Love Lennox Festival 2024


2. Waggiest Tail

3. Peanut Butter Challenge

4. Most Pleasing Paw Shake

5. Doggie Dash

This is a fun two-dog race. You will position your dog on the start-line, and hand the lead over to one of our Dog Show handlers.  You will then walk a short distance to the finish line, and on the count of 3, your handler drops the leash as you ask your dog to "come", and whoever's dog gets to them first and sits wins.  Two dogs get to race each other at one time so there will be heats and a final.  

6. Talent Time

Best Young Handler is for kids (12 years and under) who have a special relationship with their dog, and we would love to see what you can do together.  You can walk them around our small arena, or ask your dog for some obedience training such as 'sit' or 'shake' or 'lay down' or 'stay' or 'come'.  

7. Best Costume

This event does not need much explanation.  From designer wear, to superheroes, to matching-owner outfits, to fancy jewellery, the possibilities are endless when it comes to finding the perfect showy outfit for your dog.  If your dog is new to dress-ups, search online 'how to get my dog to enjoy dress-ups' and use oodles of treats and praise while they are wearing their outfits.  

1. Weiner Race

This is a breed specific event.  If you have a Dachshund (or mini Dachshund) this is a race for you.  The race will only be 10m long.  All dogs will race to you from the start line and the first one to reach their owner wins.  You can either bring a second person to be their handler at the start line, or we can provide a handler for you.  The event is fully fenced so your dog will be safely enclosed within our 15x6m space.

Have your dog in any position; standing, sitting or laying down.  And do whatever it takes to get that tail wagging - offering treats or verbal praise.  You'll be paying attention to their front end, while the judges will be paying attention to their back end.

HINT: What are your dog's favourite words to hear?  

Does your dog LOVE peanut butter?  The Source Bulk Foods are kindly bringing down their delicious, dog-friendly peanut butter.  We will provide peanut butter on a stick, and the first dog to finish all the peanut butter wins!  So simple, so yum, so fun!

The judges will decide which dog gives them the most pleasing feeling while accepting a paw shake from your doggo.  You can first demonstrate how well your dog paw-shakes, and then let the judges decide. Bring their favourite treats if you think they will shake better for something tasty in return.

Please read "How it works" and the Terms and Conditions for other important details.
