Complete Pet Food is the proud sponsor of the 2017 Walk the Talk Dog Walk
1. A maximum of TWO dogs will be allowed per participant.
2. Only pre- entered dogs will be allowed on the 5km & 8km walks.
3. Entry for dogs is FREE!
In order to keep their tails wagging, please consider the following points carefully before deciding to participate with your canine companions:
x* To participate in the 5km or 8km walks, dogs must be medically fit to walk, socialised to be with other dogs and people and be on a leash. Your dog must be able to handle the stress of large crowds and strange noises.
* Please be aware and considerate of fellow walkers when bringing your dogs to participate in the MTN Walk the Talk with 702
* Age does count - Small to medium size dogs must be older than 12 months and younger than 10 years. Large to giant-size must be older than 18 months and younger than 7 years. We love dogs that love other dogs and people. For the safety of all the participants, dogs that display aggressive behaviour towards other dogs, people, food or toys will be removed from the route. To discourage aggressive behaviour, we recommend dog owners only bring dogs that are spayed or neutered.
* Leads on for the walk - Your dog must be lead trained. Leads should be no longer than 2 metres. For safety reasons, no retracting leads are allowed and choke collars are discouraged. Dogs must be under the direct control of their owners at all times. A maximum of 2 dogs per person is allowed.
* Health and safety of dogs - Breeds predisposed to heat exhaustion (such as bulldogs, boxers, pugs, boerboels and Pekingese) and unfit or overweight dogs are not encouraged to walk the 8km.
* Please make sure your dogs are up-to-date with vaccinations and tick and flea control.
* Please don’t forget to keep your dog/s well hydrated at all times.
* Remember to take a plastic bag (doggy-doo bag) along with you for cleaning up any mess after your dog. Don’t bring your dogs if they are injured or ill. There will be veterinarians on duty and they reserve the right to remove any dog that is not well, too young or seems to be struggling from the walk.
