A canine problem-solving clinic will take place on Saturday, May 4 in Maxi Zoo, Longford Town.

Ciaran Walsh MISAP., Dip. Canine Training Instructor will be on hand to deliver the talk and answer any questions that dog-owners may have.

The general aim of the Maxi Zoo clinic is to demonstrate how easily dog behaviour problems can be resolved.Often this can achieved by slight changes to the owner’s daily routine such as where, when and how the pet is handled.

Every year in Ireland about 40,000 dogs are adopted; of these 28% to 31% end up as strays. Over half of all 11,000 dogs surrendered to dog pounds and rescue shelters have a common history; at the point of adoption (or sale) the original owner was ill-prepared and ill-advised of the responsibilities that come with dog ownership.

In all cases the tax-payer picks up the tab!
