PROMOTING BIG DAYS OUT!

One of the initiatives we are trying to encourage at DOGS NSW is promoting club meet ups. If you have organised a big day out, or something similar in the past, and plan to do another one this year, we wanted to ask if you would like some marketing support in promoting it.

The idea is that we will promote the event on our Website, our Weekly Woof e-newsletter and our Socials and support you in getting more people to come along.

If you are interested please get in touch by email: info@dogsnsw.org.au
