Animal rescue and welfare societies will be available to discuss any issues you may have with your pets or potentially match you with your next family pet. Vets will also be in attendance to talk about pet health matters.

There will also be free face painting and entertainment for the kids. Bring your own picnic lunch or enjoy some of the great food our stallholders have to offer.

This event is also your chance to stock up on items for your pooch with a whole range of pet products and accessories on display. Dogs Day Out stallholders are the ‘Who’s Who’ of the pet industry.
