Dog Lovers Festival Sydney

Saturday 24 - Sunday 25 August

Sydney will be filled with puppy love this August!

Sydney will be filled with puppy love on the 24 & 25 of August, 2024, as dog lovers from across Sydney, NSW and around Australia descend on possibly the greatest dog-dedicated festival in the world!

What can you expect to experience across the fur-filled weekend?

  • Experience talented dogs jumping, diving, weaving, frisbee-ing, flyballing & flying (or just in need of a loving, forever home!) including herding, hunting, hounds, terriers, mastiffs, spitz, toys and gun dogs!
  • Feel the joy of patting a range of beautiful dogs in the Adoption Zone, Breed Showcase, Pat-A-Pooch and Insta Pooch stars, getting splashed by dozens of thrill-seeking DockDogs in spectacular pool-diving shows.
  • Spoil your pooch with stacks of new products, samples, Festival specials and dog-friendly clothing beds, doors, food, groomers, insurers, kennels, leads, collars, pet-tech, photographers, retailers, toys, trainers, treats, vets and more.
  • Make some fur-ever memories fetch free doggy face painting and capture the memory at our Neon Glitter Selfie Wall, then enter the VitaPet Door Prize, before chow-chowing down with some of Sydney's best food trucks!

The final attractions will be announced around soon, including the Breeders, Exhibitors and Sponsors taking part. To be notified once the full program is released click here to subscribe to our VIP eNewsletter.
