AWL By your side

Coming Attractions this weekend

There are actually a lot of dog related events on this weekend that we’re really looking forward to. These are the three that I know about. Let me know if there are any others I’ve missed.

Cesar Millan

Saturday, November 26, 2011, 7pm
Adelaide Entertainment Centre

Cesar Millan is live at the Adelaide Entertainment Center this Saturday night as part of his Australian and New Zealand tour. There are still some tickets available through Ticketek.

I do have to point out though, that you can not take your dog to the show (it’s a rip, I know). There are lots of warnings about this on the Ticketek site, as well as on Cesar’s own website, so it seems like a lot of people have tried this before.

But even without our dogs, I know that ourselves, the folk from Dogcity Daycare and Griselda from Doggy Bliss will be going along.

AWL By your side Family Fun Day 2011

Sunday, November 27, 2011, 9am – 1pm
Wigley Reserve, Glenelg

The Animal Welfare League’s annual event, with stalls, a beach walk, demos, and training tips.

There will also be a Guinness World Record Attempt. AWL are trying to arrange the ‘largest reunion of AWL adopted pets’. Considering that the AWL has rescued and re-homed thousands of animals over the years I’m eager to see how many show up on Sunday.

GAPSA Open Day and Family Picnic

Sunday, November 27, 2011, 11am – 4pm
Greyhound Racing SA, Angle Rd, Angle Park

Also on Sunday is the Greyhound Adoption Program’s open day at Angle Park. This is a family orientated event, with bouncy castles, face painting, balloon artists, etc. There are also doggy-centric attractions, such as dog washing, dog portraits and also doggy massages being performed by Griselda from Doggy Bliss.

Picnic in the park

Sunday, November 27, 2011, 10am
Pinky Flat, Adelaide

And yet another one on Sunday, the annual Feast Festival Picnic in the Park. While this isn’t strictly dog-centric, it is dog friendly and they do hold a Feast Dog Show every year. Plenty of stalls and entertainment, so if you’re looking for something different to the usual dog events, this might do it for you.


Sneaky plug for our own event

I know this isn’t until next weekend, but of course I can’t have a post about upcoming events without mentioning the Christmas Husky Meet.

The Christmas Husky Meet at Jenkins Reserve, Salisbury. Come check it out on the 4th of December.
