It’s no secret that Bracken Ridge Ward residents are some of the biggest dog lovers on Brisbane’s northside with 5,179 dogs currently registered. In recent years this has also seen the growing popularity of Council’s dog off-leash parks, enabling owners to let their pets stretch their legs and interact with other dogs at the same time. Many owners may be interested to know that many parks also feature a dedicated ‘small dog’ area too.
Another great addition to these parks is the installation of dog agility and training equipment. Given the overwhelmingly positive response to the planned training and agility equipment for Barrett Street Reserve, Bracken Ridge, we will undoubtedly see this featured in more locations to come. If you have any suggestions, please contact me.
On the topic of all things fur-friendly, it’s worth keeping an eye out for Council’s discounted microchipping events where owners can have their pets microchipped at heavily discounted rates, so you can be reunited with them faster in the event they get out or lost.
If you're looking for a new four-legged best friend, pop into Animal Welfare League's Warra Re-Homing Centre, behind the Emily Seebohm Aquatic Centre on Telegraph Road.
For details on where to find your nearest off-leash area or an upcoming microchipping event please check Council’s website at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au.
