Grab your furry friends and join us Saturday, September 22nd

You and your leashed buddy can enjoy dog friendly activities at the Canine Connection BarktoberFest tent!
Dog costume contests, games, water, shade, pet and vet vendors and even Pupular’s Speed Dating! This NOLA based free iOS app provides an easy, safe, and fun way to connect, meet up, and socialize with other dogs nearby. Save time and download before coming to the Fest.

  How does Pupular Speed Dating work?

  • Humans register their pups for a round of Speed Dating lasting just about 20 mins
  • All registered dogs’ humans download the Pupular app and create an account
  • A starting bell sounds and dogs split into assigned pairs (5 at most)
  • The humans and their pups meet for a 4-5 minute ‘sniff session’
  • At the end of each, the pairs rotate to a new pup/human pair
  • If the pups (and humans) are a good fit for a future play session, they can join one another’s Pack on Pupular
  • At the conclusion of the round, all pups get a treat, and are also entered into a raffle to receive a sweet prize!
