A pup-up doggy playground where your furry mates can get ruff and dirty, with paddle pools, an agility course, a stick library and more tail-wagging activities.

Melbourne’s home to plenty of off-leash dog parks and beaches, but none quite like this.

Scratch Patch is a new puppy pop-up play place, with fun activities for your doggos in each corner – think obstacle courses, agility poles, totem tennis, sticks for fetch, a jump-in pool and treats from Scratch Pet Food.

It’s not just for your furry friends – the pup-up promises to be fun for hoomans, too. And if you’re worried about your dog getting overwhelmed by all the sights and the other pets, there’ll be dog behaviour specialists on-site to help calm them down.

There are themed days and events, too: Sunday the 6th is for bulldogs, it’s all dachshunds on Thursday the 10th, single pet owners can mingle on Friday the 11th, puppies can meet new friends on Friday the 18th, and more.

Entry to Scratch Patch is free for Scratch customers and City of Yarra residents; it’s $10 for everyone else. Bookings are required.
