The cobbled streets of Belfast's Cathedral Quarter will come alive with the pitter patter of little paws as The Dirty Onion popular Pooch Social returns with a Pups and Poke summer edition on Sunday June 11.

Dogs and their humans will be treated to an afternoon of live music, fantastic food and drink, and a range of stalls offering local treats, merchandise, crafts and toys all tailored to our four-legged friends.

The first 100 dogs to arrive at the event will get a free Frozzys Frozen Yogurt. The nutritious lactose free treat made by award-winning local dog treat company, Frozzys comes in four lickable flavours, making it the paw-fect treat for pups this summer.

Frozzys and a range of other doggy vendors will be at the event, which has become a popular fixture in the diaries of dog lovers from Belfast and beyond. Guests can check out products and services from vendors including, Belfast dog groomers, Ted Shearing; pet boutique, Into Bed; doggy bakers, Barkelicious Bakes; and Wee Cat, a glass stain artist, that creates personalised pieces of pet art.

Not to be left out, humans can also cool off, with ice cream pokes and a refreshing summer drinks menu on offer, while a summer park-themed backdrop will take centre stage in the beer garden to help the pup-arazzi capture Insta-ready memories.
