Canine behaviourist helping curious dog owners at Dogs in Park

Dog owners across Hume City are encouraged to attend the inaugural and free Dogs in the Park event hosted by Hume City Council and the Lost Dogs Home on Sunday 2 February.

Two sessions with a canine behaviourist will inform residents about important dog behaviour, covering topics including:

  • safe play in the dog park
  • reading body language
  • positive training methods; and
  • canine enrichment.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said “There are currently 18,119 dogs registered with Hume City Council and this event is an opportunity for residents to learn from a canine expert about their dog’s behaviour and training.

“Following each of the sessions, residents will have the chance to ask questions of the behaviourist and Council officers who specialise in responsible pet ownership and the local laws relating to pets in Hume.

“Residents are welcome to bring their dog along to Dogs in the Park however, all dogs must be on a leash during the behaviour sessions and dog owners should also consider if their pet is socialised and confident in a crowd before bringing them to the event.

“I encourage dog owners or people considering adopting a dog to take part in this informative and educational event,” Cr Moore said.
