The annual Canines for a Cause Charity Festival will return this coming Saturday 10th November 2018, organized by Canadian Jebel K9 and hosted by the Al Bustan Palace – A Ritz Carlton Hotel.
This year marks the 4th Annual Event for this initiative, presenting a fun-filled family day out for everyone to enjoy, especially dogs! Doors open at 9am and the official event will start at 10am, where a line up of talented dogs will showcase displays such as ‘Agility, Search and Rescue Display’ and ‘Jumping Display’.
“We have enjoyed many successful years of this fun event for a good cause. Last year welcomed over 800 participants and over 200 dogs! You can imagine the excitement and buzz from dog-lovers enjoying the games and competitions whilst marveling at a world of breeds, coming together at the beautiful setting of Al Bustan Palace” – Alfa Vold, CEO Canadian Jebel K9, Organiser of Canines For A Cause.
For those who like to add a little more fun to the day, guests are invited to bring their dog in a costume to be in with a chance of winning ‘Best Dressed Dog’.
Some of the other entertaining competitions include: Best Trick, Dress-Up Relay, Rocket Recall, How-High-Can-You-Fly Jumping Competition, Musical Hoops, Bone Appetite, Paw-casso and Find the Treat. Visitors can also enter the Obedience and Agility Competition, with ribbons being awarded for first, second and third place. Dogs of all varieties and levels are welcome to join in, whether a beginner or experienced canine in competitions.
The day boasts both Prize-Draws and Door-Prizes as well as a host of vendors showcasing products and services for the community. The event will also shine a light on local rescue groups to help raise awareness for animal welfare across Oman.
The entrance fees for this special event are OMR 5 per person and OMR 2 per dog, with proceeds from ticket sales going to Oman Diabetes Association and Omani Paws. There will be a lunch served on the lawns at an additional cost to entrance fee.
