The adorable doggos of Brisbane live great lives, soaking up our sunny, summery weather almost all year round. But, just like their human companions, the city's four-legged cuties deserve a chance to enjoy a cool change — as well as the snow that Brissie definitely isn't known for.
Enter Snow4Dogs. It's an offshoot of the popular Snow4Kids event, except this one is for pupper parents and their pooches. Whether your canine is big or small, they'll be able to frolic in real snow between Friday, July 19 and Sunday, July 21.
Taking place at RSPCA Queensland's headquarters in Wacol, the frosty fun will feature separate areas for large and tiny dogs, with furry attendees able to get snowy during a 15-minute session. Fancy building a snowman (or snow pooch) for your barking bestie? Teaching them to chase snowballs? Seeing if they'll make snow angels? That's all up to you. Whichever you choose, you'll be given a bucket of fresh snow upon entry.
Bookings are required, with slots available from 5–9pm on Friday, 9am–7pm on Saturday and 9am–4pm on Sunday. The $15 fee not only includes your pooch, but two humans as well — and the latter should wear non-slip shoes.
Those heading along will be doing a good thing for their own pupper, as well as animals across the state, with all profits going to the RSPCA.
