In one more day, Playa del Carmen will be hosting one of the biggest events in Riviera Maya. For the first time, there will be a dog festival and for two days we will be honoring all the love and companionship our dear pets bring to our lives. This will also be an amazing opportunity to pamper your pet with activities planned for them, special treats, and games that will keep them entertained. During two days, the Dog Festival in Playa del Carmen will welcome locals, travelers, and their furry friends. Make sure to check the details below and find out more about this amazing upcoming event.
Due to the rapid increase of stray dog population, Somos Mas Playa Web TV wanted to raise awareness and support stray dog’s adoption. Riviera Maya is a paradise in many ways, but the dog shelters cannot keep up with the increase of strays. There are other local organizations in charge of creating events like this, and promoting responsible dog adoption. If you want to support, volunteer or donate, please send us an e-mail to [email protected] to put you in contact with the organizations who desperately need support to take stray dogs off the streets.
One of the highlights in the list of activities would be a Conference about protection and dog guarding. Two of the workshops include a special activity with Border Collie dogs. And if you are interested in adopting a dog, you will get the chance to meet many lovely doggies that are waiting for good forever homes. In addition to this, if your dog is missing a shot or deworming, both will be available and FREE during the two days of the event. The second day will be even more interesting because the activities are more focused on games and participation with the families. The agility court will be available for your pet to take a brief training course in the hands of experts. The afternoon will be full of games, contests, dogs in costumes, gifts, treats, and more surprises!
The Dog Festival will be hosted at the Plaza 28 de Julio, in front of Municipal Palace. Located on 20th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. Saturday, August 17th at 5:00 pm and Sunday, August 18th at 10:00 am. The access to the Dog Festival in Playa del Carmen is completely FREE. And everybody in the family is more than welcome to join in, including (of course) your dog pets. We can provide pet-friendly taxis or large van transportation for big size families.
