Canines for Cause – Dog Festival 2015 held at the Al Bustan Ritz Carlton

Bright Lights Trading LLC was one of the sponsors of the ‘Canines for Cause – Dog Festival 2015’ held at the Al Bustan Palace  on 18th April.

The event raised funds for two charities; The Oman Cancer Association and The Oman Diabetes Association. Dog owners entered their pets in a number of demonstrations and competitions including fun activities such as tail-wagging, barking contests, bone tasting tests, jumping, musical hoops, agility and rally obedience presentation.

Many dogs dragged their owners to the show to take part

Musical Hoops is a competition for dogs and their owners and is similar to musical chairs for humans. Whilst the music plays, handlers walk their dogs “at heel” around a circle of hula hoops. When the music stops, handlers tell their dogs to “sit” or “down” so that at least two of their paws are in the hoop. Any dogs without two paws in a hoop are excluded. One hoop is then removed and the game continues until only three dogs remain. Dogs are disqualified if its handler enters a hoop at any time.

Musical Hoops – canine version of Musical Chairs

An English Cocker Spaniel won first prize in the musical hoops and his proud owner said, “He is around six years old. We got him from Qatar. He is quite friendly with us and our children. They love him a lot. We are happy to see him as the winner”.

All canine activities, at the fun filled family day charity show, took part in an air conditioned tent and there was also an air conditioned dog rest area and a medical area for both dogs and humans.

Bright Lights Event Management Team provided sound, lighting and AV for the event

Entertainment for the human visitors included face painting, bouncy castle, raffle and other activities.

Bright Lights Event Management Team provided all the sound, lighting and AV equipment to help the doggy fun day go well.
