Top things to do with your pup in Perth this winter
The doggie blankets are coming out and the cold morning walks are setting in; but whilst Perth’s summer may be gone, the fun isn’t over for you and your pooch. In fact, getting out and about with your pup is a great way to stay social and in shape during the colder months. Luckily for local pet owners, there are plenty of events and venues that cater to four-legged friends in Perth. Here are Pooky & Boo’s top picks for things to do with your pup this winter.
RSPCA WA Million Paws Walk 2018 - South Perth
If you’re looking to get your dose of dogersize (that’s exercise for dogs) and you don’t want to do it alone, the RSPCA Million Paws Walk is a great chance to enjoy a dog’s day out in the name of a great cause. The event, which takes place on Sunday 20th May, will see over 8000 Perth pet owners and their pooches get together to raise money for RSPCA WA. With entertainment, stalls and giveaways throughout the day, this is the perfect opportunity to have some fun with the family (four-legged and all) whilst showing your support in the stand against animal cruelty.
Doggie dining at Noggos - Maylands
If you haven’t yet discovered this dog-friendly gem, Noggos is a must for any Perth pup owners with a passion for good food. Brought to you by partners in life and business, Huey and Emilie, Noggos is lovingly named after the owners’ adorable dachshund, Nugget - he’s one of the restaurant’s most regular customers, and has even been given his very own mural! Whilst Noggos’ menu is full of delectable dishes brought to you by the former Chef of Mez Mediterranean Cuisine and pro-pastry chef Emilie, the cafe’s counter is also stocked up with tasty treats for four-legged friends (all thanks to local brand, Pure Pet Products). With plenty of outdoor seating and a beautiful lake nearby for post-brunch walkies, you’d be barking mad not to make this dog-friendly café your next spot for brunch or dinner this winter!
Growers’ Green Farmers’ Market - Beaconsfield
For something a little different from your average Sunday stroll, Growers’ Green Farmers’ Market will be welcoming pups to their market every Sunday morning throughout the winter months (and beyond). The market has plenty of stalls and activities dedicated to doggos, including a hands-on dog wash, an organic dog food stall, and locally made leads. Providing your pooch is kept on a lead, your four-legged friend can enjoy browsing the dog-friendly stalls, with water bowls available in case they get thirsty along the way!
Social Saturdays - Booragoon
Owning a pooch can have a number of social benefits for pup-lovers, and this doggy daycare centre is helping Perth pet owners make the most of it this winter. Located in Booragoon, Pawsome Doggy Daycare centre invites owners and their pooches to paw-take in the ultimate puppy play date every week with their ‘Social Saturdays’ event. Taking place in the centre’s very own enclosed puppy playground, the event provides a great opportunity for owners to meet other dog-lovers whilst pup’s enjoy a social date of their own with fellow furbabies.
Noble Falls Walk Trail - Gidgegannup
If you’re willing to venture a little bit further for winter walkies, we can promise the views will be worth it at the Noble Falls Walk Trail. Situated 40 km Northeast of Perth in the town of Gidgegannup, the walk has become a local hotspot for Perth pooches and their owners. Beginning at the Noble Falls picnic area (the perfect place for a doggie snack), the trail follows the stunning Wooroloo Brook, and permits pups to stay off the lead providing they remain under control. Whilst offering beautiful views all year round, we’re told the waterfall is at its best during winter!
At Pooky & Boo, we love supporting local businesses and dog-friendly events. In fact, it was our own passion for pooches that inspired us to create a stylish range of handcrafted dog beds, designed to keep Australian pooches in comfort and style throughout all the seasons!View our latest range of designer dog beds via the Pooky & Boo website.
