We’ve got some really exciting news to share with you!
In partnership with Petzlove Pet Food, we will be hosting a massive 2-day, TWO-STOREY dog-themed summer market & social event! We're expecting over 1000+ attendees to come celebrate this summer weekend!
If that’s not enough to get you excited, then here are 9 reasons why you need to go to the Pup Up Summer Market this weekend:
1. Move over Barkling Water! Say Hello to Poodle Coladas and Pooch Schnapps
You read that right! Not only can you shop til you drop, but you can drink your heart out with some fantastic - and dare we say - cleverly named dog-themed boozy cocktails.
The best part? We’re offering the full bar service as soon as the doors open!
Let's be real, did you really need an excuse to get lit? We didn't think so!
2. Treat Your Pup Like They're VIP
Want your pet to be treated like the Very Important Pup that they are? Then sail into the Pup Up Summer Market with one of our VIP Tickets!
a gift bag upon check-in with products from at least 3 brands
one polaroid picture at the Paw-laroid station and
1 free boozy or virgin drink
What's the worst thing that can happen? Your dog gets spoiled? (like they aren't already!)
3. Support Local Canadian Pet Businesses
Itching to buy something new for your pup? Looking for something unique to show off on your next walk around the block? Searching for the next local Canadian-based brands to support?
Then the upcoming Pup Up Summer Market is the place to be.
We’re proud to say that every single one of our 25+ businesses at this marketplace is a 100% Canadian-based brand.
Whether you’re looking to make your neighbourhood your own doggy fashion runway, innovative doggy bathrooms, or you just have a hankering to feed your pet some dog-friendly fruit loops, shop happy knowing every purchase supports a Canadian pet business.
4. In the ‘Spirit’ of Giving Back
A happy woof! of thanks in advance for trying out some of the drinks! A portion of every sale from each drink purchased will go directly to Fetch and Releash: an Ontario-based rescue focusing on finding foster homes for furry babies all actress the GTA.
As you sip your cocktails and walk through the market you may also catch a glimpse of some of the adoptable pups that your drink purchase is helping out at the Fetch and Releash adoptable booth! Feel good and feel lit at the same time!
5. Experience What It’s Like to Go Grocery Shopping with Your Pup
While we won’t be going to a real grocery store, you and your four-legged friend can get a chance to experience what it could be like by bringing your pet to our very own dog-friendly life-sized grocery store.
It's photo ops like these that Doggos wants to remind you and the city that every place can be and should be dog-friendly!
6. Take Home a Paw-laroid Picture
Hands up if you feel like your fridge could use an extra one - or a hundred - photos of your adorable dog-child?
Bring home a stylish memory of your pup to add to your fridge when you visit our Pawlaroid station OR leave the photo with us and we'll add it to a mural we're creating at Doggosphere Studios of all the doggos in the city!
7. Discover Your Next Favourite Toronto Musician
They always say "shop locally" - now it's time to "listen locally". Enjoy live music from some of our local Toronto musicians including Mr. Jazz Duo (tenor saxophone & jazz guitar), J'onn Snow (rapper) and other live music & entertainment. Each day has it's lineup of talent so get your flex ticket so you can see it all!
