Pet owners can learn useful tips for caring for their pets and keeping the community safe at Moreton Bay Regional Council’s first ‘Pets in Public Spaces’ education event tomorrow, July 10.

The free event is for owners to hear about tips and tricks on how to reduce barking, suitable fencing and enclosure options and increase awareness about walking and exercising dogs safely in public.

Mayor Peter Flannery says while the sessions are aimed at dog owners, cat owners are welcome too and free microchipping is available for registered dogs.

“The aim of our free pet-friendly education events is to provide you with valuable information and resources on being a responsible pet owner,” Mayor Flannery says.

Roving sessions

Bookings are not required but masks must be worn, social distancing observed and attendees must sign in upon arrival.

Over the next 12 months, the program will rotate across the region to Upper Caboolture, Kallangur, Deception Bay, Clontarf, North Lakes, Petrie, Eatons Hill, Ferny Hills, Narangba, Bongaree and Beachmere.

The program will run once a month, each in a new location to encourage as many pet owners as possible to attend.

Mayor Flannery says pets are a wonderful addition to a family but it is important to understand the responsibilities that come with it.

“Being a responsible pet owner is much more than providing water, food and a home for your pet,” he says.

“It’s also ensuring your pet is registered, microchipped, secured in your property, not creating a nuisance in the community such as roaming or barking, and not causing harm to people or other animals.”

The education session is at Centenary Lakes, Caboolture from 8am-noon.
