Huon Valley Dog Walking Association marked almost a year since the group started. We joined primarily to ensure that our dogs get on with other dogs and are not always walked on their own. The association is working with the local council to ensure that there are enough safe and accessible dog exercise areas in the Valley, something I wholeheartedly support. There should be some good news on that front soon... I also think it is important to promote responsible dog ownership. A well cared for and socialised dog is nice for people to be around (and pat and cuddle) while unsocialised dogs are a nuisance to everyone.
Last Sunday we walked with the lovely people and dogs from the HVDWA around Cygnet after the Sunday market, concluding with coffee on the apple crates outside The Lotus Eaters cafe. Very pleasant indeed. If you live in the Huon Valley and own a dog why not come along and see what it is all about? More info here and at the link above.
