Howling all Ballarat bulldogs and their owners 


To celebrate the return of the AFL premiership season in Ballarat, The Bull-Doggie-Do is back!  

Ballarat’s four-legged bulldogs, and their owners, are invited to the fourth annual Bull-Doggie-Do event on Saturday 3 April for a morning of doggy delight in the Bridge Mall.  

The free event will be held from 10.30am to 12.00pm at the Bridge Mall Farmer’s Market Easter Edition and will feature a series of activities for the whole family, including:  

  • The Best dressed bulldog competition (Bulldogs owners will need to pre-register via eventbrite, with free giveaways going to the first 60 registrations). 

  • A Western Bulldogs’ Information marquee  

  • Meet Ceasar, the official Western Bulldogs mascot  

The Bull-Doggie-Do is presented by the City of Ballarat in partnership with the Western Bulldogs to showcase the upcoming AFL match at Mars Stadium. 

The Western Bulldogs will soon make their way to Ballarat for their first AFL premiership season home clash at Mars Stadium on Saturday 10 April.  

Thousands of footy fans are expected to watch the Western Bulldogs when they take on Brisbane Lions from 1.45pm. Ticket numbers are limited due to COVID-19 Stadium Capacity limits 

City of Ballarat Mayor, Cr Daniel Moloney, said the event is a great opportunity for human and canine members of the community to have a great day out.   

  “The Bull-Doggie-Do is a wonderful event for the whole community and an amazing occasion for everyone to show support for the Western Bulldogs in the 2021 AFL season.” 

  “I’m excited to see our four-legged bulldog residents in their best outfits and everyone out and about enjoying one of the best events of Ballarat at Easter.”
