Welcome to DOGGYWOOD. It’s the greatest show on PAWS!

Whether they’re pampered pooches, preened puppies or fabulous furry friends, this is THE event of the Mardi Gras season for the four legged folks of our community.

Pets provide an important source of love and support for many LGBTI people so this year LGBTI health organisation ACON has taken the lead and is set to celebrate the difference that dogs make in our lives with a fetching festival of all things canine.


Game Of Bones Dog Pageant


Check out Sydney’s finest furs all dressed for success as they battle it out for the coveted titles of Best Dressed, Most Talented and Best In Show. There’s two editions (12pm and 2pm), and $5,000 worth of great prizes for both dogs and owners. It’s FREE to enter so REGISTER NOW.

Dai Aoki’s K9 Spectacular


You loved him and his dogs on Australia’s Got Talent and they won the Australia’s Smartest Dog competition on The Living Room. So get ready to go barking mad for this great new show featuring Dai and the amazing antics of his superstar border collies Holly and Ace, the new faces of Baxter’s Dog Food. There is almost nothing Dai’s companions can’t do (trust us, almost nothing!) so make sure you get a front row seat to witness some spectacular canine acts. There’ll be two shows (11:30am and 1:30pm) so don’t miss this special doggie treat.

Dai Aoki’s Dog Training Masterclass


So your pooch may not be able to defy belief (and gravity) like Dai’s companions but it’s never too late to try getting some of the basics down-pat. Dai will also present two special FREE dog training masterclasses for those owners wanting to teach their old (or young) dogs some new tricks (10:30am and 3:30pm).

Best In Show Photo Booth


Everyone’s a winner at Doggywood especially when they pose and snap in our Best In Show photo booth. Make sure you have a Fair Day memory to cherish with a photograph of you and/or your furry friend in our blue ribbon seat.

Love Your Dog


They’re your kid, your child and your world so why not get to know them a lot more closely. Throughout the day there’ll be various live chats with our Doggywood sponsors about caring for your pooch. Think health, grooming, nutrition, and a bit of cunning canine psychology (11am, 1pm and 3pm).
