Bark in the Park supporting Guide Dogs WA and Dogs’ Refuge Home and Sponsored by City Farmers
Subi’s Bark in the Park is a unique sporting event where you are encouraged to bring your four-legged friend with you to Medibank Stadium. There will be treats for all the dogs in attendance along with a chance to win special prizes throughout the game.
Our partners at Guide Dogs WA, Dogs’ Refuge Home and City Farmers will be in attendance to talk to people about their worthy causes and City Farmers will be on the Northern end of the ground washing dogs. If your dog needs a clean stop in and say hello!

WHEN: Sunday, 10 April 2016
WHO: Subiaco Lions vs Perth Demons
WHERE: Medibank Stadium, located on Vincent St. in Leederville.
PRICE: Human tickets are $15 for Adults, $12 for Concession and Dogs are FREE!
IS SUBI’S BARK IN THE PARK RIGHT FOR YOUR DOG?
YES, if your dog:
· Is old enough to be around other dogs and people (at least six month of age)
· Is up-to-date on all required vaccinations
· Is in relatively good health
· Does well on leash and is not overly aggressive toward other dogs
· Is friendly toward humans and not excessively fearful
· Is an Lions fan! But we will welcome Demon fans
Probably NOT, if your dog:
· Is still too young to mix with a big crowd (under 6 months)
· Is a senior dog that would have trouble being outside for an extended period of time
· Has aggressive tendencies toward other dogs or humans while on-leash (or off)
· Is a Perth Demons fan… (just kidding, all are welcome!)
· Is exhibiting any signs of illness close to the day of the game (i.e., cough, nasal discharge, lethargy, diarrhea). These symptoms can be signs of potentially infectious illnesses and would probably be best for your dog as well as dogs in attendance, if they did not attend
· *** Older dogs, dogs with short muzzles, and/or dogs in general that are quickly prone to heat exhaustion should consider not attending this event or possibly plan on leaving before the end of the game. Even though there will be cool water and shady spots on hand, the direct sun and heat can be a dangerous combination for dogs. Dogs cool themselves down by panting and are not nearly as efficient as us humans.
·Please keep the comfort and safety of your dog in the forefront of your mind when planning out this fun day at the stadium and no dogs are allowed on the oval at any time.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR PARTNERS
Guide Dogs WA is Western Australia's primary provider of Guide Dog mobility services to people who are blind or vision impaired. Guide Dogs WA is run by VisAbility, formerly the Association for the Blind of WA. It costs more than $35,000 and takes 2 years to train each Guide Dog, and we rely on the generosity of the community, individuals, families and businesses to fund our Guide Dog Program. To ensure fair access for all, Guide Dogs are provided free of charge to people who are blind or severely vision impaired. Western Australia is the traditional home of Guide Dogs in Australia. It was blind yet visionary Western Australian Arnold Cook who brought Guide Dogs to Australia for the very first time. - See more at: http://www.guidedogswa.com.au
The Dogs' Refuge Home is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, care and re-homing of dogs. Established in 1935, it is one of the oldest animal welfare agencies in Australia. Our activities are motivated by the fundamental understanding that dogs are entitled to the same love and respect that they unconditionally give to us.
Based at 30 Lemnos Street, Shenton Park, our kennels are capable of housing up to 150 dogs. We have a pro-life policy, which ensures that no dog will be euthanised on economic grounds. Every year we take in many hundreds of dogs that have been abused, neglected or simply no longer wanted. Without your donations we are unable to provide vital care to these beautiful dogs. Please support them by visiting http://www.dogshome.org.au
City Farmers Dogwash began back in 1993 with a husband and wife team and two team members operating four vans in Perth. Back then we were called Flea-Stoppers. Nearly 140 dog years later (that's 20 human years), we continue to provide the same highly personal, reliable and friendly dog wash service we’re known for, and more.
Every dog is different. Different coats, different temperaments and different tastes in parasites. So we spend a little time sussing out our new client before we begin the scrubbing and pampering. Need some top pooch products? Our mobile units carry a great range of doggy essentials that can be ordered and delivered as part of your routine wash – or dropped off in case of emergencies! Whatever the reason, whether it’s fleas, ticks, dirt, general stinkiness, or you’ve just run out of dog food – give us a call and we’ll bound right over.
