This day consists of a variety of activities from demonstrations, CKC's K-9 Good Neighbour testing, free nail cutting, a rabies clinic, license tag sales, vendor and child safety. We bring in a variety of disciplines and in the past have had dog performance teams, police detection dogs and therapy dogs.

All of our Animal Control Officers are trained in Emergency Pet First Aid, CKC K-9 Good Neighbour Evaluators, CPR, breed recognition and aggression handling. All Officers are capable of laying charges, including under "Dog Owner's Liability Act" and preparing and attending court hearings.
