Walking your beloved pooch on a Sunday just got a lot more exciting! Napier’s Park Island, one of the most popular places for exercising dogs, will be temporarily transformed into “Bark Island” on Sunday November 13.

Bark Island will be a fun-filled morning dedicated to man’s best friend. Napier City Council’s Animal Control will be on hand to give out some freebies and treats and provide information about services they offer. Dog behaviour experts will also be there giving advice on dog obedience.

An island-style fashion show for dogs – judged by Shortland Street beauties, Ria Vandervis (who plays Harper) and Amelia Reid Meredith (who plays Bella) is sure to be a crowd favourite.

There’ll be a runway and prizes for best dressed, greatest personality, shiniest coat, most like owner and loads of spot prizes. Think leis, coconuts, pineapples and Hawaiian shirts!

For the humans’ there will be barista-made coffee, ice cream, sausage sizzle and twisted chips available to purchase.

Bring your picnic rug and enjoy this unique event.

See you there on the east-side of Park Island (follow the signs from the carpark).
