Traffic Light Bandana DOG WALK and fun day, hosted by Picton Vet, NZ.
Get out and socialize 'on lead' at the first ever Traffic Light Bandana Dog Walk and fun day.
These colourful bandanas each indicate the dogs feelings or condition. It signals to others to ask before interacting. Enjoy your dog in the company of others, while encouraging communication and control at dog parks, and avoiding accidents and altercations.
The event starts with recieving a registration doggy bag complete with bandana and supplies, from 9 - 9.45am. At 10am, get ready to join others in one of two walks around the Picton town showing off the colourful bandanas on the dogs. Call in at rest homes on the way to let some of the elderly see the parade.
From 11.00am the fun begins with 'Have to Go' Agility, Games, races and prizes for best trick, largest and smallest dogs and more.
