Dog's Break­fast a treat for pets

Joondalup Times - - FRONT PAGE -

FURRY res­i­dents in the City of Wan­neroo will be lap­ping up at­ten­tion at the an­nual Dog’s Break­fast this month.

The ca­nine-friendly event will re­turn to Kingsway Re­gional Sport­ing Com­plex in Made­ley on Oc­to­ber 21, of­fer­ing a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties, ex­hibits, com­pe­ti­tions, work­shops, en­ter­tain­ment and give­aways.

Some of the high­lights will in­clude free vet checks, a pooch-friendly photo booth, dog train­ing, an an­i­mal ki­ne­si­ol­ogy Q&A, on­site mi­cro-chip­ping and chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said rangers would also be on site to an­swer ques­tions and ac­cept dog reg­is­tra­tions.

“Dog’s Break­fast brings the whole fam­ily to­gether for a day of fun and pet pam­per­ing,” she said.

With an­nual pet reg­is­tra­tion re­newals ex­pir­ing on Oc­to­ber 31 and res­i­dents ex­pected to re­ceive re­minder no­tices this month, Mrs Roberts urged peo­ple to take up life­time reg­is­tra­tions for dogs and cats.

She said it was a “cost ef­fec­tive” op­tion that re­duced the risk of ex­pired reg­is­tra­tions.

The an­nual reg­is­tra­tion fee for an un­ster­ilised dog is $50 per year com­pared to $250 for life­time, while a ster­ilised cat costs $20 a year or $100 for a life­time.
