Being a proud new puppy parent, (my husband and I added a Golden Retriever puppy to our family when we purchased our first home so that our beloved Gadget would at least have a friend to help her adjust to her new surroundings) I am always on the lookout for dog-related events to bring our pups to. Socialization is important when training a new puppy, after all. (By the way, his name is Tuukka, named after the goaltender for our beloved hockey team, the Boston Bruins!)
So I was excited when a follower of the DDB on Facebook sent me the information about "Bark in the Park," an afternoon filled with activities for dogs and their humans taking place this Sunday, August 4th from 11:00am until 4:00pm. The fun goes down at Kennedy Park in Fall River, MA and is the 6th annual event sponsored by the Fall River Coalition for Animal Awareness. The rain date, just in case, is scheduled for Sunday, August 11th.
Looking at the schedule of events, this event seems like a great day for dogs and owners alike. They will have a rabies clinic offered by Mass Mobile Vet for only $12, a micro-chipping station for only $19.99, canine massages by Wet Nose Canine, pet product samples and vendor booths and demonstrations by the Rhode Island Canine Search and Rescue team, Canine Mastery Jumpmasters, Disc Dog demo by Pawsitive Paws and much more.
For more information and the official schedule of events, head over to our Facebook page where we have several posts and the official flyer posted! You may also contact Tammy at (774) 218-8139 for information on volunteering or to rent space at the event.
Hope to see you there!
