For the first time, at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, September 27, 2008, dog owners across the country will unite and walk their dogs in support of responsible dog ownership. The National Office of the Canadian Kennel Club, in support of National Responsible Dog Ownership Week will also be holding our “Walk of Support” on RDOG DAY, Saturday, September 27. Walkers will depart from CKC Head Office at 200 Ronson Drive at 11:00 a.m. and will walk for 45 minutes, returning by 11:45 a.m. for a scheduled Press Conference.
The “Walk of Support” is part of a day of activity lasting between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Please take this opportunity to have your dog certified as a CKC Canine Good Neighbour, and visit with supporters of this CKC RDOG initiative and hear what they have to say about the importance of responsible dog ownership in every community across Canada. We believe that knowledge through education is the path to safer communities, so bring your family, friends and neighbours, Toronto, but most importantly, bring your dogs!!!
Take a step with us on the “Walk of Support” for responsible dog ownership and a better understanding of the benefits our canine friends bring to society. Please wear an RDOG armband and wear it with pride.
Please note that Canine Good Neighbour evaluations will be booked on a first come basis and spaces are limited so reserve early by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
A message from the CKC: Be responsible, your dog will love you for it!
