Time Out says

A festival dedicated to our favourite four-legged friends is everything you hope it would be

It's back! Brunswick's Barkly Square is hosting its fourth annual festival for dogs and dog-lovers, celebrating all things pooch with free activities, pop-up stalls and fun for dogs and their human servants.  

The dog parade is back on with a bunch of different categories for Fifi or Fido to compete in, from Fastest Floof to Best Costume and Best owner Dog-elgänger. 

This year, the festival is joining forces with the Dingo Discovery Sanctuary and Research Centre for a dingo-centric pop-up. You can learn all about the country's native doggos and raise awareness for the sanctuary's important conservation work. Snap a selfie with dingoes Pumbah and Aussie for $5 a pop and all proceeds will go to the Australian Dingo Foundation.

Pop-up stalls will be offering a range of products from treats to pet accessories, while others can witness talented dogs in a series of pooch performances. Forgot to bring a treat for your pup? The Canine Wellness Kitchen food truck will be on site to feed the good doggos in attendance, serving up dog-friendly beer, bone broths and puppy street food. There will also be obedience classes, live music and heaps more to keep you and your pup occupied.

Don't have a dog? Rock up anyway, make a few new furry mates and live vicariously through those lucky dog owners. Barkly Barks Dog Festival is on from 10am to 3pm on Saturday, May 25.
