4 legs good, 2 legs… ok as well, I guess. Yes, this is a party for our canine friends (and their owners) as all the cool dogs in town will be in the one place on Sept. 12th. Merrion Square will be taken over by smartly dressed dogs and their owners. Sounds a fun event, and you can find all the details below.
THE DOGGIE DO – Saturday 12th September 2015 – Dublin’s Merrion Square
If you had a tail, it would be wagging.
As you may have guessed, Dublin’s inaugural Doggie Do is all about dogs, a celebration of our unique bond with our canine friends, and a fun family day out in the leafy confines of one of the city’s loveliest parks, Merrion Square.
The event is inspired by the annual Halloween Dog Parade in New York City’s East Village, which offers the chance for the community of dog-owners to get together – and for everyone to enjoy the spectacle of dogs in fancy dress.
Dublin’s Doggie Do will offer an afternoon packed with events, appealing both to those who like to play dress-up and those who don’t. There will be a parade for dogs who are so inclined, culminating with the crowning of the inaugural ‘Dog of Dublin’. There will be a strong focus on responsible dog ownership, Vet Q&As, talks from top groomers & trainers, participatory sideshows involving agility and scent trials, and the opportunity to share on topics such as ‘Appetite for Destruction’ for anyone who has ever come home to a lovingly chewed slipper/sofa… To give our canine beasties some of the pampering they deserve, there will be a ‘Doggie and Soul’ chill out area – while for us humans there will be a picnic ‘market garden’ with some of Ireland’s finest food producers, live music, and in the evening, an open-air movie screening.
