Free dog training day

The canines of Cambridgeshire would have to be barking mad to miss this - Roddons Housing Association is on the hunt for the area’s best behaved dogs.

They will be put through their paces at a day of free obedience training being run by Roddons and local dog training club K9 this Saturday (20th July).

March’s dog lovers will also get useful tips and advice on being better owners in a bid to tackle increasing complaints about dog fouling, excessive barking and out of control animals in the town.

Managing director of Roddons Jenny Hodson said: “We want to reward the area’s best and brightest dogs by running a fun day of free training for them and their owners.

“It will also give local owners the chance to find out exactly what they should do to keep their pet happy and healthy, such as how to make sure they are exercised properly and can be clearly identified if lost.”

The event will be held in Russell/Peyton Avenue Play Area on Saturday, from 11am to 2pm.
