“Ask the pet trainer” at Pet-lovers Day, June 9th

2 May


Due to popular demand, Friends of Berczy Park is hosting another Pet-lovers Day in Berczy Park on Saturday June 9th, from 9am to noon (rain date: Sunday June 10th, 9am to noon).
Stop by the mural garden behind the Flatiron Building for free pet treats, complimentary coffee, and meet your furry and human neighbours, starting at 9am.

Pet-owners got lots of great training advice at our 2017 event!

From 10am to noon,
meet our professional pet trainer, Sydney, from Fresh Puppy and “Ask the Pet Trainer” a question during this free activity. It’s a great chance to ask our expert for puppy training tips, teach Rex a new trick, or address a pet issue like jumping, barking, recall or other behavioural issues you may face. Even if you are just thinking of getting a puppy, stop by, since Sydney has lots of great advice for future pup parents.

By the way: Got old pet toys, clothes or supplies you don’t need? Bring them to our event and we’ll donate them to Project Jessie, a rescue and adoption program run by the


Bring your used or un-needed pet supplies for Project Jessie rescue shelter.

Animal Alliance of Canada.

Special thanks to our event sponsors PetValu, 184 Front St East and Tim Hortons at 33 Yonge St and 55 Front St E.

    Is all the grass dead in the park from all the dog piss? It looks horrible. There has to be a way to prevent the park from turning into a dog piss ridden park?

      Hi KJ, thanks for writing. We don’t think we can blame dogs for all the dead grass, since technically only female dog urine causes grass staining. The dead grass is mostly due to soil compaction by heavy people traffic on the lawns and will likely require re-seeding or sodding by The City in the fall. That said, we are planning a campaign as part of our next Pet-lovers Event to encourage pet owners to always poop & scoop, & try to use the gravel mural garden area for ‘pet relief’ as much as possible. We also encourage you to call 3-11 to comment about the dead grass, since that will prompt the City to repair the grass sooner. Thanks
