What a fantastic event for young, old, tall, short, beefy or dainty members of the canine society to get out and socialise!

Paws on the shore, held at Moana Beach foreshore on Sunday 28th April is a 2km walk on the beach for owners and dogs.

There is such a great feeling watching all the dogs greet each other, tails wagging a million miles an hour, noses to the ground as they search for a new scent or proudly dig a hole in the sand.

Can't wait to play!

There is the occasional growl after an over exuberant puppy gives too much affection to an older dog but it is all part of doggie learning.

A gold coin donation for entry into the walk is all that is required for the family friendly event.

On the grass area, just up from the beach, is an area set up showing demonstrations from the Southern Districts Obedience School and a pet photographer taking portraits with donations going to the RSPCA.

After the walk over to the dog friendly, Deep Blue café for a coffee and lunch.

Even if you don't want to bring your own dog it is definitely worth getting out to see this event. Even as a dog lover, there were breeds I had never seen before and most owners were happy for you to give their dog a cuddle or take photos of them.

It was also a great opportunity to showcase the breeds that in recent media reports are considered "dangerous dogs" proving that any breed of dog can play with children, or other dogs with the right treatment and training.

So next year if you want to get out and about, get involved in the Paws on the Shore Walk organised by the Onkaparinga Council.
If you are thinking about getting a dog it is also a fantastic opportunity to be exposed to all the different breeds and talk to owners about the dogs helping you work out what is the best breed for you as owners are only too happy to tell you what its like to own a dog like theirs!
