Cheer on your favourite team at the inaugural Common Woof Games with K9 entries from Australia, Britain, Canada and New Zealand!

2018 is a big year for sports on the Commonwealth calendar so the Dog Lovers Show is taking the opportunity to showcase Dog sports like never before with the inaugural ‘Common Woof Games’ taking place over all 3 days of the event.

Dog Sports is a spectacle like no other, and the Dog Lovers Show 2018 is proud to present a comprehensive competition program comprising 11 different Dog sports under the theme of ‘Common Woof Games’.

The Royal Canin Arena will host a wide array of Common Woof Games with a jam-packed program of Dog sport competitions, an opening ceremony extravaganza, half-time entertainment by The Wonderdogs and of course some emotional medal presentations to crown the winners.

Everything from Hurdles to Barrel Racing, Basketball to Socca and even Discis – some of Australia’s most talented K9s will be competing in the Games and are in training now to wow you with their agility, skill and thirst for competition at the 2018 Dog Lovers Show!

The outdoor forecourt will play host to the Common Woof Games where the Black Hawk DockDogs Pool will present a program of breathtaking water sports including the Big Air® and Duelling Dogs competitions.

Last but not least, a new zone located upstairs on the Gallery Level will pay tribute to the world of Dog sports in the form of the Dog Sports Showcase. In this all-new attraction, you can learn about a range of different Dog sports, where to experience them and how to get your own Dog involved in these activities across Victoria.

It’s all about the wonderful benefits that sport provides our Dogs and the important role it plays in helping build stronger bonds between us and our Best Friends.
