It’s a dog’s world. In Whistler, this rings especially true, and we love it. Since 1998 Whistler doggies and their owners have turned out in droves to celebrate the doggone greatness of canines of all sizes and stripes.
In awe-inspiring outfits and with personalities galore, the hundreds-strong Dog Parade leads the way for the following exhibitions, agility demonstrations and competitions.
Proceeds support Whistler Animals Galore (WAG), a Whistler-based no-kill animal shelter. Since 1982, WAG has been working towards its mission of protecting and enhancing the lives of lost, unwanted and homeless animals, as well as raising better dog-owners through advocacy and education.
As the beneficiary of DogFest, WAG has been a Festival charity since 1998. www.whistlerwag.com
DogFest is a kid-friendly, pet-friendly event.
