June 17th, 10am – Pet Portrait Day

Event takes place at The Chewed Slipper in Lower Sackville. Support the ElderDog Halifax Pawd and book a quick sitting for a beautiful portrait of your pup!

Cassie from Wet Nose Images will be shooting dog portraits all day, and ALL proceeds go to ElderDog Halifax. Portraits will be 25 dollars and you will receive your portrait in high resolution via e-mail. It will be yours to do whatever you please with!

Please send Elderdog a message on Facebook and they will set you up with an appointment! A limited number of drop-ins will be taken but can't be guaranteed, so an appointment is highly recommended!

June 22nd, 6pm – Tennis Ball Scavenger Hunt

Starting at King's Wharf, you'll be given a booklet of riddles taking you through the streets of Downtown Dartmouth. Solve the riddles, and collect tennis balls as you progress. Once you've solved the riddles and collected all your tennis balls, return them to the starting point and they'll exchange them for a special treat for your furry friend. (And yes, they can keep a ball or two if they'd like to take home). Entry fee for the tennis ball scavenger hunt is $5 per dog, with proceeds going to the SPCA.

June 22nd, 6:30pm – HRM Weenie Walk

Meet other dachshunds in the HRM area and enjoy a walk around DeWolf Park on the Bedford waterfront. These dogs are lots of fun and they make people take notice!

June 23rd, 3pm – Barks in the Park

New this year, Barks in the Park is a dog friendly day at the Park Oven (in corner of Park Ave and King St in Dartmouth) filled with awesome dog activities, food, music (but not too loud) and lots of FURRY FUN. There will be a doggy art project, special dog treats, food (for the humans) and so much more. Entry to this event is "By Donation" with proceeds going to the SPCA.

June 24th, 11am – Wienerpawlooza

This is a fundraiser for Atlantic Canadian Dachshund Rescue, taking place in Shubie Park, which includes wiener races, longest doxie competition, best trick, best costume, BBQ, raffle, kissing booth, vendors, and more! NOTE: This is an event for Dachshunds only. Dachshunds are small in size but can be big in attitude and not always friendly with other breeds. To keep our small dogs safe and to prevent unnecessary injuries we ask people to NOT bring other breeds to this event. Thank you for understanding.

June 30th & July 1st, 11am – Hair of the Dog: Beer Garden & Dog Park

It's back. Bigger, better and fluffier than ever. On June 30th and July 1st from 11:00am until 11:00pm each day, bring your pooch to the Garrison Grounds to play fetch, roll around and sniff butts all while you sip on a pint of Good Robot beer.

Admission is free. Proceeds of pint sales support Halifax Pop Explosion and the NSPCA!

July 15th, 7:30am – Tail Chase 5k

It's time to get outside, spread the word, take care of our furry friends and help rescues who work tirelessly to make a difference in our community! This year, Tail Chase is raising funds for Marley's Hope!

Including your dog in physical activity not only gives you something fun to do with your friend, but allows your dog to develop their muscles, maintain a proper weight, and decrease boredom which can often be the cause of many behavioural problems.

Join us in raising funds for local rescues the right way: lets get up, get moving and be proud of the fact that WE let the dogs out!

We've partnered up with DogRunnin to create a 5k Canicross race!

All races are taking place in Shubie Park, Dartmouth.

 I hope we'll see each other at some of these events this summer! If I've missed any events that you know of, please let me know and I'll add them to the list!
