Weekly Planner: 16 things to do around Mumbai from 21 January To 26 January

Updated: Jan 20, 2019, 16:30 IST | SMD Team | Mumbai

Sunday mid-day brings complete combo listings to make your weekend happy

Go shopping with your pet
11 AM onwards: From grooming kiosks to fashion shows, Pet Fed promises to keep you entertained. If you're a pet parent and animal lover, Bandra's MMRDA grounds is where you need to head this weekend. Pet Fed, the country's biggest pet festival, will hold fort at the venue. And since it can be fairly easy to get overwhelmed at an event that is spread over three acres, here are five things to watch out.

Clean up well
The Flying Fur, a Delhi- based doorstep grooming service, will be setting shop at the Mumbai exhibition for the first time. From bath and tick treatment to paw massage and nail clipping, this organisation aims to have your pet's hygiene covered.

Strut your stuff
How often do you get a chance to be in the spotlight with your pet? So, put on your attitude and walk down the ramp in style. The show stopper will walk the ramp with actor Dino Morea.

Tough mutt
You've seen them at the airport, VIP events and five-star hotels, but here's your chance to see a security dog let their guard down (kind of). Trained to alert you to trouble and prevent suspicious and criminal activity through fierce barking, trust these dogs to put on a riveting show.

One of the greatest joys is helping a stray animal find a forever home. To push the goal, the folks behind Pet Fed have tied up with various NGOs including CUPA (Compassion Unlimited Plus Action Animal Care Clinic) and CARE.
