BLACK Beach will be over-run with man's best friend at the upcoming Canine Carnival.
Organised by Kiama Council, the event will allow dog owners to pick up tips about how to care for their dogs and meet with veterinarians and council rangers.
"One of the main reasons [that] we're having the Canine Carnival is so people can meet and greet with the rangers, and we can explain to them how we go about things and clear up a few things about the new legislation surrounding dangerous and menacing dogs," council ranger Tom Ward explained.
A limited number of discounted micro-chipping vouchers will be available to dog owners on the day.
The event will take place at Black Beach from 10am to 2.30pm on July 26.
All dogs at the event must be on a leash and be under the control of somebody aged at least 16 years old.
