Doggie day out!

Play with your pet in the park this weekend at a free festival in Western Sydney Parklands. There’ll be 50 doggie-themed stalls, a 101 Dalmatians Jumping Castle, face painting for puppies and humans, plus a dog fashion parade.

There’s a series of free talks, too, including one from dog behaviourist Laura V, who will teach you how to achieve paw-fect dog behaviour using ‘Dognitive Therapy’. Put your questions to vet Dr Peter Higgins, farmer Dave Graham, or Sydney-based animal trainer Ryan Tate. Or learn how to cook for your puppa with Chew Chew Pet Restaurant.

Entry to Woof-fest is free for dogs and humans.
