The star of GMA-7’s fantasy drama Aso ni San Roque, Princess ‘D Dog, was the star of an event that aimed to capture and develop a better companionship between man and his best friend.
The two-year-old celebrity canine, which was the most photographed pet of the day, mingled with hundreds of dogs in the very first National Geographic Channel’s Doggy Day Camp held at the Bonifacio Global City Amphitheatre over the weekend.
In the event, Princess ‘D Dog and her furry four-legged friends experienced going around the campsite where they were pampered with free massages and grooming services. A parade and a mini agility race by Urban Sports K9 highlighted the dogs’ participation in this affair. The camp also put up a photo exhibit that featured ten of the best submitted heroic dog feats across the country.
With all of those activities centered on man’s best friend, pet owners on the other hand had the chance to learn valuable tips and tricks from world-renowned dog behavior expert Cesar Millan via the special screening of the new season of Dog Whisperer. This was complemented by informational forums: proper feeding and animal nutrition by Born to be Wild host Ferdz Recio; common dog behavioral issues, administered by Pawsitive Education resident veterinarian; and responsible pet ownership, discussed by Philippine Animal Welfare Society official.
A mass pet blessing and awarding of special prizes capped the first NatGeo Doggy Day Camp.
