Rockhampton Regional Council is creating some paw-fect ways to engage with pet owners at pop-up stalls along popular walking tracks and parks around our region.
Planning and Regulation Councillor Grant Mathers said this will be a fun way for our community to come together, meet fellow dog lovers and learn tips and hints for responsible pet ownership.
“Over the course of the events that will extend through to next year, we will be sharing information on everything from obedience training, vaccination and microchipping to dog park etiquette, and importantly, keeping our kids safe around dogs,” Cr Mathers said.
“We will kick off the first event, along the Frenchville walking track from 3.00pm to 6.00pm Thursday 29 September, with many more to follow.”
Parks Sport and Public Spaces Councillor Cherie Rutherford said this is a great way to get out an explore some of the beautiful parks and spaces around our region.
“With the daylight hours now getting a bit longer, it is the perfect time to get out and enjoy the outdoors, and what better way than with your best mate?
“So if you love walking your pooch, why not take the opportunity to discover some different tracks and parks, while connecting with nature and connecting with your pet.
“Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website, for an event that may pop-up in your neighbourhood.”
