Lebanon's first festival for dogs took place over the weekend at The Parks complex in Tahwita, which is the Beirut International Exhibition and Leisure Center's new location.One area was dedicated to small paddling pools where the dogs could take swimming lessons.A Chow Chow used the water to cool down after playing for hours in the sun.Another area had equipment where dogs could perform stunts and show off, while others looked on, tails wagging, oblivious to their owners' efforts to push them to do the same. The K9 Village, a dog training school and partners of the festival, had a booth encouraging people to adopt dogs.There was also a trailer where dogs could get groomed, massaged and pampered. The event was a hit for both dogs and humans."We loved the idea [of WoofFest] because it's difficult to meet other dogs," Jean-Paul, who attended with his husky, Paco said. Many owners lamented the lack of green spaces and restricted mobility for their dogs in the city.
