Renfrew trainer takes part in mass dog walk

St Mirren Dog Training attended a mass dog walk in Robertson Park, in Renfrew, to help promote responsible dog ownership. 

The walk was part of Renfrewshire Council’s Take the Lead campaign and saw more than 50 people bring their dogs along.

Owners were asked to sign up to the Responsible Dog Owner pledge that makes a commitment to always taking bags on walks to pick up after their dog, encouraging other owners to do so, and keeping the dog on a lead in public places. 

Paisley-based St Mirin Dog Training was on hand to give a demonstration of top training techniques. 

Owner Denise Symon told Renfrewshire News: “We thoroughly enjoyed the Take the Lead event. It was lovely to see such a large gathering of dogs all having fun. 

“Lots of people took the chance to have a go at the different dog sports and chat to our trainers and there were some beautiful dogs in the dog show making it very hard to choose the rosette winners. And the sun shone, so a perfect day.” 

Take the Lead is part of the council’s wider Team Up to Clean Up campaign and took place during Spotless September which brings thousands of volunteers together to take part in litter picks across Renfrewshire.
