Dogs Have Their Day This Weekend
The day Pittwater
pooches have been waiting for all year is here! Pittwater
Council’s annual Dog Day by the Bay at Rowland Reserve Bayview is on
this Sunday 21 September.
Organiser Emma Mackay said this year’s event was shaping up to be the
best yet. Now in its 14th year, the event which attracts over
3000 people has had a great response from nearly 40 stall holders and
“There is a great variety of fun competitions, demonstrations and talks
on interesting topics relevant to dog owners and over $3,500 worth of
prizes on offer thanks to the generosity of donators.
“We are pleased to have special guests Steve Austin and Dr Jo
Righetti on hand to answer your most complex behavioural questions.
“Attendees can stay informed on activities and events by the
popular Pet Talk Radio team, Brian and Kaye, who will MC the event,”
added Ms MacKay.
Ms Mackay said Dog Day by the Bay was an opportunity for dogs to
learn obedience techniques, skills and compete in fun competitions such
as the ever popular doggy dash.
Dog Day by the Bay runs from 10am to 3pm with activities
including agility demonstrations, education talks and a sheepdog
herding demonstration by Australian Working Dogs Rescue.
Children are also catered for at this fun family event with
children’s activities in the kids’ corner and competitions including
the Canine Fancy Dress Parade and the kids under 12’s ‘Pooper Scooper’
A variety of food and drink stalls will also be at the event and
proceeds raised will be donated to local branch of the Animal Welfare
League. Entry and parking are free.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong are great for your health generally. The low
intensity nature of the movements allows for relaxation but also
encourages your flexibility, strength and balance. The movements work

We will play Tai Chi outdoors when the weather is friendly.
