Every dog has its day

The 17th annual Dog’s Day Out was a howling success, with crowds of canines (and their humans) enjoying a fur-family-friendly day at Simmons Park in Lindisfarne on Sunday 1 October.

From staffies to sausage dogs, poodles to pugs and shepherds to shih-tzus, every man and his dog is welcome at the much-loved Dog’s Day Out – a fun-filled day full of activities, competitions, stalls and more.

The ever-popular Dachshund Dash dazzled the cheering spectators with a fur-raising display of sausage-dog speed, while other pooches battled it out to be crowned Best-Dog-On- Day, Best Dress Up, Coolest Trick, or to win the highly coveted Longest Sit and Waggiest Tail contests.

This year Clarence City Council welcomed its first ever Dog’s Day Out ‘AmbassaDog’ from the Dogs’ Homes of Tasmania, Nala, who completed several important duties on the day including honorary judging and treat testing.

Clarence Mayor Brendan Blomeley said the Dog’s Day Out continues to be a clear crowd favourite on Clarence’s event calendar, with more than 10,000 dogs registered in the municipality.

“It was an absolute joy to see so many members of our dog- loving community – both human and canine – at this year’s Dog’s Day Out,” he said.

“On behalf of Clarence City Council, I want to extend my congratulations to all of the very-well deserving dogs who were crowned winners on the day and assure all of the other competitors that they’re all very good dogs in my eyes.”
