Bark Busters to speak

comment
P>Trail users are as varied as the paths that make up Pemberton’s substantial trail system. And the needs of some user groups can come into conflict with others.

The Pemberton Valley Association will be hosting a series of open discussions relevant to trail use beginning on Wednesday, Nov. 30 with "Dog Do’s and Don’ts". The discussion, scheduled to run from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Pemberton Community Centre, will focus on various aspects of responsible dog handling on local trails and in the backcountry.

Presenting speakers will include conservation officer Chris Doyle, Whistler Bylaws Animal Control Officer Kristy Broadbent and Sandy Yates, a professional dog handler and owner of Bark Busters. A question and answer period will follow.

Twisted Whisker pet supply is providing free doggie treats for all participants. There will also be refreshments for the non-canine crowd.
