Association des Propriétaire de chien de Buckingham et des environs
Our non-profit organisation is responsible of the management of a fenced dog park in Gatineau, Québec. We currently have about 75 registred members but more than 600 visitors. Our park is extremely busy, receiving people with their dogs 7 days a week. We can often see more than 30 to 40 dogs with their owner and family.
Our focus is to serve our city with a secure exercice field for dogs but on a more global approch, by having dogs in the park, we also have owners that either walk or drive, they move and walk with their dogs, they play fetch wich also make the people activity as well. We thrive to have more structures, trees and landscape in the park to bring more citizen in and have a greater impact on their healt and for their dogs.
We currently have plans to offer some training like "Doga" (Yoga with dogs) Canicross, Disk dog, agility dog training to name a few. We will host some event during summer 2021 like a neighbourhood festive day, clean-up day around the park, walk with a dog and visit a elderly residence for them to see the dogs and people.
By all means, all of the activity will strictly follow Covid-19 restrictions and could potentially be restricted in number of person, delivered virtually or pushed back to a later date in order to prevent risks.
