The biggest dog festival for the advertising industry is back!

BarkLA is a networking event unlike any other: your dogs get to mingle and munch just like you, and you'll maybe even leave with a new furry brother or sister. Join us at CTRL Collective and while you drink, snack, and chat, your best friend can meet (sniff!) a few other pals, snap photos in a GIF booth, learn new tricks and meet adoptable dogs who are ready to join the ad dog ranks.

Proceeds will benefit dogs from Designer Dogs, an all-mutt rescue, some of whom will be at the event to sniff "Hello" to you in person.

All guests that are bringing a dog need to sign this WAIVER. We'll have printed copies at the event to sign.

Every dog has an alter-ego. Whether your bestie is truly a princess or a porcupine, we challenge you to dress your pupper in its absolute best Halloween costume. Prizes will be awarded for: 
  • Best In Showiness
  • The Pawtner Award (Hooman must be costumed, too!) 
  • Creative Grand Champion
Enter to win by stopping by The Pet Collective table with your fur friend(s). We'll snap a quick pic and log your data. If you hope to win a gift card (equivalent to a multitude of peanut-buttery biscuits) plan to hang out until the winners are announced. 


Every transformation begins with a rescue. Show us your pup’s #TransformationTail with a before and after photo of the day you adopted them. Include a brief caption with the hashtag #BarkLA that tells your dog’s story.
10 tails (and their humans) will win VIP admission to attend BarkLA at CTRL Collective on Oct. 24, courtesy of ThinkLA.
