PETS IN AUSTRALIA | PET EVENTS | PETS & PEOPLE

17 November 2010

Girls & Dogs in Dog Off Leash ParkPets in Australia are becoming a major focus of the Australian leisure activities that evolve around the pet!

Pet expos are appearing on pet event calendars with amazing frequency. Council dog pounds and animal management departments are increasingly using the pet festival or pet day out to promote responsible animal ownership and to adopt out dogs and cats from their pet and animal holding facilities.  Blacktown Council recently held a major Pet Festival Day to raise awareness of the dogs and cats in their pound which drew a huge crowd from all around Sydney with the very best that a pet event could ever offer. 

FIND A PET EVENT NEAR YOU!

The pet public is responding to these pet events by turning up with their pets to take advantage of the amazing free offers and assortment of services for pets on the day. These range from dog fancy dress competitions, free or cheap dog washing, dog demonstrations in training to free microchipping. Often pet owners are given a free pet show bag containing pet product samples to try on their furry friends. These include dog shampoo, pet care information, dog treats, dog food samples and special offers: all free!

Pet owners are also taking advantage of their council's off leash areas to walk their dogs which is leading to many friendships being formed at the dog park that grow to support networks for their pets with many offering pet minding or doggy day care on a share basis. The new dog park friend might mind your dog when you are away with you reciprocating when your dog park friend is going on holidays.  Some dog park friends are also visiting each other after the dog park for coffee at each other's homes while some are having their friends' dogs over for a play day with their dog to provide canine companionship while the owner is at work.

FIND A DOG OFF LEASH PARK NEAR YOU!

There are even cafe's now offering services such as outdoor areas with dog bowls and dog food and treats to snack on while owners dine. All added to the dog owner's bill of course! Yes, dog services are growing and growing in Australia to cater for the pampered pet!

There are many dogs and puppies awaiting adoption so if you need a doggy mate to share your leisure time with please consider adopting a rescue dog from a pound or animal shelter.
