There has been some misinformation on social media recently regarding possible dog baits at Kingston dog beach and/or Kingston View Drive dog exercise area.
The Kingborough Dog Walking Association would like to assure everyone that after comprehensive investigation by Kingborough Council, the Tasmanian Police and local veterinarians, there is no evidence to support this claim.
There is confirmation of canine gastroenteritis being contracted by unfortunate canines. We understand this is a natural illness with a number of possible causes, and we ask you to reconsider visiting heavily-populated dog exercise areas if you are concerned. Neighbourhood on-lead walks are just as beneficial.
For ideas on engagement and play with your dog, please consult the Kingborough Dog Owner's Handbook.
We wish any unwell pooches a speedy recovery.
