Pets in the Park, Brimbank’s annual Pet Expo for pet owners and animal lovers attracts some 2,000 visitors annually. It will feature microchipping at discounted prices, pet registration, dog agility demonstrations and a bevy of stalls with products, services and information for responsible pet owners. Four Paws K9 Training from Keilor Downs will be on hand to offer handy tips on how to modify dog behaviours such as barking, lunging, aggression and other problem behaviours.
Registration of all cats and dogs over three months old is compulsory under the Victorian Domestic Animals Act and since 2007, newly registered cats and dogs must also be microchipped and de-sexed. Microchipping ensures a speedy reunion with lost pets.
De-sexed and microchipped pets can be registered on the day at no charge, provided owners can provide evidence of microchipping and de-sexing. There's also pet grooming, demonstrations on how to safely greet a dog and Wicked Wildlife will be there with a selection of their extensive collection featuring over 100 Australian Animals. Get up close and personal with a whole posse of cute and fuzzies including possums, wombats and wallabies and the occasional croc!
Pets in the Park is also a fun, family-orientated event with lots of fun activities at no charge to keep kids amused including a giant jumping castle, an animal farm, face painting with Busy Fingers, plaster painting, great give-aways and more. Don't miss it.
Please note: All dogs must be on leashes and all cats in carry cages.
