Dine out on im­ages of furry friends

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

SU­BI­ACO eater­ies are en­cour­ag­ing dog own­ers to dine with their pooches.

The See Su­bi­aco ini­tia­tive in­volves dog own­ers pur­chas­ing food or drinks at par­tic­i­pat­ing cafes and cap­tur­ing their furry friend on In­sta­gram rel­ish­ing Mog & Bone’s lux­u­ri­ous ac­ces­sories for a chance to win a $500 voucher at the pet ac­ces­sories store.

Paws in Subi win­ners will be an­nounced on Au­gust 2 and photo en­tries will be posted on the #Seesubi­aco In­sta­gram page.

Dog owner and City of Su­bi­aco Mayor Heather Hen­der­son is a reg­u­lar on Su­bi­aco streets with her dog Tilly.

“There are so many pos­i­tive ef­fects that a pet can bring to its owner, en­rich­ing their lives and pos­i­tively im­pact­ing their health and en­cour­ag­ing so­cial in­ter­ac­tions,” Mrs Hen­der­son said.

“Not only does walk­ing your dog help you to get ex­er­cise, your so­cial life may also im­prove.

“Peo­ple are more likely to stop and talk with you when you’re walk­ing a dog, strik­ing up con­ver­sa­tions with you about your pet.”
