A Family Fun Day Out!
Bring your dog and enjoy the fun atmosphere and competitions ( all dogs must be on a lead)!
While giving back to the community at the same time through raising money for Oman Diabetes Association and Omani Paws. We like to think of it as “Dogs giving back”.
The competitions are all about having fun and building better relationships with your dog through playing games and competing together as a team. Taking into account that the competitions should be taken with fun in mind. Our aim is by the end you leave with smile!
This event serves dual purposes, first to raise money for local charities and secondly to provide awareness and educate about dogs and their capabilities and give people an opportunity to socialize and learn how to get the very best out of their dog through letting go, enjoying and helping others at the same time.

Handlers are allowed to have their dogs on a lead and run their dogs over the jumps. All jumps will be in accordance to the dog’s height.

When the music stops, handlers tell their dogs to “sit” (or “down”) so that at least two of their paws are in a hoop. Any dogs without two paws in a hoop are excused. One hoop is then removed and the game continues until only one remains. The handler is not allowed to enter the hoop at any time or they are excused.
