day Out 2018 - October 14

Floriade welcomes pooches big and small for this year’s Superhero Dogs’ Day Out on Sunday 14th October.

Bring your dog to soak up the spring sunshine and explore the final day of Floriade with special pup friendly activities! Stage 88 will be bursting with dog-related exhibitors, demonstrations, competitions and activities for dogs and their owners to enjoy such as Doga in the Park with Flow Yoga as well as the Making Dogs Happy workshop in The Greenhouse hosted by Karen Viggers (11:30am to 12:30pm).

See how amazing our four-legged friends are with demonstrations by Four Paws Sports and local Canberra Dog Clubs on Dog Bar High Jump, Flyball, K9 Disc and Dancing with Dogs. Or if you’re looking to learn a bit more about your pupper, see demonstrations on having fun with your dog and synchronised obedience. Make sure to check out the Creative Grooming Showcase as well!
If you would like to get in on the action but don’t have your own dog, you can have a meet and greet with some ACT Animal Rescue Groups. Who knows, you might even leave Floriade with a dog of your own!

Plus it’s not just a day for the dogs! With a pop culture twist, dress your doggos, puppers, woofers, floofers and yappers in the best superhero costume and you could find yourself in the running for the 'Best Dressed' Award. And if you’re feeling a little jealous, why not dress up alongside your four-legged BFF, grab a photo at the Superhero Photo Booth or sit back and relax at the Pooch Café!

It’s sure to be a pawsome day, so don’t miss out.
