Furry friends and heaps of fun

Camden’s dogs and their human friends are invited to join the fun at this year’s Paws in the Park event.

The annual event will take place on Sunday, May 7 from 9am to 1pm at Camden Bicentennial Equestrian Park.

The Camden Council event aims to encourage the caring and responsible ownership of pets.

Camden mayor Lara Symkowiak has invited everyone to come along.

“This is a celebration of dogs, their owners and a chance for everyone to enjoy a special community day in Camden,” she said.

“Pets are important to the health and well being of residents.

“Dogs are family members and encourage a healthy lifestyle that includes walking, outdoor activities and connecting their owners with the community.”

People can show off their pet pooch in a dress up competition, pose with them in the photo booth, join a three kilometre walk and enjoy the entertainment on offer.

Competitions will begin at 10am for best trick, cutest puppy, fancy dress, ‘waggiest’ tail and best dressed in footy colours.

More than 40 stalls and displays will be available on the day, as well as discounted microchipping, dog registrations, free vet health checks, obedience and agility demonstrations.
