INSTAGRAM famous dogs will be the key attraction at a pooch-friendly market in Melville.

The first Pawty at Melville event will be at Bob Gordon Reserve in Bull Creek on December 1 from 10am to 2pm.

Among the dogs attending the event are Kylo and Vader the retrievers, who have amassed more than 130,000 followers on Instagram, and Rollo the shiba inu, who has 77,000 followers.

People will be able to get photos with the pooches as well as enjoy dog-related stalls, food trucks and family-friendly activities.

Organiser Esther Wagner said the concept came from supporting other local businesses as she runs Frankie Loves Barkery, a handmade dog accessories and treats business.

“People can expect a range of dog-related businesses, from a dog wash to treats and a local dog walker,” she said.

Mrs Wagner said the popularity of dogs on Instagram could be put down to the fact they were cute.

“Whenever I look at dogs and animals doing random things, it makes me smile and laugh,” she said.
