January capers

CARNOUSTIE Canine Capers’ new year is set to be a busy one.

There will be a puppy socialisation walk at Ballister Park on Sunday at 1 p.m., and all puppies must have their second inoculation to take part.

The following week, on Sunday, January 27, there will be another socialisation event at the Brae RDA Centre organised by the British Horse Society.

It is designed to allow owners to work dogs with horses in a safe and controlled environment.

The event starts at 12 noon with a demonstration from a Tayside Police dog handler and an agility display.

Canine Capers will also be running a stall promoting the Green Dog Walkers Initiative, dog management and other activities.

For more information contact Kristine Hynd of British Horse Society Tayside on 07599968529.

On Tuesday, January 29, there will be an open meeting in the Kinloch Arms Hotel from 1 to 2.30 p.m. on the perennial issue of dog fouling.

Anyone with ideas or an interest in helping is welcome, anyone who cannot attend can email suggestions to carnoustiecaninecapers@gmail.com.
