Humans and canines to share walk for awareness

September 5, 2012 by  

An adventurous walking tour starts this weekend at The Ram Restaurant and Big Horn Brewery and winds its way down the scenic Boise River. Guests are invited to bring their dogs, no matter what the breed or size, as long as the dog is black in color.

The ‘Free Dog Days of Summer, Black Dog Walk’ is designed to promote awareness of a phenomenon that has come to be known as ‘Black Dog Syndrome’, with many shelter owners of the belief that black dogs tend to be less favored by potential adopters.

During this event, there will be adoptable dogs on display from local animal shelters and rescue centers, samples of free food for dogs and H3Pet foods, and free training for pooches. Besides these events, there will be a free raffle providing someone with the lucky chance to spend three full days at Camp Bow Wow. A great selection of live music will be on the grounds throughout the walk, plus a number of informational booths and organizations. Guests are invited to come out and share a great fitness and learning opportunity with their best friend – their dog. Pets must be on leashes at all times.

The Black Dog Walk starts this Sunday, September 9, at 12:00 pm. Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to let pet owners know about this awareness-raising trip. Admission is free and everyone is welcome, including their pets. For more detailed information, please visit the Snip Idaho website.
