A third cani-citizenship event to give dogs their place in the city!
They make the happiness of their owners, they are companions of life, faithful friends of the children and improve the condition of seniors (according to a scientific Scottish study), nevertheless, the dogs are always badly received in town.
Their excrement and the damage they can cause is often the reason, however thanks to the My Dog, My City mission and its partners, things could change...
A demonstration to improve the status of dogs in town
For the tr For the third year in a row, the cani-citizenship event, organized by the OKA committee, will take place on 20 September. The goal? To make "that a city without a dog is a city without soul" and thus claim a better city life for our four-legged friends.
The agenda will therefore be to challenge the public opinion and elected officials about the importance of the dog in the city, but also to educate teachers about their homework. Because, less feces means more freedom for our canines!
On the site of "My dog my city", the 10 commandments of the urban master are dictated:
1) Never by caprice or to please, a dog you will not
2) Know that for at least 10 years, he will accompany you
3) Feed him properly and water him, always you will think
4) Immunize him, heal him and to assure also it will be necessary
5) To educate it and to promote its sociability, you will not neglect
6) To walk it sufficiently, always you will have
7) To play with him, to make him happy, you will
8) To avoid any incident, on a leash you will walk
9) The cleanliness of the streets you will respect and smile you will keep
10) For the holidays, your dog you will not forget
The conclusion is very simple and full of common sense: "By applying these principles think that your dog will be loving and sociable, so it will be better accepted by your fellow citizens."
