GET INTO SHAPE AT RSPCA’S DOGGY BOOT CAMP


RSPCA Care Centre Assistant Jane Baldwin takes Border Collie cross Jess for a run in the park.  

The RSPCA Care Centre at Rouse Hill invites everyone to join their first ever Doggy Boot Camp on Sunday, 27th May. The RSPCA Doggy Boot Camp highlights the importance of keeping dogs fit and healthy through regular exercise and a good diet in order to live a long and happy life.

RSPCA Care Centre Retail Assistant Chloe Moran said that many dogs in Australia are overweight or obese, which can lead to heart disease, diabetes or other serious illnesses.

“During winter people tend to be less motivated to exercise and walk their dogs, which can lead to weight gain,” said Mrs Moran. “We want to help encourage people to exercise with their dogs more and have fun at the same time.”

Representatives from Hills Science Diet will be there to offer nutritional advice and information about their PetFit program, which is designed to help dogs lose weight and stay in shape.

The RSPCA Education Team will also be available to talk about responsible pet care and dog safety.

Everyone attending the day will receive a show bag and there are prizes to be won for various races and top performers for each session.

‘Come along to the Doggy Boot Camp! It will motivate everyone to keep the weight off this winter!’

For a fun-filled day, head to the RSPCA Care Centre on Civic Way in the Rouse Hill Town Centre on Sunday 27th May. The first session will be from 11am until 11:30 and the second session from 1:30pm until 2pm.
