FEATURED ON THE LISTED GUIDE
Whether your pup is a racer, a yogi, a swimmer, or just loves being pampered, the “Day of the Dog” is coming to Vancouver this month. The pet-friendly event is the West Coast’s largest outdoor pet festival where your doggy can sample treats and play with all the toys.
Pet-a-Palooza is the social event of the year for dogs and their people. It will be held in Yaletown on August 28.
The event will feature a 120-foot pool party in the middle of the city, complete with a poolside DJ, pool floaties, and a lot of a-pup-priate swag.

The highlight of the event is the dog races. All that separates your doggie athlete from the championship belt is 30 feet of high-intensity racing.
The categories will include English bulldogs, French bulls, wieners, and corgis.
If your dog prefers peace and calm, bring them along for a limited yoga session. A 30-minute class will be held throughout the day from 11 am to 3:30 pm with 25 seats each.
Bless your dog with one of the many attractions or with literal dog blessings. This is a Nepali tradition that is believed to build trust and connection between people and dogs. Place flower garlands on your pet and apply a “tika” (a red powder mark) on their forehead, and give them a good rub.
Pet-a-Palooza will be held at 1100 Mainland Street on August 28, between 11 am and 4 pm. It is free entry and open to everyone!
