Kano State Dog Walk(First Time Ever)

Last updated:

The passion and love for dogs in Nigeria, is gradually covering and affecting every citizen of this country. States where there are usually no dog activities are beginning to host some. Kano state is not left out as they just observed their first walk in history. Kano State Dog Walk

In Nigeria, the northern states are the least when it comes to canine activities.
On the 28th Dec.2018. Kano state dog lovers organized their “first ever” dog walk.
Registration to be a participant was absolutely free for all.

The event began by 10:00am( I know for sure that the northern states in Nigeria have higher temperatures than other region/States in Nigeria).

NB: Having dog activities in high temperatures may bring about “heat strokes” in dogs.- very few dogs make it out of such conditions(especially when noticed earlier by the handler).

Since this was there first time to host such event, the turnout wasn’t as massive as other states that have observed 2-3 dog walks/events.
Nevertheless, the event was a very successful one as it was fully packed with lots of exciting activities such as:
– Dog Tricks
– Dog Exhibitions and parade
– Skill and Obedience Display
-Award-Giving etc..
