"George The Pug", rocking his custom battle jacket
Melbourne's very first music festival for dogs! In a city known for it's devotion to live music it was only a matter of time before dogs had their day. Sick of being left at home from one Meredith festival to the next Golden Plain's and Boogie, dogs finally had a festival all about them.
Created to raise funds and awareness for local animal rescue organisations Dogapalooza is a charity event, a day in the park with live music, stall holders, food and byo bevies ... what more could you want on the weekend.
Since music, dogs and good times are very much our thing we saw fit to make this event our very first Pethaus market. We were not disappointed. Beer flowed, and there were dogs in our denim everywhere.
We debuted our summer "must have" accessory, "Dog tag bottle openers" to a welcoming crowd of beer swilling humans and our chic new summer 'Denim Dog Bandana's' to were lapped up by the coolest music loving dogs in Melbourne.
Live music, food and dogs everywhere, we had an amazing time meeting so many instagram friends and new waggy tailed faces! Can't wait for next year.
If you were at Dogapalooza, or wish you'd gone we would love to hear from you. Tell us about your day, or if you'll be going next year in a comment below.
