For ten weeks during Autumn 2017, a pack of Snowdogs will be unleashed onto the city’s streets, iconic buildings and open spaces as part of an extraordinary public art trail.

But our dogs need your help.

Take a look at the following canine commands to see how you can get involved in this celebration of Cardiff’s creativity, culture and commerce – and make it a fun way to raise money for an amazing charity.

SIT!

All pets love a good pamper, so we’re looking for artists to give each Snowdog sculpture a unique design makeover before they are let out for a scamper across the city. Design a Snowdog here.

STAY!

We’re asking local businesses to “give a dog a bone” by sponsoring their favourite canine, which will then be put on a plinth and assigned its special spot along the trail. Sponsor a Snowdog here.

GOOD BOY!

If you work for a school, learning provider or community group, join our Learning Programme and help raise funds for Tŷ Hafan by sponsoring a Snowdog pup on our mini trail. You will get to keep your pup at the end of the trail.

WALKIES!

When all the dogs are in place, it’ll be time for the public to get out and about, using our special trail map to find the dogs and rediscovering what makes Cardiff such a fantastic city.

FETCH!

As we all know, a dog is for life (not just for Christmas), so at the end of the trail you can bid to give your favourite furry friend a forever home at our special Snowdogs: Tails in Wales auction.

PAWS FOR THOUGHT

But it’s also an opportunity to raise money for Tŷ Hafan, the only children’s hospice in south Wales.
The money raised from Snowdogs: Tails in Wales will help the charity to continue providing care and support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families throughout Wales. Find out more about the charity’s work here.
