Dublin's First Dog Festival Needs Your Help To Go Ahead

"It’s a Mardi Gras for Mutt and Man"


The Doggie Do is an upcoming dog festival that will take place this September 12 in Merrion Square and it needs your help.

Inspired by New York's annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade, the festival's organisers want dog lovers to bring their furry best mates along to this event in hilarious costumes for the dress up parade and compete for the title of 'Dog of Dublin.' Don't worry though, costumes aren't obligatory.

It's hoped that the event will bring Dublin's dog-loving community together while being a fun day out for all the family, with a full day of events programmed, from the educational to the completely ridiculous.

There will be Vet Q&A’s, talks from top groomers and trainers and a strong focus on responsible dog ownership. There will be a ‘Doggie and Soul’ area and participatory sideshows involving agility and scent trials.

However, if The Doggie Do is going to go ahead it will need your support. Help is needed to advance plan this event, build installations and a dog walk, invite speakers and ensure a brilliant day for everyone.
