Lyka Pat-A-Pooch


10:00am – 4:30pm daily.

Puppy love – connecting with a dog and seeing their tail wagging in appreciation – is one of life’s absolute joys, for kids and adults of all ages.

There’s mounting scientific evidence to show that a few minutes of stroking a dog prompts a release of a number of ‘feel good’ hormones in humans, akin to other things we know that cause relaxation, like eating chocolate!

Patting a pooch releases oodles of happy endorphins and puts smiles on any dog-lover’s face which is why Lyka Pat-A-Pooch is always one of the most popular attractions at the Dog Lovers Festival.

Visitors will get to interact with a multitude of dog breeds, of all shapes and sizes, with a handler there at all times providing trusted, reliable information on each pooch.

Lyka Pat-A-Pooch presents a beautiful yet rare opportunity for kids (and adults) to get up close and personal with a wide range of dogs – as well as take a much-deserved break from the busy-ness of the Dog Lovers Festival.

Lyka Pat-A-Pooch works in conjunction with the Pedigree Adoption Zone and Breed Showcase, providing resources and valuable information on a wide range of dogs.

Visitors will love meeting and interacting, in a safe and rewarding environment, with the beautiful dogs at the Show which is why Pat a Pooch gets bigger and better every year!
