Doggie antics pulls crowd

EUMUNDI Markets is going to the dogs.

Woofstock, a festival for our four- legged friends, is on track for its second annual show on Sunday, September 11.

It provides an avenue for local canines to display their talents among their peers, and opportunities for up to 80 local businesses to showcase the latest in doggy toys, fashion, food and furnishings.

Director Dave Daly said up to 4000 people brought their pooches to the inaugural day of the dogs last year.

"It's a magic day.

"What sets us apart from other pet events is that it's strictly geared towards dogs and their owners.

"Everyone has a smile on their face, even the dogs."

Woofstock will feature giveaways, markets, entertainment and competitions for dogs inspired by hit television shows, including Australia's Next Top Model and Australia's Got Talent.

Organisers are also on the lookout for dogs with the waggiest tail, and for furry fashionistas to enter the Doggie Fashions on the Field.

A special appearance will also be made by military police dogs.

Tewantin dog lover and Woofstock host Nat Pyziakos will be out in force with four-year-old staffie cross British bulldog, Bruce.

"It's absolutely awesome. It's great to get dog lovers together, everything you can imagine and more is there," Ms Pyziakos said.

"The way people are these days with their dogs, it's about time something to cater just for dogs came along."

The RSPCA will be raising money for its Noosa operation on the day.
