Discovery Dog – An Amazing Race!

Animal Aid CEO Mark Menze.

 We are so excited to be launching a new event on Sunday 22 September.

It’s almost time to ready your pooches and get set for Discovery Dog – An Amazing Race!

At Wandin Park Estate, canines and their human counterparts will be racing to claim the title of Discovery Dog Champion…but don’t let the word ‘race’ scare you.

This game is not about speeding through to the destination – it’s all about the journey that gets you there.

Discovery Dog is an inclusive and exciting experience that you’ll get to share with your dog and team.

This epic adventure will see each team locate checkpoints.

At each checkpoint participants will need to complete an activity.

These might involve competitions, construction tasks, cryptic puzzles or creative photo challenges, all while keeping an eye on the time and trying to get to the finish as quickly as possible.

The winning team will have used not only speed, but also skills and smarts to take out the top spot.

If the event doesn’t sound like you but you still would like to be involved, then come along to our epic event village.

Take part in human and canine activities or enter your dog in our dog show.

Your dog could win in the categories Best Manners, Treat Catch, Best Colouring, Best Wagging and lots more!

Discovery Dog – An Amazing Race is the best opportunity for you to challenge yourself and your dog in a number of different tasks.

Participation will cost only $25 per person.

The structure of Discovery Dog requires competitors to be in teams of two or four, with at least one dog per team.

Registrations are open via – now is the perfect time to sign up!

All funds raised through Discovery Dog – An Amazing Race will help fund Animal Aid’s welfare program and care for homeless animals.

Animal Aid receives no government funding to operate, so fund-raising and events like Discovery Dog are integral to ensure that lost, unwanted, and surrendered animals receive the support, rehabilitation and love that they desperately need.
