A great day for 1000 Paws 2018

The 10th annual 1000 Paws Walk on Sunday 15 July went off extremely well, despite a cold, damp Saturday. Luckily Sunday dawned cool but sunny, and people came in their droves to enjoy a fantastic day of walking and playing with their dogs in their own time, at their own pace, in a safe environment at Hilton College.

There were displays by the Bruntville Dog Project kids and canines, dog and owner competitions, rousing music from the Pietermaritzburg Caledonian Pipe Band and an amazing demonstration of dog skills by search and rescue dog Harley and the tiny Maltese Poodle Sugar, who was taught to track with chicken livers by Moira and Derek of the K9 Academy in Rosetta.

According to documentation from the registration tables, 533 dogs were there! Thank you to everyone who supported this event, from the helpers on the day to prize donors, the sponsors, stall-holders, raffle ticket sellers and buyers, the schools who collected funds for the event, and of course all those who came along.

Roll on 1000 Paws 2019!
