Pound Paws Dog Day at Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach’s iconic Dog Day returns, thanks to Waverley Council, a long term supporter of Pound Paws Dog Day initiative, which is focused on raising awareness about pet adoption and educating pet owners about responsible pet ownership. It’s a call out for all dog lovers to come together and celebrate the wonderful companionship which we share with our furry friends! Whether you’re a Bondi Hipster, Paw-rent or just an all rounder lover of pets, all hoo-mans are welcome to join in on the fun!

Expect endless tail wags, with a wide variety of fun activities planned, ranging from Best Dog Trick / Costume judged by reality TV Stars, Fiona Falkiner (Biggest Loser Contestant) and Blair Rachel (Married at First Sight) and Waverley Council to name a few. as well as Doggie Tarot Card Reading, Pet Market Stalls, Doglato and the famous Bondi Doggie Lifeguard Challenge. The Bondi Doggie Lifeguard Challenge, hosted by Pawsitive Vibe Fitness Agility courses provides dogs with an opportunity to live a day in the life of a Bondi Lifeguard. Each entrant will take part in the doggie obstacle course, which involves everything from dodging plush toy sharks, to swimming in mini pools. Each doggie contestant will be judged by real life savers from the Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club. Has your pooch got what it takes to become the 2023 Champion?

Pound Paws Rescue Dog Adoption Parade will involve a variety of dog rescue groups, including Animal Rescue Sydney and Maggies Rescue with dogs available for adoption. Not only are the rescue groups involved on the day to raise awareness about their dogs available for adoption, but Pound Paws assists in fundraising for them too. Founder of Pound Paws, Brittany Bloomer says “The purpose of this event and parade is to educate the local community that there are plenty of happy and healthy pets waiting for a fur-ever home in pounds and rescue shelters.”

We’re welcoming all walks of life from the sea shore to the green lawn at North Bondi Park, to join us in raising awareness about pet adoption. Whether you’re looking to adopt, or just want to fill your heart with puppy cuddles, we have your weekend plans sorted!
