City of Darwin animal education officers offer free walks and events for you and your pet.
Walk 'N Wag
City of Darwin has joined with the Heart Foundation to run a series of community dog walks -‘Walk ‘N Wag’ – aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle and helping dog owners socialise their animals.
The Walk ‘N Wag events are held every second Tuesday afternoon for 45 minutes, meeting at 5.15pm and starting at 5.30pm.
Each Walk ‘N Wag event will be held at a different location, giving dog owners an opportunity to try walks they have never done before.
Walk locations in the first Walk ‘N Wag series included The Esplanade, Mindil beach, Vesteys beach, Nightcliff foreshore and Cullen Bay. Planning for the second series is already underway with The Botanic Gardens, Lee Point beach, Rapid Creek, Sunset beach, Holmes Jungle, Casuarina beach and the Mangrove Boardwalk likely to feature.
City of Darwin animal education officers will be on hand to provide dog owners with advice and support on a range of pet management issues.
If you are interested in joining any of the walks you can register your interest by sending an email to email@example.com. Dog owners participating in the walks are asked to ensure their dogs are kept on a lead and to bring ‘poop’ bags.
The Barking Matters workshop is a free monthly workshop held on the last Wednesday of each month at the Nightcliff Community Centre from 6pm- 7pm.
The workshop is for anyone wanting to understand barking behaviours and how to work with your pets to better understand their needs and live in a happier community with them.
City of Darwin animal education officers will be on hand to provide advice and support. This is an interactive human only workshop, please leave your dogs at home.
