A canine celebration at Poole Pride

Proud Pooches

In Partnership with The Dolphin Centre and Arts University Bournemouth

Sat 8 June 2024

Join us for a tail-wagging extravaganza where our furry friends take centre stage. Proud Pooches is set to get tails wagging, celebrating the unique bond between our canine companions and the vibrant spirit of Poole Pride.

Get your Proud Pooches ready to wag and strut their stuff.

Delivered in partnership with our friends at the Dolphin Centre, this is one not to miss.

Proud Pooches will have three rounds and we are now accepting entries including:

Doggie Disco: Watch as our pups groove to the beats of LGBTQ+ anthems and upbeat Pride-themed music in this paw-some dance-off.

Fabulous Flair Fashion Show: It’s time to sparkle and shine! See our stylish pooches strut their stuff in dazzling, sparkly costumes fit for the runway.

Doggie Doppelgangers: Can you spot the resemblance? Cheer for your favourite lookalike as our dogs channel iconic LGBTQ+ celebrities.
