Come out with your four-legged friends and family on May 5 for the CaniChazz Family Walk at Parc de la Rivière-des-Mille-Îles in Sainte-Rose.
The day features a dog-bite prevention workshop for children, a walk on the banks of the River, agility and trick demonstrations that you can participate with your dog and more.
There will be a dog show in the afternoon and draws for prizes including free consultations from Fusion canine and baskets of Quebec-made dog products. The event, co-chaired by Sainte-Rose councilor Virginie Dufour is free and open to all, and you can also watch animal artist Patrick Larrivée at work and have a chance to win one of his paintings.
CaniChazz is working to become the Quebec reference for the prevention of dog bites and the education of citizens of all ages on communication and canine language, and the creation of a society where people and dogs live in harmony. This can be achieved through educational services, information and awareness to municipalities, schools and various communities, to educate young people about canine language, educating the public about the basic and scientific principles of dogs, and promoting a relationship based on communication and trust.
