ABOUT 3000 dog owners and their pets attended the fourth annual Dogs Day Out in Ocean Reef recently.

Held at Lexcen Park, this year’s City of Joondalup event also included the inaugural Coastal Dog Walk where the four-legged participants graced the ‘pupparazzi red carpet’ before setting off on the 3.2km stroll.

While some dogs at the festival relaxed and socialised, others took part in behavioural and agility demonstrations and vied for titles such as the best dressed dog, best behaved dog and dog with the waggiest tail.

There were also market stalls and exhibitions and experts offering tips on dog-related matters such as obedience and handling.

Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said the coastal dog walk was a great addition to the festival and a chance to showcase the City’s coastline to the many dog walkers who travelled from outside the northern corridor to take part.
