Gone Barking Mad will have a fun and educational theme to it and will have attractions to include Dog Agility and Dog Training Demonstrations, Dog Olympics and a Fun Dog Show. There will be face painting, a barrel train ride, refreshments, entertainment and lots more. There will be talks by Irish Guide Dogs and others covering topics such as Best Way to Approach a Dog, Essential First Aid and Essential Dog Care. There will be plenty of stalls to allow dog owners attend to their dog’s every need.
Gone Barking Mad will launch Green Dog Walking to County Cork and in so doing will increase awareness amongst dog owners of their responsibility to clean up after their dog. Cork County Council is supporting this initiative and there will be a lot of publicity closer to the date.
