It's a great time to have a four-legged friend in south-east Queensland — or, for those who are still dreaming of their very own pupper companion, to bask in the cuteness of everyone else's. In fact, the region has gone barking mad for pet events. First, Brisbane got its first regular pet-focused market. Now, Sanctuary Cove is hosting a canine-centric day of fun.
Paws & Pizzazz takes over the Marine Village on Sunday, March 26 with a celebration of doggos that spans everything from obedience to health checks to responsible pet ownership. The free, all-ages affair is the perfect excuse to take your adorable pooch on a road trip — and to buy an adorable pup outfit.
It wouldn't be a dog extravaganza without a pet parade, of course, with fashions on the field, waggliest tail, biggest smile, most impressive hairstyle and pets that look like their owner among the categories your pooch can compete in. If you're heading along sans-hound, check out the Insta-pet meet and greet, where all of those local, furry stars you've been following will be on hand to say hello.
