Canine Capers – Sunday 26th April Zetland Park Grangemouth

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Falkirk Council promoting responsible dog owners, the superb ‘Green Dog Walkers’ scheme and sharing our love of alliteration.

Canine Capers Is The Place For Proud Pooches!

One of the largest gatherings in Central Scotland of proud pooches and their owners is taking place next month as hundreds of dog owners and their pets are expected to descend on Grangemouth’s Zetland Park to celebrate Falkirk Council’s first ever canine gathering.

The free event is taking place on Sunday 26th April between 12pm and 4pm and will feature a number of games, competitions and events all designed to show off the best and most attractive features in the dog world and at the same time get across a message about responsible dog ownership.

Some of the attractions include a dog agility course; a competition for the best trick, dog eyes, most dashing dog and bonniest bitch, biscuit catcher and even the dog with the waggiest tail! Owners can just register for each competition on the day. Prizes and rosettes for all the participants and champions taking part.

In addition to the competitions there will be displays of dog agility as well as Indian Runner Ducks (The Quack Commandos) showing their duck dexterity.

Should be a great day out – big thanks in advance to Falkirk Council
