5 dog events happening in Vancouver this March that you won’t want to miss

If you don’t want to have to leave your dog at home, we’re with you.

That’s why we’re constantly on the look-out for events coming up in Vancouver that you can bring your furry best friend along to.

It’s only fair that they get to join in the fun, so we’re promoting (and planning!) dog-friendly events every month.

And whether it’s painting, yoga, or coffee you love, there’s something for you and your dog to enjoy this month right here in Vancouver.

Check out these 5 dog-friendly events coming up in March, and get these dates in your diary!

1. For The Love of Dog PADS Gala

Like the sound of having your very own ‘puppy host’ at a fancy dinner party while also raising money for a fantastic cost?

On Saturday, March 14, Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) are hosting a glamorous night of entertainment to raise funds for their very important work in the community.

PADS breeds, raises and trains fully certified assistance dogs and last year's Gala raised over $85,000 to support PADS programs.

If you can get a group of 10 dog-loving friends who all want to attend a glamorous evening in at River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, you could be treated to your very own 'PADS Puppy Host' at your dinner table.


When: Saturday, March 14, 2020

Where: River Rock Casino Resort,

8811 River Rd, Richmond, BC V6X 3P8

Tickets: Available to buy here

2. Your Dog, The Artist - Paint Night with your Dog

Do you think your dog could be a bit of a Pawcasso? Only one way to find out!

This event, hosted by Good Boy Collective, gives you the opportunity to paint alongside your dog and let them exercise their artistic skills! I's guaranteed to be a completely different, and fun, way to bond with your pooch and we think it's awesome!

Dog trainer Rileigh Rush will lead the class where your dog will learn 'how to paint' using positive clicker training to shape a new, fun behaviour.

Then at the end of the class, you get to take home your dog's painting to proudly hang on your wall!


When: Sunday, March 22, 2020, 6pm - 8pm

Where: Good Boy Collective,

3633 Main St, Vancouver BC

Tickets: Available to buy here

3. Poses and Pups

How often do you get to take your dog along to your workout class? Not often enough we say!

We've had two completely sold out classes and March tickets are selling fast - but there are still a few places up for grabs if you'd like to try some dog yoga with us this month!

Poses & Pups is a great way to bond with your pup, meet new owners and their dogs, and get your hands (and paws!) on some cool local swag.

It's a chilled out, beginner-friendly class and a perfect way to spend your Sunday morning.

Check out our Instagram to check out some pictures from our February class!


When: Sunday, March 29, 2020,10:00am - 11:00am

Where: RYU - West 4th

1745 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC

Tickets: Available to buy here

4. Canine Coffee Crawl

Take a tour of the best coffee Vancouver has to offer with your furry bff by you side.

We joined forces with Vancouver Coffee Snob to plan a huge dog-friendly coffee crawl throughout Vancouver - and we're so excited to combine our two passions!

The one-hour coffee tour will start off at Prado Fir before making stops at Be Fresh, the iconic Bel Cafe and Viva Fine Foods & Bakery.

Tickets include outdoor tasting at all four coffee shops and a swag bag courtesy of Prado Cafe, Be Fresh, and PawSwap for you and your pup enjoy!

The last stop on the tour is a trip to Kitsilano beach, where dog owners can continue chatting while their dogs let off some steam.

When: Sunday March 15, 2020, 10:30 AM – 12:00 noon

Where: Kitsilano

1809 Fir Street

Vancouver, BC

Tickets: Available to buy here

If you weren't able to get tickets for the March event, don't worry! Due to popular demand, we've planned Canine Coffee Crawl #2 in April. There's only 20 spots, so reserve yours here and don't miss out!

5. Pop-in@Nordstrom Pet Shop

From now until the beginning of April, there's a pup-friendly pop-up pet store inside Nordstrom on Robson Street, and it is absolutely worth a visit - even if you don't plan on buying something!

Take your pup for a walk through the colourful and very cute store and enjoy browsing the huge selection of treats for both you and your furry friend. That's right, there's plenty of cute things for us humans too!

So if you're Downtown this month, this pop-up store is well worth a stop, and is a great place to pick up toys, treats, accessories, grooming essentials and more!

When: Now until April 5, 2020

Where: Nordstrom,

CF Pacific Centre, 799 Robson St, Vancouver, BC
