It is important to include your dog on outings to ensure they are kept active and socialized. There are a number of ways you can take your dog out into the community where they will be embraced and accepted for who they are - an important part of your family!
If you know of a great community event that is dog friendly let us know and we'll share it with the Mishy Moo Community. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Honeyeater Track: Walking from Chapel Hill to Mt Coot-tha Lookout
A dog friendly bush track may be your cup of tea? At just under 5km, cardio pumping and thigh burning is one way to attack this track. Plenty do it but for the rest of us a leisurely stroll with granny, good mates and the dogs means there is time to observe the wildlife. At a reasonable "walk 'n' chat" pace, including time to admire the views but with no pit stop, allow 1 hour 15.
RSPCA Million Paws Walk
Every year the RSPCA organise the Million Paws Walk to fight animal cruelty. This is a wonderful family orientated event where you can join thousands of people out for a walk with your beloved pooch. Check out where it is held and when in your state here.
Off-Leash Dog Parks
Did you know that your local city council provides off-leash dog parks in your area? If not you need to check out your local councils website or click on this link to find out where some of your nearest parks are:
Just remember when visiting off-leash parks that not all dogs are completely "socialized" so before entering it is always advisable to talk to the other users and introduce the dogs in a controlled manner before letting them off leash, so there aren't any fearful or traumatising moments for you or more importantly your doggy.
