Nanaimo canine lovers can find out the dos and don’ts of dog ownership Thursday night at Beban Park.
Nanaimo Kennel Club is hosting An Evening with Dogs event at Beban Park’s Centennial Building from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, and according to a press release, dog lovers can come and educate themselves on how to properly clip a dog’s nails and how and why to groom a dog and brush its teeth.
While the summer has passed, people will be on hand to inform owners on how dogs react to hot pavement, how they can drown while ingesting too much water when swimming, tick detection and removal, and basic first aid.
Information will also be available on how to source out a breed, therapy dogs and how children should approach a dog.
Organizers say well-behaved dogs on leash will be allowed, but not retractable leashes, and dog owners are reminded to bring poop bags.
Entry is by donation.
