Markham Dog Association

Valleyview Gardens and Markham Dog Association are working together to throw the ulti-mutt party to bring families who have or love dogs together, while donating the full proceeds of ticket sales to the rescue: Save Our Scruff! 

Join us Sunday, February 26th at Valleyview Gardens where (for one day only) they will have an indoor dog park as well as multiple plant/flower themed photobooths! Medium/Large (20lbs or more) sized dogs are invited to come from 12pm-2pm, and Small sized dogs (20lbs or less) are invited to attend from 2pm-4pm.

Take a stroll through our ‘plant and dog themed’ vendor market, and support local with anything that catches your eye (or your dogs nose – there will be treats).

Our major sponsor, Ren’s Pets will be on site with a themed photobooth, treats for the dogs, and a bunch of free giveaways!

Visit the Save our Scruff booth so you can meet and greet their incredible team and see how the money we raise through this event, will go to help dogs!

This is a dog-friendly event, but bringing your dog is optional. The ideal dog for our events are dogs who are already socialized, and dogs who do not excessively bark. It is recommended you take your dog for a walk prior to the event to use up some of their energy, and make sure they are entering the greenhouse with their ‘business’ settled outdoors. You are responsible for cleaning any business your dog may try to gift to the greenhouse. 

We will have water bowls and poop bags around the event-space – it is best to feed your dog prior to attending as well.

Purchasing a ticket means: You understand you are fully liable for your dogs behaviour and any mess they may cause. Some plants are not good for dogs to eat, so it is advised you pay close attention and be mindful of this. Dogs are to be on leash at all times, unless inside the dog park. Bylaw officers have been invited to provide tips to those who need them.
