The event, which was titled “Humane and Responsible – The Only Solution” was staged at the Bina location on Wilson's Promenade, with the purpose of the continuation of the get-together tradition and to encourage positive changes in responsible dog ownership and understanding of legal, humane and permanent solution to the problem of stray dogs. As part of the event, the members of the Dogs Trust team presented their programmes, enabled visitors to get first-hand answers, and a prize draw was organised for those visitors who sent their video clips and illustrated works on the topic of using positive motivation in dog training and humane treatment of animals.
