More Canine Capers in Carnoustie

CARNOUSTIE Canine Capers have a number of activities coming up this month.

On Sunday they have organised a treasure hunt at Barry Mill between 2 and 4 p.m. Participants are advised to wear stout shoes or boots due to the mud.

Entry is £2 and refreshments will be provided.

All are welcome, with or without a dog, although those bringing dogs should keep their pets on a lead due to the presence of swans and other wildlife.

The open meeting earlier this month was judged to be such a success that a second meeting has been scheduled for Monday, February 25, between 7 and 9 p.m.

Solutions for the dog fouling issue in Carnoustie and district will be discussed. The results of this discussion, along with comments submitted via a range of other methods will be sent to a number of local and national organisations.

Contributions to the debate can be made via the Carnoustie Canine Capers Facebook page, carnoustiecaninecapers@gmail.com, www.carnoustiecaninecapers.weebly.com, 01241 854049 or by texting 07968 798573.

At the first meeting in the Panmure Centre Beverly Olone of the SSPCA gave a presentation and took questions on her work.

Donations of money and food were presented to Beverly which would be used to support the SSPCA centre in Petterden.

Training for the Trainers in Dog Management course is scheduled for the end of March and will be run by the Scottish Canine Consultative Council.
