They say there’s a time and place for everything. This saying is especially true when it comes to your beloved dog.
You devote hours each week to feeding, grooming and housekeeping for your best friend. Then it’s off to the vet for their regular shots and whenever they are looking poorly. You willingly do it because you love and care for them. They reward you with unconditional love and affection. Travel to and explore a whole range of leash-free areas with our car rental Brisbane service. All dogs require regular exercise. If you have a home with a large yard so your dog can run free, they may get all the exercise they need. However most dog-owners are sot so fortunate. Most people these days live in homes or units where outside yard space is limited. ‘Somebody’ has to walk them all four seasons and that person is usually you.
Local councils give and they take a little when it comes to dog walking. They restrict where a dog may walk, both on leash and off-leash. However, we know where they are coming from. They must strike a balance between resident pressure for safety and hygiene concerns about freely running dogs in streets, public parks and gardens, with the need of registered dog owners to properly exercise their pets. Many parks do permit dogs to be walked off-leash, though a few common sense rules apply.
There are several websites which list off-leash parks in the greater Brisbane area.
It’s so rewarding to have a dog that is well behaved and obedient. There’s even greater pleasure from seeing them romp freely, yet still responsive to your call.
2009 RSPCA Million Paws Walk
May 17, 2009, is the date for the RSPCA’s Million Paws Walks being simultaneously held at many locations around the nation. The University of Queensland is the venue for the Brisbane Walk.
Million Paws Walks is an annual fund-raising project to support the good work of the State RSCPA organizations. Participating pet owners form and register teams of at least 10 members with RSPCA Million Paws Walk. While you can register a team on the day, your fund-raising potential will be limited.
May 17 will be a fun day. There will be dog agility and flyball demonstrations. Why not have your dog hydrobathed – all proceeds will be donated to RSPCA Queensland. There are products for sale, raffles and prizes, competitions, food, drink and entertainment for the children.
Participants in the Walk can order exclusive merchandise as mementos of the day. There are tee-shirts, caps and hats even dog coats and bandanas for your pet. It promises to be a fun day for everyone, so form your own tem and register today.
