Let's get dirty

Dirty Dog Challenge 2018

If your dog loves mud, and you don’t mind getting a bit grubby, come along to our Dirty Dog Challenge in June.

Hamilton City Council and Waikato District Council have teamed up for a unique event on Saturday 16 June from 10am where dogs and their owners can navigate their way through a mud-filled obstacle course.

Hamilton’s Animal Education and Control Manager Susan Stanford says it’s important to try new things and provide unique experiences for dog owners.

“We’re excited to have joined forces with Waikato to pull together this really unique event for dog owners,” says Ms Stanford.

Waikato’s Animal Control Team Leader Megan May says their teams aren’t just about enforcement.

“Our animal teams want to be able to give back to the good owners of our areas and give them an opportunity to participate in a fun event with their dogs,” says Ms May.

The Dirty Dog Challenge will be an all-day event at the Christian Youth Camp in Ngaruawahia with all profits from this event will go to helping animals in Hamilton and Waikato District’s communities.

Tickets are $30 per dog (one person per dog) and are available through the councils’ websites.  This event is open to dogs of all shapes and sizes and will need to be on-lead through the course.

Terms and conditions do apply.
