Tails on the Trail
Tails on the Trail is the City of Canning's first ever dog event! It's guaranteed tail-waggin fun!
Celebrating our community and their dogs, this is a free event taking place at the picturesque Shelley Foreshore Park. Enjoy either a 2km or 4km stroll along the Canning River (Dyarlgarro Beeliar) with your furry friend, followed by hours of fun and entertainment! The path is wheelchair and stroller friendly.
With over 25 stallholders to check out, you’ll find a great variety of dog food and treats, dog toys and accessories and other dog service providers, as well as human food trucks, roving entertainment, live stage talks/shows and some very cute adoptables!
9:15am - 4km walkers depart
9:30am - 2km walkers depart
There will be 2 puppy parades at 11:15am and 12:45pm with ‘best dressed’ competitions for style-conscious pups, chosen by the audience. Challenge your pup on the Canine Adventure Course, take a snap in the photo booth, or have a splash with Pups on Sups.
Looking for something else? We are also offering numerous free sports activities, DIY doggie treat feeders & claw prints, pop up chill spaces and more.
So come along on Sunday 15 September between 9am and 2pm and have a great day out with your furry family member (social doggies on lead are welcome). Check out our socials to learn more – you’d be barking mad to miss out!
Don't forget your keep cup and reusable water bottle! Free water and compostable dog waste bags will be available (while stocks last).
*It is a condition of entry that dogs remain on leash in the event area for the duration of the event - if your fur kid needs to get some zoomies out of their system, there are 2 off lead areas filled with toys (1 for big dogs, the other for little pups). These will be in fenced off areas and signed so you know which is which!
*Registrations are for attendance numbers only, no need to print your ticket - just turn up on the day!
Interested in volunteering on the day?
We are looking for handful of helpful people aged 16 or over to assist with:
- Minding the off lead areas ("Wag World") tidying dog toys etc.
